Hello MonkeyJunkies,

We are extremely honoured to announce (if you haven’t heard already) that we have received the 2012 JUNO AWARD for Best Blues Album!!  (Canada’s equivalent to the Grammy Awards)  The whole JUNO weekend was an amazing experience – from Matt & Steve playing in the Juno Cup to our JUNOFEST gig to winning the award and performing at the Juno Awards Gala to co-presenting the Artist Of The Year JUNO with Sam Roberts to Feist; to hanging out with the likes of Blue Rodeo and Ron McLean at the Warner Music after party! Phew!!!

We are just getting back to normal now . . . you can see our acceptance speech in a video on the Ottawa Citizen website HERE

Also, you can see us presenting with Sam Roberts and introducing Simple Plan HERE . . . William Shatner called us “The Sultans of Swamp R&B” – how cool is that?

Huge thanks goes out to all of you for your support over the past 4 years – we couldn’t have made it as far as we have without you all!  Much love and thanks to our co-producer Ken Friesen, our agent Brian Slack, Holger Peterson and everyone at Stony Plain Records as well as our friends and families who support us the most!  We would also like to acknowledge the other nominees in our category – all friends of ours who put out great records this year – Bill Johnson, David Gogo, Harrison Kennedy and Suzie Vinnick.


check out the updated tour dates page and stay tuned – more summer dates will be announced soon!


til next time,

Tony, Steve and Matt
