    Good Times At Harmony Square With Tragically Hip Fans

    Good Times At Harmony Square With Tragically Hip Fans

    What a GREAT DAY!! It was an honour and a privilege to warm up the Hip fans last Saturday afternoon at Harmony Square in Brantford. We would like to thank Jenn and the whole crew for their expedience and helpfulness throughout the day. And of of course ... The Tragically Hip gets our utmost respect and gratitude... All the best to Gord and the boys.

    It was great to perform in front of a diverse group of Brantfordians, and also to see some of our friends and fans come out with their entire families. We really got a kick out of performing for the "kids of all ages" who turned up for this monumental and historic rock and roll event.

    Thanks Brantford! ... and see you soon...

    We Did It!!!

    We Did It!!!

    Thanks to everyone who came out to Manny's Place last Saturday night. Although our fearless Vox-man David Griffin was sorely missed (he was very much under the weather), we were thankful to have "Halo Of Flies" singer David Bistolas (pictured) help out with the vocals on the second set. Much thanks David!!

    We would also like to send a shout out to our old pal Brett Davidson from "Cold Ethyl" who rocked a rendition of "Let's Shake" with us early in the night.

    Let's not forget the AWESOME job our very own Rob Robbins did on vocals for the night. As always Rob... You rock brother!

    We will definitely be back in full force on March 26th and beyond. Griff is on the mend and will be back at 100%. Hope to see you all at the next gig.

    A Tribute To The Liquid Lounge

    A Tribute To The Liquid Lounge

    The Liquid Lounge has been so great to the band all of these years! An integral part of our continuing evolution! It was an absolute pleasure to rock out with so many familiar faces time after time after time...An incredible bunch of live music lovers that kept Hairy Mulligan striving for perfection with every note, gig after gig after gig! We never let you down!

    Thank you to Cheri & Scotty & Craig & all of the servers and doormen & kitchen staff over the years & Mr. Friendly collecting beer bottles and sweeping at the end of each gig! We found everyone incredibly easy to work with & always professional!!! When things got heated, as they sometimes do when you mix booze & boneheads, it was a No Nonsense policy and the trouble makers were always ejected quickly, effectively & professionally, allowing the party to continue! Plus there were so many regulars there that we always said it was "self-governed"! One big happy family!!! ...

    Well, as they say, when one door closes another door opens! We promise to keep the music alive & WE WANT YOU ALL WITH US FOR THE RIDE!!! We are packing up our mics, guitars, amps, drums, cables and moving on over to Manny's Place!!! In our opinion now the BEST venue for live music around with massive stage, sound system, light show, dance floor, great room for crisp sound and lots of room to party!!! ... SO 3 CHEERS FOR THE LIQUID LOUNGE FAMILY FOREVER IN OUR ROCK & ROLL HEARTS!!!

    Dave & The Boys

    Get Well Soon Rod!!!

    Get Well Soon Rod!!!

    As some of you may or may not know.... sadly, our bass-pumpin powerhouse - Rod Albon was injured just hours prior to the Hairy Mulligan gig on Friday, February 27. Rod was in emergency well into the wee hours, and ended up having surgery on the following Friday. The bad news is.... Rod will be out of commission til at least June. This according to the finest medical professionals to ever grace the halls of the finest Medical Institutions ever known to Brantford. Get well soon Rod. We need you back on stage ASAP!

    Luckily, our good pal and bass wizard [Iron] Dave Bennett was available to help us out that night, and showed up for the last two songs of the first set, and proceeded to ROCK the house with us for the remainder of the evening. A HUGE thanks again to Iron Dave.

    Well, we already had the upcoming March 28th gig booked, so it looks like we will have occassion to, once again, be indebted to Iron Dave as he has agreed to step in and provide the bottom for Hairy Mulligan in Rod's absence on March 28th.

    See You There!!

    A HAIRY Night For Hairy Mulligan

    Thanks very much to all our friends who braved the bitter cold to come ROCK out with us last night!!! It's true, a freak mishap before the show sent our Bass Man Rod to the hospital, but we can happily report that he is now slowly on the mend!!! Hairy Mulligan has ALWAYS been true to the old adage that THE SHOW MUST GO ON!!! We will NEVER disappoint our friends!!! (The only gig we've ever had to cancel was in 2005 when Dave had a temperature of 106 - what a wuss!!) So, with the support & understanding of our friends & the staff last night, we did our best as a Rockin' 4 piece, with Dan & Rob trading back & forth between guitar & bass, jamming through 1/2 the 1st set, when a friend of the band, Dave Bennett, appeared and Rocked out on bass with the boys for the remainder of the night - Thank You Dave!!! Before long the crowd was up Rockin' & Dancin', wrapped in that velvety blanket-like Wall Of Sound that Hairy Mulligan is famous for!!! Cheers everybody - we'll see you next month at the Liquid Lounge, March 27th!!!

