Paddy Noonan Band
Since the 1960’s, the name Paddy Noonan has been synonymous with Irish music. This accomplished accordionist has established a reputation for delighting audiences all around the globe, not only with his own talents, but also as a director and promoter of top class entertainment.
Paddy discovered music as his first love shortly after arriving in New York City from County Cork at the age of 12. It has been through his gift of music that Paddy has endeared himself to audiences of all ethnic backgrounds, winning international stardom for four decades.
After breaking into the cabaret scene at the ripe old age of 16, Paddy later went on to gain popularity by playing at the New York City Center Ballroom, then the dancing “Mecca” for Irish music lovers during the 50’s and early 60’s.
Those who have seen Paddy and his all star line-up in action know that they’re in for a lively performance. One that will keep their toes tappin’, hands clappin’ and a smile on each and every face! Paddy’s own warmth and personal charisma have won him a unique rapport with his audiences. They share the pure joy and tireless energy speaking through his music and magic is made!
Paddy often does solo presentations offering an international program of Happy Music, Sing-a-longs and an enjoyable session of ‘Story Telling” based on the humor and observations collected in his years of entertaining & traveling near and far.
Will he ever slow down? When asked about his retirement, with a twinkle in his eye he’ll tell you that “when someone calls and asks me to play at their wedding, and mentions that I played at their grandparents’ wedding, I think then it will be time to put away the accordion!”
