The Roundabouts

Cleveland's Kids Irish Trad Band

Playing Tunes at the Pub

We're The Roundabouts

The Roundabouts bring a rich traditional sound to the kitchens, pubs and backyards of Cleveland, Ohio! They are a group of kids who have come together to share in a passion for keeping the important traditions of their heritage alive.

The Roundabouts are available for parties, weddings, funerals, birthdays, showers, family friendly pub events, festivals and more. They are also available to lead in session play at any venue.

Their style meshes the traditional music of Ireland with a bit of spunk from their souls blending a unique sound that holds true to the traditions with a fresh young twist.

In addition to the trad you will hear stories told in the Irish style as passed on from generation to generation, songs and dance. The ability of The Roundabouts to tailor any performance to the crowds sets them apart from your typical kids band.

The Roundabouts is made up of a group of kids from Cleveland who started a house session specifically for kids to have the opportunity to play together. They have since become friends as well as bandmates. If you listen closely you will hear how their playing together reflects their deep connections to each other through the music, heritage, friendships and just plain being kids!

Have you ever been stuck in a Roundabout while driving around? It can be quite maddening to go in circles, around and around. It is practically the definition of Insanity to keep driving your car in the same direction trying to find the correct way to go. What exactly is Insanity? "Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result"is how we define Insanity. Well, we are a little bit crazy, maybe even slightly insane because after all we enjoy playing Traditional Irish Tunes over and over and over again for a crowd with no expectation except sheer joy for our audience! We hope you will soon have a chance to have a listen to our trad tunes as well as original tunes composed by us!

We are but six
Happy to play
Come out tonight
We invite you to stay

Pull up a stool
Sit down for a listen
For it's tunes you'll hear
The best of the tradition

So gather 'Round
The music's about to start
You'll be entertained
As we play with all our heart

For we're The Roundabouts
Our sound is unique
As we play for you
Music so sweet

We're The Roundabouts
And we're happy to play
We'll share our music all night and all day

For it's in our blood
Our souls so deep
The tunes you'll hear
As you jump up to dance on two feet!
