A cross-reference to the first overnight radio show (CKCU 93.1 FM) placing a heavy emphasis on Canadian blues and fusions of same (2007-2012). From 2012-2014, "Rockin' the Blues from Canada" was broadcast on CHMR 93.5 FM (where it originated in 2005 as "Patchwork Blues").

HOUKA MONKS - HALLELUJAH VIDEO & TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT
Hallelujah Video & Tour Dates Announced
Looking for full-on, heart-stopping, soul pounding funk…..? Obviously! Listen herehoukamonks.com
Hailing from the burbs of Rainham, Houka Monks are a law unto themselves. Their passion and enthusiasm explode through your speakers with no remorse. They have taken the best elements of their biggest influences, took them on a funk odyssey and alchemised them to create something completely wild and unique.
Houka Monks have become a huge hit in Chelmsford, and it’s only a matter of time until their Steel Town Funk spreads across the whole of the United Kingdom and takes over the world (just ask Japan). The cynical lyrics of a misfit, interlaced between jangly guitars, retro beats and thumping bass lines are going to reverberate around your mind and have you singing along.
But don’t take my word for it the band are currently on tour, so why not see what all the fuss is about by seeing them live for yourself at the Venues below.
Tour Dates Announced
On May 17th the Houka Monks will be taking the stage at the prestigious Dublin Castle, Camden. This will be the first of many shows following the duo inking a deal with London's best live music promoter, BugBear.
June 10th - The Bitter End - Romford July 8th - The Constitution - Camden July 21st - The Hope & Anchor - Camden
