With their versatility and well-seasoned skills, combined with on-stage foot stomping energy and off-stage charisma, Emish has been making fans from one coast to the other. Their music includes “emishified” traditional songs and tunes with their own original compositions that creates a sound described as “High-Powered Rock with Irish Heart”. In only five years since the conception of the group, they have already recorded three albums with their debut CD “This Light” selling over 8,000 copies. Their other albums include “One More Round”, 2008 and “Sinners Make the Best Saints”, 2011. Whether they are playing on the main stage at a festival, theatre halls or pubs, Emish brings an energy packed show with witty banter on stage, leaving their fans asking for more.
Musically, Emish has both polished and expanded their approach while retaining the quality of their sound that has hooked so many of their fans. Still very much present is the plaintive and moving lyrics and song writing of Bobby Curreri. Matched with the driving Fiddle and Flute duo of Christy Brown and Jennifer Curreri and solid rhythm of Matt Carlozzi on Drums and Mike Goliber on Bass, Emish and their new material has been dubbed as "A force to be reckoned with" by Matthew Nelligan, President of the Irish 2000 Music Festival which is one of the nations largest Irish Music Festivals.

It's this power bottled up into their music that has it's fans screaming rave reviews and has rocketed Emish into the spotlight of the North American Irish Musical Festival Circuit.
