Ballyrag sprang from the fertile asphalt of Venice California. It blends old school jazz with modern pop rock sensibilities, an element of funk, a cut of Caribbean, and a slice of salsa, concocting a rich melodic feast with deeply flavored lyrics. Ballyrag is at home playing to adoring crowds on the Venice Boardwalk and the 3rd Street Promenade in between more straight-laced club gigs.
