Jamison Celtic Rock
Jamison grew out of the Irish-American streets of Northeast Philadelphia in 2003. Since then, Jamison has grown to offer one of the most high energy shows on the east coast, with dynamic reels mixed with rock, reggae, modern pop, hiphop dance beats and more – all while never straying far from their Irish roots. Fans are sure to leave a show with a sweaty shirt and an excitement that few live shows can produce.
Jamison has had songs featured on Midwest Radio in Ireland, was awarded “Best Band” in 2009 & 2012 by the Mt Holly St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee and more recently, won ‘Best Irish Band in America’ in the Strangford Lough battle of the bands where they were flown to Las Vegas to perform at McFadden’s. In 2012, Jamison won the ‘Best Entertainer’ award in the West Chester B.E.S.T. Awards.
Jamison is currently supporting the release of their first CD ‘LIVE’ and is available for pub, club, and festival booking nationally and is available for private events and weddings in northeast U.S.
