Lifelong Bostonian and lead singer of the punk band Street Dogs, Mike McColgan has not always taken the easy road in the music business.
After a stint in the first Gulf War, McColgan became the original lead singer of the Dropkick Murphy’s. Right before the Dropkicks were finding the success they have today, McColgan left the band to pursue his lifelong dream and family tradition to become a Boston Firefighter.
After a few years on the job, music was still calling McColgan, so he left the fire department and formed his current band, Street Dogs.
