Originally from Dublin, this duo consisting of multi-award winning guitarist and lead singer/songwriter Dave Rooney and Guinness World Record breaking guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Dave Browne are known for their original heartfelt ballad, raucous vocals, and rip-roaring fretwork.
See them LIVE as they perform a 45-minute set at the Carmel Youth Center as part of their 6-week road tour, together with an award winning production team and director from Hollywood, who will be capturing every aspect of the tour, while making a “rockumentary” which will be distributed across Europe and America on completion!
They will be highlighting the subject of immigration in America, raising money for charity, and exposing their original song “This is My Home” to the American audience, through performance, tv talk shows, news networks and associated press, social media and public performance.
The Black Donnellys have played with a wealth of well-known Irish artists such as: Ronny Drew, The Fureys, Johnny Logan, Aslan, The Pogues, and The Dubliners. Together they broke the world record for the longest concert ever held in 2014 in Las Vegas (372 hrs) and Dave Browne himself broke the world record in Dublin in 2011 for marathon guitar playing (114 hrs).
Their hit, “Notorious,” is the theme song of UFC champion fighter Conor McGregor. The song has been taken in with open arms by the UFC, and has been published globally. Rooney has written a second track ”We Are All Fighters” for the UFC’s social responsibility campaign, which was published in the first quarter of 2018.
Currently holding a residency at Rira Irish venue at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas strip, they are heading out on a Guinness world record 50 state American tour, kicking off in Las Vegas and will be performing here at the Carmel Youth Center on Saturday, May 12th!
