Raised and educated in Vernon since the age of nine, McMahon has been deeply involved in our local music scene. He has enjoyed a 33-year career as a music teacher, a festival adjudicator and emcee, a member of more than a dozen different bands, and is an in-demand bass or sax sideman. “McMusic” has held a variety of roles with the Vernon Jazz Club since its inception including president for many years.

When not involved musically, McMahon enjoys cross-country skiing, playing hockey, riding his bike, and the tranquility found on Galliano Island.
