Houston's newest Irish band combines flute, fiddle, accordion, vocals, and guitar for a vibrant rendition of the energetic traditional dance music and songs of Ireland.

After many years of playing sessions together, the band members realized they share the same mindset, approach, and love for traditional Irish music. Thus they have created a band that remains true to tradition, yet presents the music in a creative and entertaining manner.
The Jig is Up! features the flute playing of Larry Mallette, whose 20 years in the tradition has made him the band's resident musical historian. 

The band's fantastic fiddle player, Diehl Moran, provides both grace and drive to the music. Judd Heartsill's pulsive accordion and melodeon playing fills out the group's big sound and helps to supply the "nyah" in the dance tunes. 

They are joined by Matt Lewis, who solidifies the arrangements with his rhythmic guitar playing and lends harmonies to enhance the vocals. Robert Shaddox, with his clear tenor voice, is the band's main vocalist and accompanies many tune sets with the bodhrán (Irish frame drum).
