In what was America’s biggest musical-television ratings smash since Glee, the Cycle of America team threw a musical fundraiser in Austintown, Ohio that was captured by two local TV news crews.
O’Donold’s Irish Pub kindly let Rob “Yossarian Lives” Shiels from Irish band Brazen Lungs play a set to raise money for the Livestrong Foundation. Watch the video to see him and young troubadour Mark Leonard in action!
Plus, stay tuned to the end to witness a sartorial error on the part of the COA’s wardrobe department.
$190 was raised last night in Patrick’s Irish pub in St. Peter, Minnesota. Talented singer/songwriter Rob Shiels of Brazen Lungs (coincidentally, also of Cycle of America 2010) performed a varied musical set and entertained the patrons of Patrick’s.
The wonderful staff went out of their way to help us. They loaned us a guitar and donated $2 from every pint of guinness bought that night. They even fed and watered us!
A huge thank you to John Mayer the owner, Brian the manager, Mathias, and the rest of the staff at Patrick’s. You guys are awesome!

Thank you to all who attended the Cycle of America 2010 Goodbye Party! Three wonderful Irish bands – Radio Kaliningrad, Chayka and Brazen Lungs – wowed the audience at Whelan’s last Sunday. Circa 10 o’clock the whole CoA2010 Team took to the stage, and Mark delivered a heartfelt Thank You speech to the rapt audience.
