Weese, Paddy! formed in the winter of 2012. Band members Chris Brill and Matty "Gangbang" Amend sought out members to make this band happen. The original lineup consisted of Shane "Face" Hobensack on Guitar, Chris Brill on Vox and banjo, Trevor Scott on Drums, and Matty Gangbang on Bass. The lineup soon changed when the band tried to be something bigger than just a garage jam band. At the end of December, Weese, Paddy! added another member, Ryan Williams , who would be the lead vocalist of the band. In January of 2013, Karly "McPreggers" Klein joined as another lead/ backing vocalist to Ryan Williams. Instruments and members shifted around as Weese, Paddy! added one more player: Chris "Drunkbowski" on guitar. When there was need for a second guitarist to bring about, Chris Brill jumped on guitar, as Matt Violin , whose nickname sucks right now but their working on it, joined as Weese, Paddy!'s fiddle player, ultimately completing their sound. By February 2013 , Weese, Paddy! had already started making a name for themselves when they joined and signed with the Music Label and Distribution company known as UNIR1 Records. Weese, Paddy! 's music had been played on multiple occasions on UNIR1 international radio station. Currently, Weese, Paddy! is working on their brand new album , (the name is unknown at this time) , at a studio in Chalfont, PA known as Everloft Studios.

Weese, Paddy! has been asked to play a bunch of future shows with the Fighting Jamesons , for one. The Jamesons rocked the house last weekend, and itd be killer for the two bands to join together and play kick ass , fun filled shows. The intensity was high, the beer consumed, and what wasn't drunk was on the floor from the pit.
The Trocadero booking agent also loved Weese, Paddy! when they played that night as well. The general consensus of all the workers and concert attendees was that they really set the stage for the Jamesons that night. Weese, Paddy! is now able to book the trocadero regularly after gaining a whole new respect from the popular Philadelphia venue.
Though all this is in the works, there was more news when Weese, Paddy! met with a sound guy from multiple venues. He was looking to book both us and the Jamesons for future events , including possibly the idea of playing the Irish Festival at the Festival Pier at Penns Landing.
This is all exciting news, and hopefully a start to an exciting future.
