The Real McKenzies
The Real McKenzies
A road hardened crew of traveling minstrels, entertainers and vagabonds on a never ending quest for good times, The Real McKenzies are a ferocious gang of miscreants that have been captivating fans with their addictive blend of classic punk, hard folk and traditional Celtic. Anthemic guitars and soaring bagpipes play off each other as Paul McKenzie spins yarn of times long past and regales with tales of endless drunken revelries. Celebrating their new album 'Rats In The Burlap,' this Vancouver based band released eight albums in their two decades and shared the stage with Rancid, Flogging Molly, The Misfits, Shane McGowan and Metallica, garnering new friends and fans along the way.

"The Real McKenzies are the rare outfit that improves with every album." - PUNKNEWS
"…they've never strayed far from their unique blend of Scottish folk and Spirit of '77 punk rock. Much like Boston's Dropkick Murphys, there is ample bagpipe to be heard on any of The Real McKenzies' releases, which lends well to the band's ear for melody." - ABSOLUTEPUNK
"They've been busting out solid Celtic punk rock for over a decade, yet you'll still find kids on the internet calling them out for ripping off bands like Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly, both of whom came out of the gates a few years after the McKenzies released their first album in 1996 and were doubtlessly influenced by the band's sound and look." - EXCLAIM MAGAZINE
