"In Heaven there is no (black) beer, that’s why we drink it here,
And when we’re gone from here, our friends will be drinking all the beer."
Blackbeers is a Celtic-Rock band based in Bucharest-Romania.
The band was formed in Oradea (Romania) in late 1999 by Peter Moynahan, and debuted as a traditional Irish music group. Since 2005 plays Celtic-rock and after a two year break (2008-2009) the Blackbeers were back on stage celebrating the 2010 edition of St. Patrick’s Day in a new line-up, now also performing Irish-punk. The band's repertoire includes traditional Celtic music in our own orchestration and cover versions of Dropkick Murphy's, Flogging Molly, The Mahones, Perry Rose, The Pogues, Great Big Sea.
In October-December 2014 we celebrate 15 years since the first Blackbeers concert. The tour will start in Bucharest on October 3 and a number of gigs will follow in several cities all round Romania. Keep on close for updates!
