Paul McKenzie is the founder and lead singer of “The Real McKenzies” founded in 1992, The Real McKenzie are one of the first bands to blend celtic folk music with 2nd wave punk rock. Paul is the original member. Along the way, they’ve had over 33 members playing and touring in the band. Based out of Vancouver, the band set out on a western Canadian tour. I caught up with Paul in Edmonton hours after they found out the sold out show was cancelled. Later, they played a live streamed show to an empty venue with thousands watching on Facebook live. On the next day, they were on their way back home.
