Irish Tik Tok band “Cairde” is set to perform in one of the world’s biggest breakfast shows on St. Patrick’s Day.
The Irish Dancers have nearly 2 million subscribers on Tik Tok, but are set to step into the US market with tomorrow’s performances, live on Good Morning America.
Not only that, but the performance will be shown on the famous big screens located in Times Square in New York.
The band consisting of Dara Kelly, Francis Fallon, Stephen McGuinness, Seamus Morrison, Brian Culligan, Ethan Quintan and Ronan O’Connell spoke to the Irish Mirror about the life-changing performance:
“We’re going to be having Good Morning America on Paddy’s Day, which is really exciting.
“We will do four performances, then we will be interviewed.
“It will be our great performance and we are looking forward to it.
“We’ve been planning this for some time and can’t wait.
“It will also be shown live on the big screens in Times Square, which is really cool and crazy.
Social media success is already theirs – but appearing on America’s top-rated morning TV show should bring them a whole new level of fame.
The guys have increased their number of subscribers over the past couple of years, but still remember their original goal of getting 1,000 subscribers.
“It’s really crazy, we thought our appearance on Late Late last September would be the most important thing we ever did.
“We thought he could only go down the hill from there, but in reality he keeps going up.
“Thinking that our goal at the beginning was to get 1,000 subscribers, and now we’re on the verge of reaching 2 million.
“And there are still bigger and better things to come from us.
Asked about their plans when the country begins to reopen, the group said they wanted to stay grounded but looked forward to more opportunities.
“We’re just going to take each day as it really comes.
“Every day we get messages from people about new opportunities, so it will be interesting to see what happens when things open up again and we can travel.
“It will be great to do TV interviews instead of being zoomed in all the time.
“Our biggest audience on all of our platforms right now is America, so hopefully we can continue to grow the channels and be able to play them someday.
