About F&V

FAST & VENGEFULLY is a high-energy band that plays traditional and modern Irish tunes.We’re based in the San Francisco Bay Area and are a hit at pubs, picnics, parties, and more.

The band features four accomplished, professional musicians who share a love of good, foot-tappin’ Irish music. Belinda Salvidge plays a mean fiddle, Eric Swihart (formerly of Stung) rocks the bass, Derek Santos (Space Monkey Gangstas) on drums, and Timmy G is the master of guitar and vocals.

We play:

  • jigs and reels (such as ‘Drowsy Maggie’ and ‘Irish Washer Woman’)
  • folk songs (like ‘the Fields of Athenry and ‘Danny Boy’)
  • modern Irish tunes (from The Pogues, the Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, to U2 and Van Morrison)
  • plus our own, original material!

Here’s a little something we filmed at a recent Sunday session:
