ABOUT THE BAND
Mickey Rickshaw's music has been described as high energy, integral, Celtic punk. Having started in 2014, the boys have quickly amassed a fanbase, and played the same bills as Flogging Molly, Rancid, NoFX, Bouncing Souls, and many other greats. Being invited to play on Flogging Molly's Salty Dog Cruise for three years in a row, is a true testament to the positive values and ethics that the band brings to the stage. In 2016 the band produced and recorded their second LP, Behind the Eight Ball, which was extremely well received by the community. The band has just recorded with Pete Steinkopf of the Bouncing Souls in producing their upcoming 2018 release, Home in Song.

About our fan base
We were able to self fund the record with our merch sales due to the support of our unbelievably loyal and dedicated fans. The following that we have built for ourselves is the most driving factor in what keeps this band motivated. For example, we made a youtube video in which we tricked one of the members into getting a Slim Jim tattoo (long story, but here's the video), and now anywhere we play in the continental US (or wherever Slim Jims are sold), people throw tubes of gas station spiced meat at us leaving the stage crew completely and utterly confused. Slim Jim won't even answer our emails and wants nothing to do with it. All of this reiterating the fact that when people get into our band, they really get into our band.
