San Diego’s Ass Pocket Whiskey Fellas have developed a reputation among local craft breweries, Irish Pubs and at numerous outdoor events for its rousing, crowd-pleasing, eclectic performances. Often incorporating and encouraging crowd participation, with a playlist that runs the gamut from Irish traditional, classic country, bluegrass, and classic rock, drawing a wide range of appeal for all ages.
This eight piece acoustic band was founded in the summer of 2011 by San Diego rock band veterans: Jack Laux, Steve Hoshko, and George Davis, looking to explore the connections between Irish traditional and American roots, and infusing a rock band delivery, while still utilizing all acoustic instruments.
The Fellas are regulars at various events around San Diego:
The Ocean Beach Street Fair
The Adams Avenue Street Fair
Twilight In The Park
Gator By The Bay
St. Patrick's Day Parade
Mission Valley Craft Beer Festival
Harbor Yacht Cruises
The Fellas are proud to share that their third CD, Third Flagon, has won the prestigious 2023 San Diego Music Awards' "Best Local Recording". The Fellas have all three of their albums, including Second Pint and First Flask, available on Amazon and iTunes. They have their own music station featured on Pandora as well.
2024 will have the Fellas playing as many events, clubs, and music festivals as possible across the western U.S., hoping to share their music with as many fans as possible.
“We have so much fun playing with each other, and our FellaFans have so much fun watching us have fun, that we have fun watching our FellaFans have fun watching us have fun. There’s just a lot of fun flying around at a FellaGig.” - Jack Laux
