“They have produced one of the best Irish-American songs I have ever heard in ‘No Irish Need Apply’.”

London Celtic Punks (Jan 10, 2024)

“No. 4 Album of 2020”

Gareth Olver, Celtic Punkcast (Jan 3, 2021)

“If you haven’t heard The Muckers (and why not?), they are a very fine Georgia based, Celtic-pub-rock outfit.”

Mustard Finnegan, Shite’n’Onions (Aug 6, 2020)

“The Muckers proved to be one of the most fun Celtic bands I’ve ever seen.”

– TC Costello, London Celtic Punks (July 26, 2020)

“The Muckers – do I ever have connections with this band… Look out for them! It’s a great track and congratulations to the band.” (Played “Buzzards Bay” off “Irish Goodbye”)

Larry Kirwan, Celtic Crush, SiriusXM (June 7, 2020)

“One of the Top 10 bands to watch the next decade.”

Paddy Rock (Jan 9, 2020)

“The Muckers aren’t your stereotypical Irish Rock cover band. No, they are so much more… The chemistry between the five-piece-group is seamless and they are writing together better than ever. The Muckers are a jolly good time, undoubtedly fan favorites, and always a crowd pleaser.”

– Samantha Hutton, Bullet Music (April 24, 2019)

One More Stout – Album of the Year

Gareth Olver, Celtic Punkcast (Dec 15, 2018)

“They prove that fiddles and accordions can rock out just as hard as guitars. These guys always bring their A-game every time they perform, making any show they are a part of highly entertaining and well worth the price of admission.”

Daniel Karasek, Georgia Local Spotlight (July 13, 2018)

“This band is set for the top table of celtic-punk embracing everything that’s great about celtic-punk. Passion and pride in the land of their ancestors but also a willingness to experiment a bit and step away from the confines of Irish folk and inject other cultures and music into what they do. And all the time with a smile plastered across their faces. The obvious fun they have is infectious and if the only thing Celtic-Punk achieves is to make people happy then The Muckers have got a surefire hit on their hands. Get on board before they become massive!”

London Celtic Punks (May 20, 2018)

“If the job description is to deliver the soundtrack for a hearty booze in the pub, the Muckers from Atlanta / USA are a good choice… A good dash of humor and the firm will to have fun are what make the Muckers so special.” (Translated from German) (May 8, 2018)

“Jeff and the boys keep up the good work that they began with their debut album. They take the spirit of The Clancy Brothers and The Pogues and add their own American influences to the mix. Besides, they stay away from the usual overexposed standards and their choice of the songs to cover is spotless. In other words, The Muckers are a fantastic band to party.”

– Waldo Kinksmarkham, Celtic Folk Punk (April 17, 2018)

“Fair to say that ‘One More Stout’ will be hard to top for album of the year.” (Editor’s note: He did, indeed, name it album of the year for 2018!)

Gareth Olver, Celtic Punkcast (April 9, 2018)

“These five page-boy topped performers crash into their next set with all the unbridled energy of a punk rock raucous in the midst of a swooning Irish saloon; meet The Muckers.”

Erin deMesquita, V3 Magazine

“The Muckers manage to honor traditional Irish music while pushing the boundaries and having one heckuva good time.”

Boyd Baker, Good Gracious Show (Jan 16, 2018)

“We’re going to kick it up a notch … The Muckers, my friends, The Muckers.”

Joltin’ Joe, Finnegan’s Wake Live (Jan 16, 2018)

“Their first song fired off with a pungent punk sound that shifted the mood from Mumford to a more Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphys vibe. These guys are definitely going places.”
– Daniel Karasek, Target Audience Magazine (Oct 09, 2017)

“One of the best things we saw at ShamrockFest… they certainly had the crowd dancing from the get go.”
– Kim Allegrezza, AXS (Mar 14, 2017)

“They present their version of intensified, fast folk … While many bands in this sector are simply muckers who specialize in Irish music, The Muckers belong to the other category: they play well-known songs in some unknown way. And who knows what is in The future follows, after all, “The Muckers” is a debut. In summary and for those who do not want to read between the lines – buy the thing!” (translated from German)
– Carsten, Celtic Rock Radio (Feb 10, 2017)

“In short (and aren’t all my reviews) a strong debut. Highlights include a great cover of Jackdaw’s Molly (fiddler Jeff Shaw is a transplanted Buffalo bhoy) and New York Girls. Eddie Conners is another standout and soon to be classic.”
– Mustard Finnegan, Shite’n’Onions (Dec 18, 2016)

“A great knees up of an album with a grand sense of humour and infectiously good fun and well played.”

– London Celtic Punks (Dec 16, 2016)

“Sometimes a band comes along that you listen to it and you go ‘that is fantastic.’ That happens to be the case for the only Irish rock band in Atlanta… It’s the band called The Muckers.”
– Cabrina, Irish Power Hour (Oct 30, 2016)

“Their rendition of “Molly” is simply perfect and “Eddie Connors” is a kicks-ass number, one of the most “punk” moments on the CD. … The Muckers self-titled album is more than a St. Patrick’s Day CD.”
– Celtic-Folk-Punk (Oct 20, 2016)

“Top 10 Must-see shows at Dragon Con 2016 ‘If you like Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphys, you don’t want to miss this show.’”
