Mahones


The Mahones were formed at the end of the bar at the Toucan Irish Pub in Kingston, (Ontario Canada), in 1990 over a few pints of Guinness and a couple of shots of Jamesons Irish Whiskey. It was the brilliant idea of Dublin-born Finny McConnell and his musical mentor Barry Williams to put together a band that sounded like The Clash, The Pogues, The Who, The Waterboys, Husker Du and The Dubliners with a dash of The Replacements and a name that rhymed with The Ramones.

Once the stew was complete, a one off gig was booked, March 17th, St. Patrick's Day.

Go figure. The world has never been the same since that day Seven cd's have now been released (Draggin' The Days, Rise Again, The Hellfire Club Sessions, Here Comes Lucky, Live At The Horseshoe, Paint The Town Red, and Take No Prisoners) and The Mahones have been on too many tours to count. Europe, Scandinavia, Australia and North America have been the usual stomping grounds for these Irish Punk Legends. Always enjoying a rotating line-up of fantastic musicians, this Irish gang of rockers led by singer/songwriter Finny McConnell have played at many major concerts and festivals in Europe (Folkwoods, Huntenpop), Australia (National Celtic Festival) and North America (Guinness Fleadh, NYC, Molson Park Canada Day - Toronto, etc.) alongside legends such as Van Morrison,Shane MacGowan, D.O.A., The Tragically Hip, Blue Rodeo, Steve Earle, Sinead O'Connor, Flogging Molly, and Christy Moore, to name a few. More recently, Terry Woods and Phil Chevron of the Pogues joined The Mahones on stage for a tour of Central and East Coast Canada! Read more on Last.fm.
