About The O'Blimeys

Public liability insurance of £10 million
The O'Blimeys are a North East based rag-tag bunch or vaguely Irish musicians playing equally vaguely "Celtic" rock, pop, trad and more

The O'Blimeys were blown together by a North East wind one St Patrick's Night in Stockton-on-Tees. With a repertoire that nods a head to the traditional and expected but also encompasses some less-travelled fayre from the likes of Hothouse Flowers, Van Morrison and The Divine Comedy it's a breath of fresh air for those wanting something a little less predictable. Played with relish and pace it's a band for many occasions with wedding, private parties and pub type gigs under their belts.
