Brothers Daniel McKewen (Uilleann pipes, guitar, bodhran) and John McKewen (bouzouki, tenor banjo, vocals) started the band with highschool friend Bryan Brookes (flute, whistle, concertina). They added Josh Franck (button accordion, vocals, bodhran). Later, Josh's dad Phil Franck (fiddle, bouzouki, 5-string banjo) was asked into the band.

The Drowsy Lads regularly pack the house at Byrnes Pub and the venerable Shamrock Club of Columbus. They’ve played a number of Irish festivals, but their yearly favorite remains playing The Dublin Irish Festival. The band also gets regular airplay on the weekly radio show "Toss The Feathers" on WCBE 90.5 FM.
