...This is one of the best groups playing around Southern California today! The band is energetic, fun, and comprised of gifted musicians.”

— Irish Arts and Entertainment: Annual Irish Music Special

Sportive Tricks - Celtic Music with a Kick

A Southern California folk band formed in 2006 with a heavy Celtic influence, Sportive Tricks takes traditional music and gives it a rousing twist. From Irish sing-alongs to folk-rock music to sea chanteys to original songs, the seven members of Tricks each bring their voices, instruments*, and energy for a foot-tapping good time. If you're looking for a fun and versatile band that's equally at home at pubs, festivals, historical events, fairs, or private parties, drop us a line!

 
 

*Not kidding about this one. Most of us play multiple instruments, and one of us plays 56 of them. Really! Heck, five out of seven of us play bass..Hence the Sportive Tricks Drinking Game: take a drink when any of us changes instruments. (Please play responsibly!)

 

Announcements

Live shows? YES. We are BACK! Come to Las Vegas to join us at the Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival on October 15th-17th at Sunset Park.

And best wishes to Sheldon, who has moved all the way to the East Coast. We miss you, buddy!

Our latest album, Every Trick in the Book, is available here on our site! Twenty-six instruments, ten voices, and sixteen tracks including traditional, covers, and originals. Visit our shop* for more information, and the CD will also be available at all of our live shows. 

Check back here or follow us on Facebook for more announcements.

*When you purchase directly from independent artists rather than through conventional music sites, 100% of the funds go to the band (for us, it goes to our our instruments, equipment, CD production costs, etc.). Conventional music sites only give the artists between <1% and 9%, and it's usually closer to the former. We appreciate your support!
