WASHINGTON (AP) - Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley's Celtic rock band had a gig at the White House.

O'Malley and his band, O'Malley's March, played in the East Room on Tuesday night.

The performance was part of a St. Patrick's Day reception honoring Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny.

O'Malley was more active in his band when he was Baltimore's mayor. However, he still gets the group together for occasional performances.

Check out the band performing in 2009 at The Avalon Theater in Easton, Md.:
