Want to win me over at a conference? Easy: buy me a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinness">Guinness</a> or a <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_and_tan">Black &amp; Tan</a>. :)</p>
    <p>All hip to a new album by one of my favorite bands that was released a few weeks ago. The <a href="http://youngdubliners.com">Young Dubliners</a> released <a href="http://www.amazon.com/All-Due-Respect-Irish-Sessions/dp/B000LV6RD2/sr=8-1/qid=1172671108/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-0759142-5071034?ie=UTF8&amp;s=music">With All Due Respect: The Irish Sessions</a>... a fantastic album! If you're not familiar with the Dubs, I like to describe them as a rock band with a strong Irish influence... we're talking violins, harmonicas, etc. Want a sample? Check out the video on Amazon of one of the new tracks performed live: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/All-Due-Respect-Irish-Sessions/dp/B000LV6RD2/sr=8-1/qid=1172671108/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-0759142-5071034?ie=UTF8&amp;s=music">If I Should Fall from Grace with God</a>.</p>
    <p>Best part: the Dubs get you going... always upbeat, a fast temp... great stuff! Oh, and a FANTASIC group to see live... seen them in the House of Blues in Vegas and a few bars/clubs in Jacksonville. Can't wait for the tour to hit the south east of the USA! Come back to JAX Dubs!</p>
