It has been a while since we sang along with our friends from the Dropkick Murphys here in Montana. But good news arrived saying that they have put Montana on their list of places they are stopping on their upcoming "Saint Patrick's Day Tour."

Just recently a fond memory of ours popped up on Facebook. A video of the day that Dropkick welcomed fans and loyal rock radio listeners backstage, at the old Wilma Theater, for an intimate performance of their new song they chose to release for the holidays.

For yours truly, I can never forget the secret holiday performance that the Dropkick Murphys gave us backstage at the Wilma in 2012. Now, this was before the Wilma was purchased and remodeled by Logjam Presents. The Dropkick Murphys invited a number of lucky Blaze listeners backstage for an ice-cold beer and a special performance. Ken Casey and Al greeted us at the door with handshakes and a bottle of Budweiser. After a short BS session with the band, Ken and Al asked us if we would like to hear their new Christmas song. Of course, we did, and they wasted no time. Using a piano, an accordion, a guitar, and a mandolin, they gave us a performance that is usually only reserved for close friends and family.

It truly was a special moment. As the holidays are upon us, we felt it is only fitting that we share with everyone that special moment from backstage at the Wilma.
