They formed a band called The Bandits. A few years ago they re-branded themselves as The Costellos. Throughout the years band members have included: Danny McLoughlin (played bass and produced their first two records), Sean, ‘The Minnow’ McCarthy (drums) and Mark Pukmel (drums). Tony DeMarco has also sat in on drums and has acted as their sound and video man.
