Based in the Woodstock/Kingston area, McGroovin is a Celtic Rock band with a high energy acoustic funk style. They came together in the spring of 2011 when Mike O'Leary (lead vocals, guitar and keyboard) brought together Pete Halvorsen (fiddle and mandolin), Michael Colletti (bass), and Callum Benepe (drums), all of whom he had worked with on previous projects. Since then they have developed a fun sound which they call Pi-rish Music (Pirate - Irish) incorporating a mix of uniquely adapted covers of Irish and rock tunes and finely crafted originals. The Daily Freeman's David Malachowski described O'Leary's album "What's it to Ya?" as "a fine outing" featuring songwriting that is "Beatlesque".
