The Langer's Ball is a Steampunk Irish Punk Rock band from St. Paul, MN. They play amped up Irish traditional songs and tunes as well as original material. "Showing no signs of stopping or slowing down…put your best dancing shoes on because The Langer’s Ball are in town and there’s no excuse for sitting down. (TLB) are swigging Jameson’s and writing some of the best Celtic punk you may ever listen to" - SupprotUrScene.com (Aug 03, 2012)
Michael Sturm (guitar, mandolin & vocals) and Hannah Rediske (accordion & penny whistle) have recorded 3 albums; "As I Roved Out" (2008) "Ships are Sailing" (2009) and "LIVE: Drunk, Sick, Tired" (2011).
In 2012, they teamed up with Drew Miller (bass), Trevor Jurgens (lead guitarist) and Derek Jaimes (drums) to create a raucous wall of high-energy Celtic sound. The band's first CD together, "The Devil or The Barrel" was released on July, 2012. "‘The Devil or The Barrel’ finds The Langer’s Ball taking it to the next level and is one of the world’s best damn Celtic Rock releases" - DJ John Bowles, PaddyRock.com (Aug 30, 2012)
2013 brought a line-up change as Trevor left the band and TLB teamed up with Danny McDermott. The band is currently touring. They are performaing at a variety of Festivals around the US and working on a few singles and a Steampunk inspired music video for their original song "Whiskey Chaser".
