Kathy Dolan

Vocals, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Accordian, Violin & Tin-Whistle
Kathy is a multi-talented award winning musician and songstress. A published Song writer and Registered Nurse by trade, she has written and performed music her entire life. Her vocal prowess is powerful and her fluency in multiple instruments is invaluable to the band. From Joplin to Clarkson, Kathy brings to life all of todays superstars. Her voice rounds out the vocal stylings of the band and her ability on her traditional instruments continues to make Shannon Breeze one of New York’s most versatile Irish Rock band's.


The Shannon Breeze was founded  by siblings Kathy and Martin Dolan over 15 years ago. Since that time the band has gone from a small group of amateur musicians to a band of professional songsmiths. They can play just about anything and usually do, night after night. Just when you think you know what is coming up next, they'll throw you a curve that will have you reeling, but screaming for more. The Shannon Breeze have played hundreds and hundreds of weddings, dances, festivals, bars and clubs and have been asked back without fail. They can keep any crowd dancing and singing along all night or keep them sitting quietly in awe of their musicianship.

The Shannon Breeze Band is available for weddings, bars, clubs or any special event that requires great music!

Martin Dolan

Vocals & Keyboards
Marty's lower tenor vocals are complemented by his percussive keyboard style, filling out the male lead vocal aspect of the band and adding punch in the rhythm section. Marty has been performing Irish and American music since he was a child. He recently completed a tour of the U.S. and Canada with the Dublin City Ramblers. A full-time law enforcement officer, he is the husband of Mary, and proud father of Conor and Brian.

Jon Bivona

Lead Guitar & Vocals
Our Lead Guitarist, Jon, is the husband of The Dolan Family's life-long friend, Sheila McGann. Jon's blazing lead guitar style is the key to the band's surprisingly hard-edged rock and roll side. He is a full-time guitar teacher on Long Island and has performed with artists such as Mark Wood and The Trans-Siberian Orchestra. He has also done recordings for ESPN and numerous other television networks.

Billy Onesios

Drums and Vocals
Our Drummer, Billy "O", is the newest member of Shannon Breeze and has jumped right in with both feet. He has been playing professionally for well over 20 years with countless musicians. He has managed to overcome his innate shyness (just kidding) and has become the life of the party for The Shannon Breeze and their fans.
