    Try (Interlude)
At the tender ages of 2 and 3, siblings Mackenzie and Ben began their musical partnership by yelling and enthusiastically (but terribly) strumming along to the Rankin Family at their Papa’s kitchen table.
From there the two only grew closer and more musically in sync. Mackenzie brings soulful melodies and sweet, heartfelt lyrics to the group, while the multi-instrumentalist Ben, pulls beautiful rhythms and complex harmonies out of his guitar, keyboard, and voice, to compliment them perfectly. Joined by a handful of incredible musicians, MACK & BEN is a tight and groovy band, that means business.
This sibling pair have gained both experience and attention through their respective work with local bands The Commotions, Sly High, The Split, Monday I Retire and a variety of other ensembles around town. The pair are making great headway in and around Ottawa, and coming off a great year of shows that include RBC Ottawa Bluesfest and TD Ottawa Jazz Festival, are ecstatic to be bringing things back to basics and really put their sibling power to work.
