The Real McKenzies: Paul McKenzie Dave Gregg Matthew MacNasty Kurt Robertson Joe Raposo Sean Sellers and Mark Boland
Seven-man Celtic punk band from Vancouver, The Real McKenzies combine bagpipes with punk sounds, deriving their musical influences, not only from bands such as Rancid and The Sex Pistols, but also from their traditional Scottish and Celtic roots.
Determined and driven to show their audience a good time, The Real McKenzies tour frequently and turn every performance into a party, or as the Scots would say, Ceilidh (kee-lee). The kilted punks have shared a stage with bands such as, NOFX, Flogging Molly, Rancid, and The Misfits, naming just a few; they have 8 albums out to date, with their latest being, Off The Leash.
