Editorial Reviews

Overture and beginners please... Strike up the band... Stand by for Celtic Thunder... and It s Entertainment . This stylish and high energy trip through some of the great songs of the last 30 years is pure showbiz! It is a tribute from Celtic Thunder to the legacy they have inherited from the great entertainers of the past, and a mark of how far they themselves have travelled as performers, in a few short years. It evokes an era of big bands and boulevards, top hats and tails and singing and dancin in the rain! It makes for irresistible listening as the principals from this generation pay their respects to the stars of an earlier time. In the true tradition of variety the music covers a mix of styles, of songs and of singers, as the lads salute their musical heroes- from Fred Astaire to Neil Diamond, from Jim Croce to Chicago, from Michael Buble to The Beach Boys!
Each member features with two songs, one a serious workout, the other a bit of pure fun and a chance to let the hair down! These lighter choices have George stomping around to The Proclaimer s My Life With You , while Ryan takes on the persona of a Chicago gangster with Bad, Bad Leroy Brown . Keith slips right into character with a Surfer Medley and Damian becomes a bit of a boulevardier with Standing On The Corner . Paul steps up to the plate as an accomplished song and dance man with the rooty-tooty Doo Wacka Doo , specially written by Phil Coulter. One big surprise package is guitarist Neil who not only joins Ryan and Keith in a haunting, close harmony version of Leonard Cohen s Hallelujah but also delivers a superb, soulful solo on the Disney classic When You Wish Upon A Star . The show is rounded off by a couple of ensemble numbers, featuring all six singers, the perennial Amazing Grace and U2 s anthemic Still Haven t Found What I m Looking For . All in all, this is an inspired celebration of wonderful songs and great singers, an uplifting feel-good package that is the perfect antidote to the recession blues!

I've heard many say they are disappointed with the direction they feel Celtic Thunder is going with the release of It's Entertainment. I say drop all the notions of what you think Celtic Thunder is or should be and embrace this small step in the journey. Change, variation, mixing things up; it is all necessary for growth. Give it a chance and I believe you will be pleasantly surprised. These men have real, raw talent and it shines brighter then ever here!

Damian wows again with his continued vocal maturity and growth, delivering a solid, flawless version of Home. With Standing On The Corner his impish, charming side comes to the front in a playful performance that leaves you smiling.

Paul puts aside the powerhouse ballads for a bit of lighter fare. He enchants with Doo Whacka Doo a rollicking tribute to the good old songs of yesterday, and compels us to dance with the alluring, flirty Sway.

Keith starts out with Hard to Say I'm Sorry which, while pleasant and romantic, does not do his voice or ability justice. When he cuts loose with Surfer Medley it is Keith at his best! It's funky, fun and free, with rip-snorting guitar playing that just makes you want to get down and boogie!

Ryan's Bad Bad Leroy Brown is entertaining and suits his voice but it's in Everything I Do that he really stands out. He puts perfect emotion and passion into the song and the delivery is silky smooth and believable.

George is as steady and dependable as ever. Hello Again showcases his softer, mellower side while Life With You is a lively, lighthearted diversion from his usual ballads.

Neil proves with When You Wish Upon a Star that he is more then an all-star musician, he is a brilliant vocalist as well.

It's Entertainment! Although I've been a fan of Celtic Thunder since the very beginning, I was rather skeptical of this album, It's Entertainment. However, I was blown away by how good it was! Guitarist and back-up vocalist Neil Byrne makes two guest appearances in Hallelujah and Amazing Grace, in addition to his own solo song, When You Wish Upon A Star. Damian McGinty shows that he's growing up with Home, and also in the song Standing On The Corner. George Donaldson wows the crowd in Life With You, a song similar in theme to I'm Gonna Be(500 Miles), and with the softer love song, Hello Again.

There is a guest appearance by Charley Bird covering Cher's Just Like Jesse James, which is followed by Keith singing Hard to Say I'm Sorry for a small story plot. Keith also sings the sassy Surfer Medley, a tribute to one of his favorite past times. Ryan Kelly re-visits his old persona that sang That's A Woman and Heartbreaker with Bad Bad Leroy Brown. However, he also exhibited the side of his persona that sang Every Breath You Take with Everything I Do(I Do It For You).

Paul Byrom sings the original Doo Wacka Doo, and covers Michael Bublé's Sway, putting his own flair on both. Celtic Thunder's acappella singing of Amazing Grace(a group song) will blow you way; their harmony is simply amazing! I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For is their other group song. It's a fun and upbeat and it'll get stuck in your head(as all good songs should). This is definitely an album to add to your collection!

Their best singing to date! Wonderful melody, harmony, style and good fun!

So happy to hear Neil Byrne sing in this CD. He's got the voice of an angel.
More Neil in the future I hope!!!!

Received our It's Entertainment DVD & CD in the middle of the NE snowstorm and it brightened our day. Great performance and can't wait for their next show in our area. Highly recommend both.

I love Celtic Thunder and have ever since I stumbled on the first show when it aired on public television. I have been to both of their concerts here in the Portland, OR and own all of the DVD's and CD's. And I have to say It's Entertainment is wonderful...........fun, energetic, great music and the extras on the DVD are terrific. As individual performers and as a group they have just gotten better and better, I can't recommend them enough. Now I can't wait for the It's Entertainment concert. It's Entertainment!

The product description of It's Entertainment is spot on. What you get here is an enthusiastic collection of songs from some of their own musical influences and favorite artists. You can tell that they've had a blast doing their own take on music that speaks to them.
You might see this as a departure from what you'd expect from a "Celtic" group, but as the producer behind the group has described them as a fresh take on the modern Celtic man, I feel it makes perfect sense to take a moment and look at the songs they listen to and celebrate. What better way to do so than to make them their own?
The album as whole is a wonderful collection of fun songs, songs that touch the heart, and songs that make you smile and reminisce (or in my case, imagine life from decades prior to my birth).
For Damian, "Home" is a fantastic choice. Knowing that he is a Michael Buble fan makes hearing him sing it even more special, but he certainly delivers! This more mature song really gives his talent the opportunity to shine while letting him prove that he has grown up a bit since we first encountered him.
Keith gets to do another popular ballad on this CD, but it's the "Surfer Medley" that makes me smile. Now, why would a young Irish man sing a compilation of popular surfing songs? It's a lifestyle choice, you might say, but that little fact makes it a ton of fun to hear Keith sing some of the most popular hits from this genre.
For Ryan, "Bad Bad Leroy Brown" is just a perfect choice. The animation in his voice is enough to give this upbeat classic plenty of life! If you think it can't get any better, pop in the corresponding DVD, though, and just watch him bring the lyrics to life.
