Brewtality celebrates high-energy spirit of St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is about celebrating and dancing, reminds promoter-musician Utah Burgess.

"And I have two bands that will help you do both," the Buffalo Township resident assures, discussing his annual Brewtality concert March 17 at Peter B's, Sarver.

The "brew" part of that title is a reference, of course, to the favorite beverage of many when it comes to the wearin' of the green.

The North-Hills based Tina Daniels Band, in its Brewtality debut, and the returning, award-winning Anger the Ant from Butler plan to keep the fun going all night.

"We fuel the rock-southern blues vein. We promise to give people a great show. It's an honor to be part of it," says lead vocalist Tina Daniels. As for Irish connections in the repertoire, Daniels jokes, "The closest thing our band has to Ireland is our bass player Keith Gamble has a ritual where he must eat Lucky Charms before every show."

Angry the Ant was the 2016 Grassy Award winning band, as voted on by listeners of the rock station 97.7 (WLER, Butler), for their song, "Drunk on Us."

The group headlined at last year's local Grassroots Music Festival.

"We're often told our music reminds people of Matchbox 20 when they first burst on the national scene," says Don Shearer, lead singer and acoustic guitarist. "We focus on giving crowds a unique, entertaining and high-energy experience celebrating the spirit of the holiday."

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
