The Johnny McCuaig Band is a Canadian band. Now, you’re probably wondering, “What the hell does that mean?” Well, for starters, they don’t say ‘about’ as ‘aboot’ and they definitely don’t sound like Nickelback, Justin Bieber, Arcade Fire or Drake. Instead, they draw on Canada’s rich, cultural mosaic to create an original mix of musical genres that stands out in the crowd. We’re talking a super fun blend of adult contemporary rock, pop, and blues combined with their not-so-secret weapon: bagpipes!
The Johnny McCuaig Band consistently thrill fans with their one-of-a-kind live show that bursts with energy and positive vibes. If you don’t leave a TJMB show without a perma-grin then there’s just no hope for you.
This group has electrified audiences in Sweden, Japan, Canada, Mexico and The U.S.A. With their new release “Lions as Ravens” coming out Sept of 2018, TJMB is set to be a house hold name. The band consists of Johnny McCuaig- lead vocals, bagpipes and rhythm guitar, James Picton Lead – guitar and vocals, Allen Morrison – rhythm guitar and vocals, Kevin Kyle – Bass and vocals, and Dan Barton – Drums, percussion and vocals.
To truly get the full Johnny McCuaig Band experience, you HAVE to see them live onstage. Live, their brand of melodic ear candy becomes a feast for the senses. Bagpipes, a kilt, crunching guitars, a hip-shaking rhythm section, and boundless energy makes for one hell of a show. These guys continue to exemplify rock music without the sensitive beards and banjo’s. With high profile gigs such as Fremont Street in Las Vegas and Live at Heart festival in Sweden under their belt to countless venues across Canada and the U.S. A., TJMB is set on expanding the McCuaig Brigade around the world.
It’s not Celtic. It’s not Pop. It’s not Alternative. It’s everything. It’s TJMB. The McCuaig Brigade is a party and you’re invited!
