The McGowan Family Band is an Edmonton based musical ensemble dedicated to producing innovative music and high energy shows that are accessible to a wide audience of all musical tastes and ages. With musical influences that include rock, folk, reggae and blues, The McGowan Family Band is looking to take their music on a career path by playing to new audiences on a regular basis. Between their original songs and familiar cover tunes, they are able to perform at any event. The McGowan Family Band’s nucleus consists of brothers Paul McGowan (guitar, vocals), Mark McGowan (drums, percussion, vocals, guitar) and Sean McGowan (guitar, vocals, bass). Playing and creating music was a large part of their up-bringing and continues to be a collective passion. The current McGowan Family Band line-up is rounded out by Ryan Holmes (bass, guitar, vocals), Sean Brewer (guitar, bass, vocals, banjo), and Jason Kodie (keyboards, vocals). In February of 1999, The McGowan Family Band played their debut show to an appreciative crowd in Edmonton. Since then, the band has made numerous public appearances at clubs, fundraisers and outdoor festivals.
