EUGENE, Ore. -- KEZI 9 News has learned the St. Patrick's Day party to  benefit Catholic Community Services, where local musicians are lending their talent, is sold out.

KEZI 9 News got a behind-the-scenes preview of the band, Irish Echo, rehearsing for the upcoming concert and dinner.  Irish Echo has been together for 37 years. Band members are local business leaders, doctors, and teachers who donate their talent for community concerts.  

Irish Echo's next gig is the St. Patrick's Day Party at Marist High School.  The event will help fund the school's Project Starfish and support the G Street Oasis Program at CCS that started in 2016.  The program helps homeless families with children in Springfield.

Band members said the St. Patrick's Day Party is action-packed with traditional Irish songs.

"These are songs that you don't often hear on the radio, just funny songs, fun to sing. People get into it and they are clapping and dancing," said band member Jerry Ragan.

The St. Patrick's Day party is Saturday, March 17 at Marist High School's Activity Center. Last year, the event raised  $12,000 for Catholic Community Services.
