Episode 31C: Pat O’Neill

Pat O’Neill has been playing solo acoustic for the better part of the year, so it caught most of the crowd off-guard when he showed up with a full band to open for a sold-out Big Dipper show with Rocky Votolato and Lucero. His cousins Riley Long (ex-Mylestone) and Kevin Long (ex-Seattlite originally from The Spoke) accompanied him on drums and bass, respectively. They added a fuller sound that’s closer to what you can expect from his upcoming solo album “Pictures of Plastic Horses,” which features Riley on drums for eight of the 10 tracks. Also be on the lookout for shows by singer-songwriter Kevin Long, whose primary instrument is guitar. O’Neill’s closing song, “Don’t Bother With Me,” was outstanding. As you’re listening, keep in mind O’Neill is 17 years old. This is “The Kid.”
