February 22, 2017

(Salisbury, MA) —The end of the rainbow leads straight to Salisbury Beach with St. Patrick’s Day celebrations that are pots of gold in your own backyard.
What better way to celebrate upcoming St. Patrick’s Day than at the 2nd Annual Blarney Bash featuring Joshua Tree on Saturday, March 11th.  As the nation’s premier tribute to U2, they capture the look, feel and sound of one of the world’s most popular rock bands that hail from Dublin, Ireland.  Unique to Joshua Tree is their dedication to the entire U2 songbook as well as reproducing the distinct sound of U2 by playing each song with the same intensity and emotion.  This New England-based band, winner of Boston Music Awards 2008 best tribute act, covers all phases of U2 and delivers all of the fan favorites, sure to get you in the St. Patrick’s Day spirit.
If you’re looking for something special to do on St. Patrick’s Day itself, look no further than Blue Ocean Music Hall as .38 Special takes the stage. After more than three decades together, platinum recording artists .38 Special continue to bring their signature blast of Southern Rock.  Their arena-rock pop smashes are too many to list but fan-favorites include, “Hold On Loosely,” “Rockin’ Into the Night,” “Caught Up in You,” “Fantasy Girl,” “Back Where You Belong,” “Second Chance,” and more – Timeless hits that remain radio staples and are immediately recognizable from the first opening chord.
Offering music-lovers the opportunity to see nationally acclaimed artists up-close in an intimate setting located directly on the ocean, Blue Ocean Music Hall is a year-round live performance venue where most seats are within 50 feet of the stage.  Opened in November 2009, the 500-seat/700 Standing Room Only concert hall features the “best of the best” in sound and lighting quality with an innovative Meyer Sound system and Chauvet Professional digital lighting gear.
Full band bios and hi-res photos are available; please email  To schedule artist interviews, concert reviews or press/photo passes, please contact Kathy Aiello at or 978.764.3924.
