The MacHams are 3 brothers from Toronto who put on a great show and have fun with their audience. They've had fun at great Toronto venues such as the Horseshoe Tavern, Lee's Palace, The Reverb, Kathedral, Opera House, Smiling Buddha, The Blue Moon Pub, La Cervejaria, the list goes on...
If you like indie rock, you should check 'em out!
Facebook, MySpace,'s all accessible from

...and for this new year, they'll be recording their first full-length album. Excitement's in the air!

So...where did the band get its name?
In the beginning, mom comes downstairs only to find the brothers posing with their instruments. "What a bunch of makhams!", she yells. Puzzled, they ask, "Huh? What does that mean?" Apparently, calling someone a makham (or maqam) is slang to call them a show-off BUT literally it's a term used in Arabic music for a type of scale. So the word was adopted and made to look like a Scottish last name! - The MacHams
(...and in case you're wondering, The MacHams are actually of Armenian descent)

Bottom line: The MacHams put on a great show for their audience and they're fun! =D