    It's with a sincere and heavy heart that I share with you that, after all these wonderful years together, the members of Hairy Mulligan have decided to go their separate ways. No regrets. No hard feelings. Just INCREDIBLE memories!!!

    Music is, and will always be, a tremendous part of our lives!

    Most of the guys look forward to continuing on with other exciting musical endeavours, so keep an eye out for us! We look forward to continuing to share our musical experiences with you all!

It was a great pleasure!

Please continue to support all the great local talent whether in nightclubs & restaurants to the unstoppable Indie Music Scene and the many, many festivals including Canada Day, Blues, Jazz & the Kiwanis Music Festival (to name just a few) and the many supportive fundraisers and other events that are always happening in and around the area!

    Mulligan Rocks Harmony Square

    Sept 6th - Had a GREAT time at Harmony Square!!!

    Made many many new friends!!! There were all sorts of people representing different generations, nationalities ... and dancing styles! From the more 'mature' ladies swaying back and forth to the rhythm on the coffee house terrace; to the many little pockets of families dancing together all over the square; to the acrobats, BMXers and skateboarders rocking out; to the kids dancing and splashing in the fountain!!! What a BEAUTIFUL experience!!! Special thanks to Joan Minnery for putting this first annual event together!!! A big thank you to Mike La Pointe and Milkman Productions for doing a great job of mixing the sound and to all the other bands who rocked the square from 4pm all the way through - an honour to share the stage with you!

    Packed House Once Again!

    Just played another amazing high energy show at the always crazy Liquid Lounge. This place never ceases to amaze us. Every time we play here the crowd reaction is incredilble.

    We made a new number one fan ( heads up Monique! ) last night. This young dude was front and center all night and wouldn't stop bangin' his head until he finally banged it on the floor towards the end of the evening - it might have somethin' to do with the double fistin' he had goin' on all night!

    Once again the band would like to thank everybody at the Lounge...great time as always.

    Never a disappointing night at the Liquid Lounge. The house was full and everyone was rockin' as usual!

    It was a very interesting evening...our drummer almost had his car stolen, our "number one fan" was out and stompin' the dance floor all night and it seemed liked everyone either wanted to take a picture of the band or wanted us to take theirs!

    Hairy Mulligan would like to thank Sherri for having us - always a pleasure.

    The Slye Fox

    Hairy Mulligan SLYEds into the FOX

    This was our first time at the Slye Fox and the bands' first time playing in Burlington.

    This is a great pub. The atmosphere and the layout of the pub is really good. If you're into "testing" different beers this is the place to go. They have a great selection of domestic and imported beers for your tasting pleasure!

    The band would like to thank Steve for his hospitality and the pleasure of playing for the evening...cheers!

    Frank & Steins

    Hairy Mulligan shocks the "MONSTER"

    This was our first time at Frank & Steins and let me tell you, this is a very cool place! The sound system supplied by the bar was very good and the staff was great!

    The patrons were commenting all evening to the band how glad they were to see a "ROCK" band roll in for a change! Glad we were able to shake things up for the people of Guelph.

    The band would like to say thanks to Dario for letting us tame the "MONSTER".

    Liquid Lounge

    No "Lounging" around on this night!

    We just wrapped up another evening at Brantfords' most rockin' bar! We weren't exactly sure if anyone was going to show up or not due to the long weekend, but let me tell ya...this place was its usual rockin' good time!

    The band would like to say thanks to the staff who always seem to be having just as good a time as the patrons! Also a special thank-you to Sherri for giving us the opportunity to entertain.

    Lazy Flamingo

    The Flamingo not so Lazy

    I'm tellin' ya, they should rename the bar The Rocking Flamingo! The place was hoppin' last night.

    This is such a great place to play. The atmosphere is electric. The dance floor was full, the patio was jammed and inbetween sets we couldn't help but notice the whole street was alive!

    The Mulligans would like to say thanks to all of the people that have come out to see us at The Lazy Flamingo, you have been awesome! A special thanks also to Jim for giving us the opportunity to play at this very happenin' club!

    Welcome To The Net

    Welcome To The Net

    Hairy Mulligan launches official website

    Hairy Mulligan would like to welcome you all to the official website. This website wouldn't have even been a consideration if it wasn't for the overwhelming crowd response we've received over the last several months.

    We would like to thank you all for your continued support and look forward to playing at your local hang-out again.

    A special thanks goes out to "Shillberg" our web guru. Located in Vancouver, Canada he did an amazing job to ensure a very cool site!
