All Ages Event

The Devil’s Brigade (Formerly: The American Rogues)

Thursday, May 16
Doors: 7pm // Show: 8pm
$27 to $35


THE DEVIL’S BRIGADE, formally known as the First Special Service Force, was a highly decorated Canadian/American commando unit in WWII. Their legendary heroism struck fear into the hearts of Nazis and their legacy can be traced directly to the Canadian Special Operations Regiment and Green Berets.  The American Rogues have long supported Veterans and by becoming THE DEVIL’S BRIGADE we seek to not only honour those who serve but also reflect our own Canadian/American identity.

Drawing favourable comparisons to Wolfstone, Afro Celt Sound System, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra and consistently providing performances from Grade 1 bagpipers and other world class musicians this high-energy Canadian/American group has electrified audiences on three continents for years. 
 They have expanded their ever-growing family of fans at music festivals, theatres, military bases, weddings, memorial ceremonies, corporate events, and more.  This has even included shows with world-renowned violinist/composers Lindsey Stirling and Alison Krauss, as well as airplay on TV and radio, and shows at non-Celtic venues such as the World Music Festival in Quebec where they have both kicked off and closed the 6 day event to widespread acclaim (they’ve been asked to play this festival 10 years in a row and counting). 
 In 2021 they charted at #12 in the world for their rendition of “The Boondock Saints Theme”, and #3 and #7 in North America for their “Boondock Saints Theme” and “The Gael from Last of the Mohicans”.  In 2017 they became the St. Paddy’s Band of Rogers radio stations nationwide when they recorded Celtic versions of contemporary songs for airplay, 2018 saw them appear at festivals in Scotland (including their appearance as the first international act at the Cowal Highland Gathering, one of the largest Celtic events in the world), and 2019 saw them headline in Abu Dhabi and at the Greg Frewin Theatre in Niagara Falls, and sell out the Harbourfront Centre Theatre in Toronto with Japanese taiko group, Nagata Shachu.  

 Renowned for their musical skill, quick wit, compelling storytelling, and engaging stage show THE DEVIL’S BRIGADE have mastered the art of creating an immediate connection with audiences.  They are known for their epic, multi-instrumental sound that crosses the musical landscape to include jigs, reels, hornpipes, ballads, originals, covers, soundtracks, patriotic and military music, Irish foot-stompers and more.  The DEVIL’S BRIGADE are fast becoming a household name with music lovers around the world, loved by young and old of all backgrounds.
