SUNDAY MORNING BOYS History
From the foggy depths and smoky peat rose the Celtic musical experience of The Sunday Morning Boys. Like the thunderous collision of Shannon’s shillelagh with the heads of many a wayward suitors, Kerry Patrick Gavin (McRed Mustashio) and Frank James Kovac (Frankie O’ClinchJaw) met with a jolting smash in the dark and mossy ale house to find the common thread which binds all mankind together, music (and spirits).
Performing initially at the thatched home of Fargus, the first official performance was hosted by the fine harp player, McMassivehead, at his outdoor public house. Enlisting a holy host of other players at times including, James Patrick Kovac, ( O’Jedi Drumahan), Jefferey Wasserman (Shamus McKnowtoomuch), and countless other lads whom have proven themselves worthy of The Sunday Morning Boys Tradition. Be sure to go and see them whenever you can and be sure to sing, clap, and stomp not only on Sunday Morning but every morning or evening, with the The Sunday Morning Boys.

MYTHOLOGY OF S.M.B.
Tradition you say? For an event or person to be of value or worth it must be deeply embedded in tradition. Sunday Morning in general reckons back to the ancient and wise lone founding father of fully enjoying the Sunday Morning practice. With a name as common to the emerald isle, as salt is to the Atlantic, Johnny McNeil Wilson of the county Garbled Say, is the spiritual leader of all that is commendable to the kinship of bliss on that day. Also known as the Sunday Morning Kid and recently knighted as Sir Puffymug, Wilson is believed to have magical powers. For example, altering his voice to notes too low for mere mortals to recognize or expanding the skin around his face as a defense mechanism to intimidate would be predators. The most revered act of the supernatural is his believed ability to reverse dorsal bone otherwise known by Celtic warriors as the chestsickle. A weapon so fierce could impale any enemy even through armor. Believed to be related to Tuatha-de Danann: The race of magical Irish Gods Born of the Mother Goddess Danu, as the Sunday Morning Boys sing so do the millions of those joining in the blissfulness of the day and exemplified by Sir Puffymug.
