The Brothers Creeggan (often referred to as simply Brothers Creeggan) are a Canadian alternative rock/jazz band composed of Jim Creeggan (upright bass, guitar, bass guitar, vocals), Andy Creeggan (guitar, piano, accordion, percussion, vocals) and Ian McLauchlan (drums). Jim is a current member of Barenaked Ladies and Andy was a Barenaked Ladies member until February 1995.

The Brothers Creeggan have released four albums to date: The Brothers Creeggan, The Brothers Creeggan II, Trunks, and Sleepyhead. The band was a duo until Trunks, when Ian McLauchlan joined as a drummer.

In addition to his albums with Jim, Andy Creeggan has two solo albums: Andiwork and Andiwork II, released in 1997 and 2004. They are mostly instrumental and experimental.

Jim and Andy have played together ever since they can remember. Before they joined Barenaked Ladies in 1989, they played in a variety of high school bands and other miscellaneous groups. They are both graduates of Sir Oliver Mowat C.I. in Scarborough, Ontario.

On July 13th, 2009, drummer Ian McLauchlan died from complications following heart surgery in Toronto.
