'tis - Traditional Irish Session is a five member group of music enthusiasts that play all the favorite songs, jigs, and reels of Ireland. While distinctively traditional and always entertaining, Irish/Celtic music is mostly played, but it's not ALL that you'll experience when listening to 'tis. Our goal is to entertain our audience with high energy, hand clapping, foot stomping music that will certainly leave you with a smile! The band consist of: Tim Benkowski on fiddle, Chet Celenza on guitar, Patrick O'day on fiddle & tin whistle, John Manthe on mandolin, and Tom Mortensen on percussion. The guys love to celebrate Ireland's musical heritage (and just a wee bit of their own) with just abut anyone who will sit down and share a pint at any Irish pub, festival, gathering, wedding or ANYWHERE else Irish music is enjoyed and appreciated!
