Bio

Mac & Hawes are a Halifax, N.S. based group, performing in various formats from solo (Ryan Hawes), to a full 4-5 piece band, but most commonly as a 3 piece (2 Acoustic Guitars and Bass). Specializing in high energy live entertainment for weddings, parties, corporate events, and much more.  As one of Eastern Canada’s top bands for hire, Mac and Hawes have gained a reputation as a ‘go-to’ act for their ability to engage crowds and get people dancing.

Mac and Hawes are musicians with hundreds of shows under their belts,  as members of several popular East Coast bands. Their impressive resume reveals a staggering variety of special events, corporate engagements, pubs, festivals, fundraisers, private parties, weddings, and much more.

No matter what the setting, Mac & Hawes provide an experience that is much bigger than one might expect from a small group. Versatile voices, percussive guitar skills, customized sound/lighting equipment, and an extensive performance background give them the perfect tools to deliver a show that packs in as much entertainment value as a 5-6piece band. Their comfortable and often humorous onstage presence will put any crowd at ease, and their large and diverse song list is sure to please. (On-the-spot requests are always encouraged.)

Performances can be tailored to suit any style of music, upbeat or laid back, interactive or in the background. For testimonials, information, and additional services offered by Mac & Hawes, check out the booking page.
