Wasn’t That A Party [VIDEO]
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I thought I would dig deep for this little gem. I couldn’t find an “official” video, but did grab this live performance.
I was introduced to this group/song from my days back in Bangor, Maine. The group was originally know as the “Irish Rovers,” but by the early 80’s shortened their name to” The Rovers.” This song barely broke into the charts and stalled at #37.
Here’s a little about the group, from Wikipedia.
The Irish Rovers is a Canadian Irish folk group created in 1963 and named after the traditional song “The Irish Rovers”. The group is best known for their recording of Shel Silverstiens’s “The Unicorn” in 1967.
All of the band members are from Ireland.
The Irish Rovers have represented Canada in no less than five World Expos, and throughout the years, have continued to tour worldwide. In 2010, the band celebrated their 45 years of sharing their music with the world by producing a CD and a DVD/television special filmed entirely in Northern Ireland.
Have a happy and safe St. Patrick’s Day.
