Supporting the Dropkick Murphys!!!
Ken Casey, a day of Golf and an evening of photographs and music.
What would you do if you were asked to look after the front man from one of the worlds most loved bands?
Of course you’d be crazy not to jump at the chance! Time to take a wee day off from the Lairds office.
Not only is Ken a Golfing fanatic, he is also a die hard fan of arguably the best Ice Hockey team on the Planet!!! The Boston Bruins!
So making sure he was well catered for was just the thing to do. From a round of golf at the Worlds best Golf course the Royal Troon, to a wee follow up 18 holes at the Trump Turnberry plus a good feed, I then personally chauffeured them to their gig in Glasgow, and on time I mite add.
No mean feat supporting the Dropkick Murphys on a Scottish bank holiday!
I realised when Ken had decided on a round at Trump Turnberry that it was a bank holiday weekend and getting from Turnberry to Glasgow would be a nightmare far less getting there in time for the curtain going up at the venue.
I made sure to arrange to pick Ken and his colleagues up and get them up to the venue in time. I met his tour manager, his band and his crew! The tour manager literally picked me up and gave me a hug!!! He thanked me for getting Ken to the gig on time. We were cutting it fine. A Great bunch of guys!
Somehow the guys ferried me into the venue and I found myself with an Access All Areas pass and had an absolute blast on stage and back stage with the guys. My camera nearly melted down with the amount of photos I took!
So a great day, with a world famous front man and his band. I’d do it again tomorrow!
