“Following a stellar performance, Scotch proved to be the highlight of bands performing at last weekend's Alsek Music Festival and one of the few acts oriented toward older youth. Uniquely composed of two pairs of brothers, the band's sound is of a fine blending of multiple music styles, including rock, punk, blues and jazz.”

"Five Bonies in the Snotlocker"

“[Their] album is like stepping into a nightclub; it reeks of whiskey and cigarettes, from the growling vocals to the honky-tonk piano. The arrangement of instruments is a unique palette from which songs of drink and regret, violence and sorrow, are painted. The tunes are lively and the musicianship is tight. Like a bad accident on the highway, I was unable to turn away.”

“[Their] album feels like a powder keg of emotion ready to ignite. The laser grooves in a CD cannot hope to translate the live act that Scotch presents.[It's] a shadow representation of Scotch — live — but, isn’t that the truth with all good live acts?”

“Scotch is a band that gets better with age and frequency of exposure.”

(Bill Polonsky, What's Up Yukon) - What's Up Yukon


“More than just music, the band presents itself to the audience with crass behaviour, ranging from crude jokes to witty puns, though always punchy. On stage, they first appear as an orderly group of gentlemen, dressed in suits, but through their lyrics and movements quickly degenerate into a motley band of hooligans.”

(Andrew Hoshkiw, Whitehorse Star) - Whitehorse Star


"When Scotch played our Cabaret Stage last year, it was obvious that the next generation had arrived!"

Bred in the basement of their small Whitehorse community, Scotch has been entertaining blues and rock faithfuls alike with their high energy live performances for the past three years. This band of brothers, raised on the same street and playing music together for the past decade, have a sound influenced by and comparable to the likes of Tom Waits, ZZ Top, The Allman Brothers, Ween and The Tragically Hip. After many years, countless bands and mixed line-ups they have found their niche in Scotch.

At the helm, Declan O'Donovan plays the keyboard and handles the lead vocal, backed by his brother Ryan's guitar, Adrian Bergman's bass guitar, and Joel Bergman's drums.

Over the last three years they have built widespread popularity for themselves through their sold-out shows, their 2005 EP (Five Bonies in the Snotlocker), their singles from the Listen Up compilation(Big Women and Karaoke and Under the Covers) and their appearances at the Dawson City and Alsek music festivals. Currently located in the Montreal, Quebec, the band is finishing up work on their first full length album.
