The band began in 2010 when long-time friends Andrew Mithun, Ryan Knaub, and Shaughnessy McDaniel decided to start “The Stubby Shillelaghs” as a small side project. In October of 2010 “Patrick’s Pub” owner Greg Farnsworth, looking for an act to play his Halloween show, took a chance on the as-yet-unproven Stubbies. The result was a resounding success which led to the band’s weekly show, “Stubby Tuesdays”. They recorded and released their first self-produced album “Stubbies Assemble!” on St. Patrick’s Day of 2011. Following this, there was an expansion into Denver and other parts of Colorado. The band has recently released their 2nd studio album “Whiskey Business” and their first live album “Parental Advisory Live!” and is looking forward to the many opportunities that have started to spring up around them.
