The LeftOvers History:
The LeftOvers have captivated audiences around Western New York for over five years. The band’s strong emphasis on Irish rebel songs, witty stage banter and pure showmanship makes them unique among the area’s numerous Celtic bands.
The LeftOvers are made up of Jerry Shea, Pat Gerken, Elizabeth Shea and Ryan Young. Their talents were brought together in 2001 when Jerry and Pat were asked to entertain the customers on St. Patrick’s Day at a friend’s establishment, Hoak’s Armor Inn. Jerry put together words and music of about 30 suitable songs for the night. He, his daughter Elizabeth, and Pat arranged and practiced the songs for about six weeks. In the winter of 2004 the LeftOvers added piper and vocalist Ryan Young, making the band complete.
Where does the name of the band come in, you ask? Well, the band is so named because when asked how they would be announced on that fateful night in March, they realized “The LeftOvers” would be a perfect fit because they were all that were left to entertain that night. What was supposed to be a one-night stand continued on for the next twelve years. The LeftOvers have since released four CDs, which include some original songs. They have traveled all over WNY playing their way into the hearts of the people.
The LeftOvers have had the pleasure of playing all over Western New York, and for all type of establishments and functions. The band loves to perform, so it’s always a welcome invite when they’re asked to play at benefits, private parties, pubs and festivals.
