Major's Mess Hall is a comedy infused podcast based out of Nova Scotia Canada, Liverpool UK, and Chicago USA.
Starting in 2015, Gavin Scott and Craig decided to create a podcast in memory of their friend "Major" who had recently passed away. The podcast was initially a way of keeping their friends memory alive, but has become something even more worthwhile.
Over the last few years the guys have talked to some interesting guests, including platinum musical acts, to best selling authors, to movie and tv actors from shows such as Trailer Park Boys, Only Fools And Horses and BBC's The Office. The show is filled full of funny conversations, from movie reviews, to general trivia, and even discussions over the latest video game releases.
The show also has originality to it with some of its own features, like "grinds my gears", "Craggleoke" and the popular "Backtrack".
There is some strong language at times, but it all plays a part in the hilarious antagonizing and roasting that goes on. The feel of the show is very much "three mates in a pub" and is all in the name of fun.
Gavin - originally from Liverpool, UK, Gavin was heavily involved with the music scene. From being in various bands, to working as a session singer for other artists and songwriters. He spent a lot of time on the road touring with his original band 'Instinct'. After moving on from the group, Gavin spent a few years in America, working with other musicians at a local recording studio in Pennsylvania, and helping to produce a rock musical with a local musical director. Eventually Gavin settled in Nova Scotia, Canada, where he continues to write music, record with UK based synth rock band 'Men In The Sky' and occasionally performs as a background artist for various film productions (most notably 2014's Trailer Park Boys - Don't Legalize It). Since early 2015 Gavin has taken a keen interest in podcasting, and is really enjoying recording and producing the Majors Mess Hall podcast.
