After playing in rock bands in Ireland in the 60s, Willie came to America
in the early 70s to visit his brother, Louie.
Willie’s original plan was to go to the GI camps in West Germany after
he visited Louie because that is where the American musicians were
going. God had a different plan. One night at Morley & McGovern’s Pub
in Roselle Park, New Jersey, he met Bev Burke who was “studying” at
the bar for her nursing exams.
The rest is history as Bev and Willie have been married over 43 years.
Their family of two is now a family of twelve.
Willie’s first gigs in America were in his brother’s bar, Lynch’s Emerald
Pub in Elizabeth, NJ.
Since then, the Willie Lynch Band has played to thousands and
thousands of audiences as they keep the Irish tradition alive.
Willie says that if he was to get paid in joy - the joy he brings to the
crowds and the joy he receives from playing with the band - he would
be a billionaire. The magic of the band is that every gig is a great time
for all ages!
