Get Hooked on Stephanie in this YouTube music video and Catch it Performed Live in Los Angeles at the Redwood Bar

Stephanie Music Video Screenshot

After following Brian McShea and the Sidemen, I’ve always wanted to see them live, which is why I’m so excited that they’re coming to the Redwood Bar in Los Angeles on July 31st! I heard that the Redwood Bar is pirate themed, I wonder if I should get dressed up to fit in? I think it would be really unique and fun place for Brian McShea and the Sidemen to perform.

I’m most looking forward to hearing them play their new EP, “Real People, Not Actors” live for the first time! The EP was only released a few weeks ago and I’m loving every song on it, especially “Stephanie!” I love how the song builds up progressively to a loud and catchy tune! This is the song I use to show people when I tell people about Brian McShea. I really think their music video for “Stephanie” on YouTube is really fun and fits the song well, while also showing us what Brian McShea and the Sidemen are really about!
