The new version of the ever-popular Blues on the Rideau Series, now called Blues at The Cove at The Cove Inn with it’s “Summer Outdoor Series” on Thursday August 10th, 2023 with a performance by MonkeyJunk.
What can you say about this amazing Swamp Blues/Rock Trio featuring three of Canada’s best – Steve Marriner on vocals, baritone base, keyboards and harp, Tony D on guitar and Matt Sobb on drums. Since they blasted on to the scene in 2008 they’ve released 5 hit albums, won 2 Junos, a staggering 23 Maple Blues Awards, 2 Canadian Independent Music Awards and an American Blues Music Award. They’ve toured relentlessly to just about every corner of Canada as well as the U.S. and a dozen different countries. Wherever they go they make new fans – affectionately known as “Monkey Junkies”. Luminaries like Dan Aykroyd (Elwood Blues), David Wilcox, Holger Petersen, William Shatner, Ritchie Hayward of Little Feat, actor Bruce Greenwood and many others count themselves as major fans.
MonkeyJunk’s sound is unique – to quote Tony D – “we respect the traditions of Roots music and then give it a modern approach”. We’ve been lucky enough to have them play Blues On The Rideau @ The Cove 3X in the past and Steve Marriner has performed here separately a number of times as well. They never fail to deliver a fantastic show. If you haven’t seen them before be prepared to be blown away. Be sure to bring you dancing shoes!
“Like a well-oiled machine ….an unyielding display of soulful blues rock robustness… a tenacious trio gifted with an arsenal of instrumental ability.”
