It I can be said, without any exaggeration, that The Real McKenzies are a national treasure. Founded in 1992 by the larger than life, punkrock poet laureate, Mr Paul McKenzie, this merry band of miscreants has spent a quarter century circumnavigating the globe to bring the McKenzies gospel to an ever-adoring throng of rebels, scallywags and ne'er do wells. There's not many bands that can boast of a twenty five year career as staggeringly adventurous, wildly tempestuous and utterly death-defying as The Real McKenzies. It would be a serious mistake to write them off as just another Celtic punk band. They are an unstoppable juggernaut of touring mayhem. A ferocious troupe of insanely talented minstrels, storytellers and entertainers melding traditional acoustic and electric to create a sound like no other. Their list of accolades is long. From sharing the stage with the likes of NOFX, Rancid, Flogging Molly, Metallica and Shane McGowan to appearing in film, books and video games to signing with the legendary Fat Wreck Chords, their story continues to astound.

Big John Bates is a guitarist/vocalist known for his western, post-punk revival guitar style, dark baritone voice, and a long association with Gretsch guitars. In 2010 John and (Missoulian upright bassist/vocalist) Brandy Bones co-founded the Noirchestra, a group composed of Big John Bates, Brandy Bones, RequiEmily (electric violin), and Ty-Ty (percussion). The band's atmospheric sound is relentless and features film noir-inspired, Dracula-awaking grooves.

Psychobilly from Edmonton.

«We're a no-frills, stripped down, foot-in-the-ass band playing our OWN shitkickers & some choice cuts — OUR way! We'll getcher party goin' AND gotcha nude!»
