Majestic Bears originated on a whiksey-soaked poker night at a friend's house when Mike Burke (guitar, vocals, harmonica) and Ado Lyons (guitar, vocals) realised that they had similar tastes in music. They regularly started jamming with a banjo Ado received as a birthday present, until Wayne Foy (banjo, vocals) injected his almost sickening talent into the group. Their harmony-fuelled, acoustic/folk has developed a lot since those summer days through regular gigging around Galway and a desire to improve and hone their sound.
The band is part of the Citóg Records Collective, an independent record label on the West Coast of Ireland, and spent the summer of 2015 recording their 2nd EP.
