Canadians You SHOULD Know!!


This is gonna be one heck of a show People!!!  


First you have MonkeyJunk ( the Ottawa-based band who came along just when music fans needed them the most.  With Steve Marriner (Vocals/Harp/Guitar), Tony D (Guitar) and Matt Sobb (Drums/Shaker), they brought an accessible and refreshing blend of swamp-rock roots and blues to the table and haven’t looked back. In the relatively short time they’ve been performing and recording together, the members of MonkeyJunk have won a collective 20 Maple Blues Awards, two Canadian Independent Music Awards, a Blues Music Award (USA), and have been nominated twice for a JUNO Award, taking home the coveted hardware in 2012.


MonkeyJunk performs the title track single from their Debut Album "Tiger In Your Tank." Recorded in St. John's, Newfoundland in September 2008 for TV show "Out Of The Fog."


Next up, the Paul DesLauriers Band ( who are made up of virtuoso guitarist and singer Paul DesLauriers and masterful rhythm section Greg Morency on bass and Sam Harrisson on drums. On January 30th 2016 the band took 2nd place at the 32nd International Blues Challenge, the world’s largest gathering of blues acts, organized by The Blues Foundation. Held in Memphis Tennessee, they rose to the top to take the runner-up title in the band category in a world-wide competition that saw 119 bands competing for a spot on the podium. The current self-titled electric album from these three pillars of the Quebec Blues scene has captured the subtlety and intensity, the unique interplay and excitement they are so well known for. Released to unanimously excellent reviews in March 2014, the album reached the #1 spot on the iTunes Canada Blues Chart within a month! They are currently touring Canada and the USA in support of the album.



Here they rip through Going Down Slow, She Should Be Mine, All I Want, and Love In Vain from their self-titled CD -



If you haven't seen Cecile Doo-Kingue yet (, this is your time!!  An exceptional stage presence, guitarist / singer-songwriter Cécile Doo-Kingué blends blues, afro-roots and soul to create a unique sound. Born and raised in New York City, first generation from Cameroon, she has lived in the USA, France, and is now an adopted Montrealer.



Cécile Doo-Kingué isn’t just another token “chick” guitarist; considered one of Canada’s most electrifying and versatile guitarists her talents are measured not by gender lines, but by the fact that she is quickly earning a stellar reputation and a place alongside Canada’s current roster of great guitarists. Powerful and raw, Cécile Doo-Kingué’s guitar prowess, lyrics, and sound make for enthralling and intimate communion.  From the "Anybody Listening" - Part 1 Monologues -
