O'Malley Prepares to March Some More


O'Malley's March, the governor's semi-retired Celtic rock band, won't be hanging it up for good anytime soon.

The band has two concerts planned the night of Nov. 21 at the historic Avalon Theatre in Easton. And Tuesday morning, the Rams Head in Annapolis said it had landed Gov. Martin O'Malley's band Dec. 20 (in an announcement that also included newly booked shows by Keb' Mo' and Sonny Landreth).

"Yeah, we have a couple of jobs," O'Malley confirmed in an interview Tuesday morning after a gubernatorial event in Glen Burnie. "I guess they're near enough to the holidays that we felt free to do them. It will be good to play again."

The band has been dormant since July, when it joined the Chesapeake Orchestra in Southern Maryland at the end of a day of O'Malley doing gubernatorial events in the region.

O'Malley sings and plays guitar in the seven-piece band, which opponents tried to turn into an issue during the 2006 election, suggesting that it detracted from his gravitas. The band's fifth CD, Galway Races, was released in March.
