AND HIS BAND
Dynamic frontman, actor, singer, songwriter and trombone hero, Paddy was born and bred in Dublin, Ireland and buttered in Paris. A prolific songwriter, his show is 100% original songs
Burlesque and bravura served up with a big helping of the funkiest New Orleans second-line grooves you’ve ever heard. From Bunk to Monk through Skunk, Junk, Punk and Funk. Anything goes!
A tireless performer – More than a hundred and fifty gigs a year, every year, as well as studio sessions, theater performances, voiceover and film work.
He has played, recorded and toured with the likes of Linda Hopkins, Wendell Brunius, FFF, Phoenix, Chilly Gonzales, The Hot 8 Brass Band from New Orleans, Bernard Lavilliers, Black Minou and Liz McComb. He has played mainstage at the biggest festivals worldwide – Glastonbury, Paleofestival, Transmusicale de Rennes, Francofolies, Montreal Jazz fest, Lincon center NY, Kennedy center Washington DC, Barbican London, Pinkpop, Pukkelpop, Sonar Barcelona and Roskilde just to name a few.
He played, wrote and recorded the Charlie Hebdo magazine X-mas album and he organised the music, played and sang at the paper’s editor Stéphane Charbonniers’ (Charb) funeral in 2015.
One of his songs (Ooh là là Paddy”), sung with Brisa Roché, was recently used in the soundtrack of a major Hollywood movie (“Behaving Badly “directed by Tim Garrick with Selena Gomez).
He played the longest running Gig ever in modern Paris history, 20 packed out years at The Coolin, St Germain before the venue was bought up by Apple to open a store. He has since successfully moved the whole night over to O’Sullivan’s at 63 Avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt where he alternates Sundays with his favorite protegé, Swedish singer Ellen Birath..
He recently played Estragon in a French language production of Waiting for Godot at the Procenium theater, Paris.
