Pat Foley's History
Pat has performed over 5,000 shows during his 20-year career. He has performed for and captured audiences from New England to the Mid-West. Pat has performed over 250 shows a year since 1989. With a songlist of more than 600 cover songs it gave him a great base to build on his own songwriting skills, it also polished him into being an energetic and passionate entity on stage. An audience can't help but be effected by his chameleon-like stage presence and versatality. (You’ll never see him sitting on a stool through a show!)
His solo career and performances with his band have led to some great opening acts and exposure.
