Sean Fleming has talent that is as wide and varied as his lifestyle, from his birth in a Golf Club House ("....it's no wonder I'm a golf nut," says Sean) on the shores of the beautiful Lakes of Killarney to his many, many appearances in the United States such as in Philadelphia at the Robin Hood Dell where he performed to an audience of 9,000, on the Merv Griffin Show and as the Headliner at Carnegie Hall to a sold out house.
Sean began playing traditional Irish music in Irish dance halls and then his ambition as a singer began to take shape and he formed the Rocketeers Irish Showband. The Rocketeers toured throughout the U.S. and Canada playing in major cities such as Chicago, Boston, New York, San Francisco and Toronto. Sean's first big break came through the help of someone that holds a special place in Sean's memory, Merv Griffin. Sean was chosen from the audience to perform on Merv's Show which consequently led to several more appearances over the next couple of years on the Merv Griffin Show. Sean shared the spotlight with such artists as the Beach Boys, David Soul, Della Reese and Rodney Dangerfield. The shape of his career was becoming quite definite when he signed with MGM records and MGM motion pictures. However, it took an abrupt twist when he was called by Uncle Sam.
After serving Uncle Sam, Sean found himself back in New York starting all over again. His beginnings this time were spent working in small clubs and bars, which eventually led to many concert performances, including the one he gave in Philadelphia to 9,000 people. Other appearances include: the Irish Cultural Center in San Francisco and Southern Florida; Warner Brothers Theatre, Ohio; Westchester Country Club, New York; Flanagan's in New York, and his own bar in New York City through 1994, Ireland's Four Provinces and Cellar Door Productions in Washington D.C.(The Bayou)and Alexandria, Virginia's Birchmere, Music Fest Bethlehem, PA and all over the united states with the Irish Tourist Board . Also, to his credit are many radio shows and television appearances (including the PBS “Out of Ireland” series) throughout the United States, Ireland, Japan, Argentina, the Philippines and the Czech Republic.
