"Rock + Pipes = MUDMEN" - The Rocky Mountain Outlook

"Rockin' The Crowds"

The Mudmen took the stage minus their lead singer, bringing most of the bar surging to their feet and launching into a blistering five minute instrumental tailor-made to psyche up the crowd. Snarling, stomping and flipping off the crowd, the band tore up the stage, ripping through their set with a staggering ferocity. It helped that every member of the band looked the part; you could easily picture these guys tearing up a bar without any problems. The bagpipers in particular (Robby and Sandy Campbell) dominated the stage, looking like a bouncer from a biker bar and the kind of aging Harley enthusiast who inexplicably manages to date a string of supermodels. Shortly joined by their lead singer, the band toasted the crowd with a can of Bud and got down to business, beginning with "5 O’Clock" and continuing with a drive that never relented. Mudmen’s music is a mix of hard rock and various Celtic styles, The band also has the kind of stage presence that demands a mosh pit — angry, electrifying and full of energy. The crowd was already juiced by the time the band started handing out beer; once they reached their hit cover of “Home for a rest,” the officials could barely keep the moshing crowd off the stage. In the end, the folk had to give up, as two or three shirtless guys joined the band on stage, belting out AC/DC’s “It’s A Long Way To The Top” to bring the night to a close.
By the time the concert had finished the chants of "Mudmen! Mudmen!" echoed as loudly as the band had played. In the end, the Mudmen are exactly what you might expect them to be — the best riot you’ve ever been to, and as good a time as you’re likely to have, drunk or sober. If you haven’t seen them yet, don’t miss the next opportunity;

The Mudmen are extraordinary, in the most literal sense of the word. With such a unique sound and instrumentation, it's difficult to place them within any one particular genre, which happens to be one of their strong points. Bag-piping brothers Robby and Sandy Campbell add an irreplaceable and unique element to the band's sound, and their image. The Mudmen's history is full of high energy Celtic rock sets, performing coast to coast all over North America and Europe. Recent developments spawning from successes such as their performance in Ottawa for the Queen of England when she visited for the Canada Day Celebrations in 2010, and their work with world-famous producer Bob Rock on the new Hockey Night in Canada theme have led them to develop a more diverse repertoire of music, catering to a universal audience. This maturation has yielded many successes including a 2010 cross continental tour with Juno Award winning recording artist Johnny Reid, and headlining spots on dozens of festivals and highland games performances throughout Canada and the United States.

The Mudmen's recorded music has been featured on programs such as NBC's The Black Donneley's, and Showtime's Shameless, as well as sound tracks for several video games, WWE's Celtic Tag Team 'The Highlanders', 6 music videos in rotation on MuchMusic, Don Cherry's Rock 'Em Sock 'Em series... The list goes on.

They've shared the stage with ZZ-Top, The Guess Who, Biff Naked, Nazareth, Finger Eleven, April Wine, Avril Lavigne, John McDermot, Korn, Helix, Spirit of the West, Vanilla Ice... This list goes on too.

2011 will welcome their 6th studio album, as well as several tours throughout North America. The Mudmen are both endearing and gritty, facing every day and every challenge with unparalleled determination, and true heart one would be hard-pressed to find anywhere else, in any industry. Canada is fortunate to house such a talent and call The Mudmen their own.
