The Shenanigans are a three piece Rock and Roll band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada now residing in Austin, Texas. Their sound has been described as a mix of classic southern rock and dirty garage punk. Toronto Sun critic Daryl Sterdan said the band sounded like “Kings of Leon but with bigger amps and a raunchier singer”. They have also been compared to the likes of classic rock superstars CCR and modern stars The White Stripes.

The Shenanigans formed when childhood friends Kevin McKeown (Lead Vocals, Guitar) and Eric Owen (Drums) found a common love for Rock and Roll music with high school chum John O’Leary (Bass). The band began playing live gigs around town making appearances at many Toronto hot spots including Lee’s Palace and headlining at the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern. They have also played a variety of venues throughout Ontario and Quebec. Their most reputable gig was playing a support slot for the multi-platinum selling hard rock act, SKID ROW. They also recently opened for The Sisters of Mercy which was a Live Nation production.

The band recorded and released their debut LP “Bombshell Baby” in the fall of 2007. Although the band was coordinating with both EMI and Warner music, the album was released on the band’s newly formed label, Rifle Bird Records. The album features 11 hard hitting tracks including the singles “Bombshell Baby”, “Goin to Memphis”, "Brainchild" and “Put you away”. These songs have been receiving airplay world wide on terrestrial (102.1 The EDGE, 94.9 THE ROCK, Y108, 91.7 FM in Austin), internet (Indie Love), and satellite (CBC 3 on Sirius and The Verge 52 on XM) radio stations. The band has signed on for filmmaker Jason Lupish to shoot their first music video for the song “Bombshell Baby” in November 2008. Afterwards, they plan on hitting the road for extensive touring and continuing their climb to the top.
