The Hooligans are Kyle Martin (vocals, guitar, drums) and Mike McRorie (vocals, guitar, banjo, mandolin). They met in May of 2018 and immediately connected with their love of roots and folk music. Kyle was originally born in Calgary, but grew up in Nova Scotia, leaving the island shortly after high school to start seeing the world. Kyle picked up the guitar when he was 24 during his second combat tour in Afghanistan and has not stopped writing and playing a blues/folk style of original music since then. Mike McRorie grew up playing drums in heavy metal bands and discovered his love for acoustic and roots music later in life. He's since discovered his love for songwriting and enjoys collaborating with other musicians. Together,they play heavy percussion with gravely vocals who share a love for singer/songwriter folk-inspired music. This two piece guitar/banjo group will keep your feet moving with a mix of original and cover songs.
