Chris Smith/Scott Doherty present ROCKIN’ ROAD TO DUBLIN

ROCKIN’ ROAD TO DUBLIN is the new sensation changing the Irish Dance world. A fusion of rock and Irish, ROCKIN’ ROAD TO DUBLIN combines the best of both worlds to thrust Irish Dance back into the spotlight.  This stylish, can’t miss spectacle is the perfect balance between concert and stage show. “This isn’t your typical Irish dance show,” explains Smith (The American Rogues), “it combines the magic of Broadway and the energy of a rock show with the excitement of Irish dance.   We’ve taken traditional Irish tunes and updated them to make the entire evening more dynamic and powerful.  It has enough of the tradition people love, but it’s different enough that they will never look back!”  Smith has gathered an elite class of musicians to perform in the ROCKIN’ ROAD TO DUBLIN band: Marc Malsegna (award-winning guitartist), Kelly Mills (five-time winner of the Drum Corps and Percussion World Championships), Mike Moore (Busch Gardens and Kings Dominion), Joe Schermann (Guys and Dolls, White Christmas, Grease, Smokey Joe’s Café and Shout), and Corey Walden (The American Rogues, and founder of The Suzuki School of Milford).

“It’s truly the music that gets the audience on their feet,” insists Doherty (Riverdance and Lord of the Dance), who has worked his own magic choreographing the critically acclaimed show. “We’ve created this mashup of awesome Irish everything with rock and roll.  It’s a high energy concert mixed in with an Irish dance show.”  The 2009 Men’s World Champion of Irish Dance, Doherty made his professional debut in 2005 with the North American tour of Riverdance, and since has toured the world with that show, as well as Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance.

For ROCKIN’ ROAD TO DUBLIN, Doherty chose three-time international Irish dance champion Ashley Smith to be his lead female dancer. On stage since the age of 3, at 16, Ashley was crowned the World Irish Step Dancing Champion in Belfast in 2004 — making her the youngest American female ever to win the world title at that time. A top-30 female finalist on the hit TV show “So You Think You Can Dance,” Ashley was also a featured dancer on the Oscar-nominated film Silver Linings Playbook.

Rounding out the cast are other well-known Irish dancers, including, Mark Chichester (Lord of the Dance), Declan Crowley (West Side Story: Mashup), Bernadette Devereaux (Lord of the Dance), Patrick Holland (Cherish the Ladies), Billy Kanaly (Riverdance), Erika Nielsen (Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games), world champion Tyler Schwartz (Celtic Fyre) and Mairéad Stillson (Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games).
