The Black Donnellys

The Black Donnellys is a highly-regarded and Guinness World Record-breaking band from Dublin. Currently based in Las Vegas, The Black Donnellys are resident musicians at Rí Rá Irish Pub at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, located on the infamous Las Vegas Strip. The band consists of award-winning singer/songwriter Dave Rooney, and Guinness World Record-breaking guitarist Dave Browne.

Since arriving in America just under five years ago, The Black Donnellys have established a great fan base throughout the United States with their energetic live performances.

Last year, they embarked on a quest to set a Guinness World Record playing 60 shows in ALL 50 states in just 40 days! Racing against the clock, they examine the pursuit of the American Dream from an immigrant’s perspective and how music connects us all.

This trip is the subject of a new movie: An Irish Story: This Is My Home.

The Black Donnellys use MJC Ironworks strings exclusively.
