We are sad to announce the cancellation of the March 14th Red Dog show in a effort to curb the spread of the Covid19 virus. The band is super bummed of course as we have been working hard to get ready for this. We planned on playing, for the first time, 4 new songs that we think are high energy and very fun to listen / dance too! No plans for a reschedule as of now. We, like everyone else, will be watching the development and the eventual end to this scary virus. -FOM

Wow! What a night! Thank you all for joining us at the Red Dog Saloon. It was fun for us to play for such a large, enthusiastic and dancing crowd - thank you!
Also like to thank Clint Davis for taking care of the sound engineering for the show. Also Michael Penn for photography and Eric and Tessany at the Red Dog for making it all happen! -FOM
From snowstorms to avalanches to the dark of night, Fire on McGinnis historically has not been lucky with shows and weather. Pier 49 was an exception. Nice, sunny warm evening with light winds at Juneau’s newest semi outdoor eatery, Pier 49. We had a great time playing to a large and enthusiastic crowd. Our thanks to Pier 49 and Charlie Harrington for organizing the event and to Molly Tankersley for taking all the great photos (including the “money shot” of Mike piping on the tables!). Also, huge kudos go to Keith Giles, Clint Davis and the boys from Alaska One for providing the sound equipment and sound engineering for the show. Alaska One has always played a key role in the development of Fire on McGinnis and has been there from the start.
The band took a little break from summer vacations but is back on a regular practice schedule. We are having fun taking a stab at a few new tunes. We all love The Police and have been thinking about how to combine a “Message in a bottle” with an Irish folk tune. We think we found an answer so, stay tuned for that! We also love a Dropkick Murphy’s song called “Rose Tattoo.” Of course, no can rock “Rose Tattoo” like the Dropkick Murphy’s but we like to challenge ourselves and it’s such a sing-a-long kind of song!
Cheers for now! -FOM
Sorry folks, the performance at the Hangar Ballroom on Oct. 13th is off. It was to be a fundraiser to help people buy eyeglasses who otherwise can't afford them. As the band we don't always know why things fall through and we do know that a lot of people were looking forward to this so, for that, we are sorry. Check back here for new shows however and we are going to try to do this next year! -FOM
Thank you all for joining us at the "Rock Around the Block Party." We all agreed that this was a really great gig that came off extremely well. We would like to thank Amanda Filori, Meghan Chambers, MC Eric Scott and Nancy DeCherney from the Juneau Arts and Humanities Council for making the event happen. We also would like to thank Erik Chadwell from Studio A for making us sound good! -FOM
No immediate plans for the next show so check back here or on our Facebook page for an upcoming event!
