Sportive Tricks - Celtic Music with a Kick

A Southern California folk band with a heavy Irish influence, Sportive Tricks gives traditional music a rousing twist. They also play many original tunes, both serious and silly. Formed in 2006, Tricks’ music leans towards bands like Great Big Sea and Gaelic Storm with influences ranging from The Chieftains to Flogging Molly. Inspired by the rich traditions of Irish, Scottish, and English folk, Cape Breton music, and sea shanties, Sportive Tricks combines traditional instruments with new arrangements, high energy, and a dash of humor for a foot-tapping, hand-clapping good time.

Sportive Tricks plays year-round at pubs, festivals, and concerts throughout California. 

Back to the Woodshed

Happy holidays!  We are thankful for YOU, our wonderful friends, family, and fans, and we had such a great time with a huge crowd of you at Muldoon's Irish Pub to kick off Thanksgiving Week.  We debuted two new songs and we have more on the way!

In December, we're on private events, and we wish you all a very, very happy holiday season.

We're starting out the new year with our return to The Red Leprechaun in Long Beach on Saturday, January 21st, and we're already set for the Riverside Dickens Festival in February. 2017 is going to be big!
