The Black Donnellys
The Black Donnellys are a highly regarded and Guinness World Record-breaking band from Dublin, Ireland. Currently based in Las Vegas, the Black Donnellys are resident musicians at Rí Rá Irish Pub at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. The band consists of award-winning singer-songwriter Dave Rooney and Guinness World Record-breaking guitarist Dave Browne.
The Black Donnellys, a popular Irish musical duo, are in a race against time to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records by performing 60 concerts in all 50 states in only 40 days. Along the cross-country trip filled with canceled flights, flat tires and impromptu fundraisers to raise enough just to keep the tour going, the film’s theme—examining the pursuit of the American dream and the power of music to connect us all—comes shining through.
