Biography

Originally formed in 2000, McGrath began their career by opening for The Loving Spoonful, Foghat, and Firefall at the Muscle Car Ranch in Chickasay, Oklahoma.

A year later, they did the same venue with Jefferson Airplane headlining the show. They followed up that success with a US Military tour of South Korea as the backup band for Penny Gilley. For their patriotism and ability to cheer the troops, the band was bestowed the Military Welfare and Recreation Award for Excellence

In 2002, the band did a tour of Indian reservation casinos throughout the United States in support of their original CD "Music, Education?" and sold a total of approximately 4,000 units out of the back of a Jeep Cherokee.

2003 brought with it opening for random acts throughout the United States, including Blues Traveler, The Outfield, Foghat, and Peter Tork and the Monkees. Their second CD, "Insomniatic Daydream," was released and videos for their singles "Where You Belong" and "Read Your Mind" were put into rotation on MTV 2.

After a two year hiatus from touring while they worked on writing and recording, the band is looking forward to heading back out on the road to perform for their fans and support their third album. With a total of over 20,000 units sold of their first two original discs, they are hoping to surpass that success and reach even more potential audiences around the world.
