Of all the bands I’ve been in, The Tim Malloys might be my favorite. Frenetic and fun, this is Irish music without the lilt. Rebel songs are our mainstay, but we also have room for long jams. If I can’t stretch out and improvise with a group, I get bored in a hurry. It helps that I like everyone personally, as well. Turns out you can stay friends with people in your band!
There have been a number of permutations to The Tim Malloys, but the core (for me) has always been the group of idiots above: John on the left, Neil on the right, and me in the middle. That was a candid shot, and could have been taken at any of our gigs for the last twenty years. It is that much fun.

- 7.5 minute video of Tims playing “Running to Stand Still” at the 2017 MN Irish Fair. Solid jam at the end.
