Mike Murdock, Mike Masuda, and Sean McGuire are close friends who have known each other most of their lives. With each having a love affair with music across all genres and all decades, they've played music together off and on since their teens. In 2009, Murdock and Sean finally ventured into unknown territory and formed an acoustic guitar duo . Masuda joined shortly after with his infamous "Kludge" kit, a small drum kit with a big sound.
Hootenanny! focuses on playing big hits & forgotten classics, and enjoys tackling songs that normally wouldn’t be expected from a three piece acoustic band. The result is a fun, eclectic and entertaining blend of music.
