the Shananigans

  Irish, Scottish & East Coast Celtic Rock   

Shananigans are much more than just another Celtic Rock band. They are a musical experience like no other! The group brings to the stage a wide variety of sites and sounds from traditional folk to classic and contemporary rock and pop music. You never know what to expect at a Shananigans show as they always play to the crowd and their talents allow them the freedom to explore the music that best suites the mood.

With all of the members having Celtic roots it's not hard to understand where they find their inspiration for Irish, Scottish and East Coast  music.  Their sound follows in the footsteps of the Dubliners, Chieftains, Clancy Brothers, and the Irish Rovers and then proceeds to include  more contemporary influences such as Great Big Sea, Spirit of the West and Drop Kick Murphys giving the Shananigans the unique ability to be a Celtic Rock/Folk band with music that is enjoyed by everyone from 5 to 105.

the Shananigans have been featured on local & national television and radio programs as well as  the main stages of some of the biggest festivals and venues in South Western Ontario but they also make regular appearances at weddings, private parties and local pubs, so contact them today for your next event.
