Grand Marshal

Bobby Byrne, whose paternal grandparents were from County Louth and County Cork, Ireland,  grew up in Bayonne, NJ. He is the son of Irish-American bandleader, Jimmy Byrne, and Scottish immigrant, Margaret McIver, who came to America at the age of eight. Margaret was as musically inclined as Jimmy, and they passed their talent on to all five of their children: Jimmy Jr., Bobby, Michael, Marguerite, and Brian. After joining his father’s Irish band as a teenager, Bobby then teamed up with his brother Jimmy to form The Byrne Brothers (Jimmy and Bobby).   Full Bio
