Music From Around the World and Their Own Backyard
The Dooley Brothers have been a Chicago area favorite for over five decades. They have given thousands of performances throughout the Midwest and elsewhere at such venues as FitzGerald’s Nightclub, Taste of Chicago, Navy Pier, Irish American Heritage Center, and festivals, libraries, retirement homes, colleges and village outdoor concerts. The brothers have done live shows for National Public Radio and were featured on the Emmy-Award winning Channel 11 WTTW Chicago television show “Nightclubbing”. The group has always been known for its good-time music, musical variety and strong vocal harmonies. The band has also recorded four critically acclaimed albums and CDs.
During the last few years, two new Dooleys have been added to the group fronted by original brothers Jim (guitar, vocals) and Mike Dooley (bass guitar, vocals). Mike’s son Mick, plays guitar and adds vocals and Jim’s daughter Claire also sings. Hence this latest edition of the long-running musical group – The Dooley Band.
