Bog Iron powers two St. Paddy’s shows in Monterey.

Double Shot: On March 17, John Michael (top left) and Bog Iron hit happy hour at London Bridge, then head for Jose’s.

Vocalist John Michael gets back to his roots with Bog Iron. A singer in the local rock band Mercy and in San Francisco's D.B. Walker Band, Michael, who was born in Ireland, decided to embark on a project that's equal parts Celtic and hard rock. His 2008 record Echoes From the Cliffs of Mohr includes takes on Irish chesnuts like "Danny Boy" and "Whiskey in the Jar."
