Ladies and Gentlemen
Last year we went to one of the best events we ever had. Over 25 of us showed up.
Well-the band POTCHEEN was playing at Naggy's. They're back tonight.
They are an amazing entertaining, fun, funny Celtic/Irish band. We laughed we danced.
Check out they're web http://www.thepotcheenfolkband.com/fr_home.cfm
They start after 9, I'll be there early and try to get a large table. They said it will be full by 8:00. Last time it was packed. The lead singer is from Ireland, has a very heavy accent and is hilarious. Please RSVP or text if you plan on going. It's free and so so much fun.

The Description: Pronounced ( Po-cheen)
Poitín, anglicised as Poteen or Potcheen, is a traditional Irish distilled, highly alcoholic beverage (60%-95% ABV). Poitín was traditionally distilled in a small pot still and the term is a diminutive of the Irish word pota, meaning "pot". Traditionally distilled from malted barley grain or potatoes, it is one of the strongest alcoholic beverages in th...e world (renowned for its ability to get the drinker intoxicated the morning after drinking it by drinking water and thereby bringing the remaining ethanol back into solution), and for centuries was classified as illegal in Ireland.
Over the past 7 years Potcheen has seen many a pirate join us on our voyages across the country. Always something new but the spirit remains the same! The Capn' has boldly ventured ahead in this mission with his crew, never willing to quit. They acquired a new fighting vessel (tourbus) "Bonny" after "Grace" was attacked and destroyed by the FED EX trading company and the Capn' was seriously injured. But he came back fighting five months later... YARRRRRR
Crossing the terrestrial oceans of this country from New York to San Francisco, Potcheen has played thousands of shows, over 250 festival appearances and opened for some of the best performers in the world.
