From an Irish pub to an Academy Award winning movie: The Mahones have come a long way in 29 years. Heralded as pioneers of the Irish punk scene, and internationally recognized as one of the best and hardest working punk outfits around, The Mahones formed on St. Patrick’s Day in 1990, and have been working on their own brand of Irish punk ever since. With a working class ethic and a love of classic punk, Dublin-born Finny McConnell (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Songwriter) formed the band to combine his love of punk rock with his Irish culture. Alongside McConnell are Sean Riot Ryan (Bass, Vocals), Michael O’Grady (Tin Whistle, Accordion, Vocals), Al Baby Webster (Drums, Percussion), Nicole Kaiser (Accordion, Vocals) and occasionally Gina Romantini (Fiddle, Vocals).
