DeKALB – One of the area’s favorite national musical acts is back in DeKalb for the 11th straight year, as Gaelic Storm brings its high energy, Celtic-inspired music to the Egyptian Theatre on Saturday.

The all-ages show is always a highlight on the theater’s calendar and attracts fans from across the region.

The band’s live shows date back to the mid-1990s, when Gaelic Storm kicked off its career as a pub band in Santa Monica, California.

By the end of the decade, the musicians had appeared in the blockbuster film “Titanic” (where they performed “Irish Party in Third Class”) and laid the groundwork for a career that would eventually find them topping the Billboard World Chart five times, making appearances at mainstream music festivals such as Summerfest, Telluride and the Rock Boat cruise, and regularly headlining the largest Irish Festivals across the country. The band’s songs mix Celtic traditions with something new and unexpected.

Ticket prices range from $32 to $75. Tickets can be purchased at the Egyptian Theatre box office during box office hours – 3 to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – online at www.egyptiantheatre.org or by calling the box office at 815-758-1225.

The Egyptian Theatre, at 135 N. Second St. in downtown DeKalb, is owned and operated by Preservation of Egyptian Theatre Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
