The Rogue Diplomats are an Irish-American Pub Band based in New York City & Bethlehem, PA. Their unique blend of contemporary folk and traditional Irish music is delivered with charm and off-the-cuff humor. They got their start in Astoria, Queens, playing annual St. Patrick’s Day shows at Blackbird’s Bar. They’ve since gone on to play Bloomsday on Broadway, the annual celebration of the works of James Joyce and a multitude of pubs in New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. In September 2015, the Diplomats released their self-titled debut EP and were featured headliners at the 27th Annual Celtic Classic Highland Games & Festival in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
The Rogue Diplomats are Brian Donnelly (Guitar/Vocals), Matthew Breiner (Bodhrán/Tin Whistle/Vocals), Patrick Marran (Irish Bouzouki/Guitar/Vocals), and Nate Diehl (Accordion/Vocals).
They are available for Festivals, Irish Weddings, Concert Shows, and Events.
