Hire Us For Live Music In Halifax

Merimac Band

Meet Merimac! Atlantic Canada’s first-choice band for hire, private functions, corporate event and all around facilitator of unforgettable entertainment!

Merimac is a 4 piece group (often 5 with fiddle/piano) based in Halifax, NS, playing Current Pop, Classic Rock, EDM/Dance, Maritime/Celtic, Country, Reggae, R&B and more!  Its well-known, seasoned members bring a variety of influences and are sure to please any crowd from the Maritimes and Atlantic Canada, as well as the United States.

Merimac has been full-time since 2001 with good reason. With plenty of experience playing private functions, corporate events, clubs & public concerts, they definitely know how to get the party going and people up dancing. Creating a worry-free, fun-filled, memorable event is one of Merimac’s strong points!  We have fun at our shows and the audience feeds off that good energy.


Merimac has played over 400 events throughout the Maritimes, Ontario and the U.S., not to mention hundreds of live club dates at Halifax Alehouse, The Split Crow, Cheers, Dolan’s Pub, and Olde Dublin just to name a few.

They’ve also played almost every University in the Maritimes, building a good following everywhere they perform. Merimac regularly plays many of the biggest festivals in the Maritimes such as the Antigonish Highland Games, Canada Day Festivities, Dragon Boat Races, Trenton Fun Fest, Festival of the Straight, Don Yorke Memorial Slopitch in Parsborro, Charlo Fall Festival, Spring Fling in Merimachi, TunaFest, IWK Pig Roast, Cod Stock, Lobster Bash, Sam Slick Days, and many more.


You can’t help but sing out loud and have fun with this infectious bunch–their stage presence and interaction with the crowd will transform YOUR event into a serious party!!  See you there!
