Eamonn Ryan and his band

That’s the tagline for the Eamonn Ryan Band, whose frontman is Verona dad Eamonn Ryan. He is a first-generation American of Irish descent, but what his band performs at any given gig could just as easily be “Back In The USSR” as the “Hills of Tipperary”. (You can listen to a snippet of the latter on the band’s Web site.)

And though  Saint Patrick’s day is over, the celebrations of all things Irish aren’t: The Eamonn Ryan Band will be performing at the Grasshopper Too in Wayne this Saturday, March 20, from noon until 5 p.m.  This is a family-friendly venue, with food for all ages and no cover charge.
