The Stubby Shillelaghs 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, the owner of Patrick's Pub in Greeley Co. was looking for
an act to play his Halloween show. He took a chance on the as-yet unproven Stubbies. The result was a resounding success which led to the band being offered a 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. 2012 saw
the release of two Stubbies Albums, their studio album “Whiskey Business” and their first live album “Parental Advisory Live!”. The new year brings new opportunities for the Stubbies including a number of festivals and conventions, as well as the hope to release their next Studio album in addition to several more music videos
and a lot of other fun things that are sure to folk some faces.
