Farrell Brothers at Raglan Road Photo Gallery

Hailing from Ireland, the Farrell Brothers are one of the “house bands” at Raglan Road Irish Pub in Downtown Disney and almost always are providing the live entertainment on the porch. I created these photos over a few weeks in July & August 2013.

Farrell Brothers Covering Lynyrd Skynryd’s Sweet Home Alabama

Hailing from Ireland, the Farrell Brothers are one of the two “house bands” at Raglan Road Irish Pub in Downtown Disney and almost always are providing the live entertainment on the porch.

In this video, David Gilmore (left) and Sean Farrell (right) cover Lynyrd Skynyrd’s world famous rock anthem “Sweet Home Alabama” albeit with an Irish accent.

I’ve been hoping that they will once again perform this song so that I can get some more video, but this video remains to be the only evidence that exists that these guys EVER played Sweet Home Alabama.

The Farrell Brothers, which includes Sean’s brother Shane, will be performing during the Great Irish Hooley over the Labor Day Weekend. If you are lucky, or yell it loud enough, maybe, just maybe, they will play Sweet Home Alabama.

Disney’s Wishes Fireworks “Finale”.

Think of the great fireworks productions and the word finale usually means a build up and then WHAM! a bunch of shells get shot in the air and then the sky lights up, sorta like this one for the 4th of July.

The “Wishes” finale is not a huge “fill the sky with shells” type of finale. It is more like a few shells near each other and some ground cover. But, it is still pretty cool to see, up close.

Just Maybe at Tall Paul’s in Gainesville, FL

Some 35 years ago I “cut my teeth” shooting concerts. Name a band from the late 70’s to mid 90’s and I most likely covered their show(s) somewhere on this big blue marble called Earth.

I stopped shooting concerts several years ago to pursue other areas photographically, but recently I have made the professional decision to start shooting bands again. So far I have photographed Just Maybe, and the Farrell Brothers band, one of the two house bands at Raglan Road, the only Irish bar on Walt Disney World property (EPCOT’s Rose & Crown Pub is in the UK).

These photos are from Just Maybe’s July 20th show at Tall Paul’s in Gainesville.
