Biography

JUKE is a Melodic hard rock trio based in Toronto, Canada featuring the incredible guitar work of MIKE JUKE. Along with solid bassist RICK ZAIDA and thunderous drummer CHRIS LEWIS, these musicians have a wealth of experience that shows in every note played. With melodic riffs, emotional guitar solos, and a tight dynamic rhythm section, JUKE brings forth "A New Beginning".

Playing together since high school, Mike and Rick have toured all over Canada in many different groups while continuing to write songs together. CHRIS has also been touring extensively with many bands including the popular Canadian band Rampage. Collectively they have been involved with shows featuring Doro, Anvil, Saxon, Budgie, Michael Schenker Group and many others.

In 2004, after recording a four song demo, the newly named JUKE went out on tour as the support act for classic rockers Moxy and finished up with a spot on the Trooper tour. JUKE caught the attention of a visiting disc jockey from CFUR, and upon his return home to Prince George, British Columbia, he began playing their demo in heavy rotation. A strong fan base has resulted there.

In 2006 after a couple of years of touring, JUKE recorded their debut full length CD entitled A NEW BEGINNING at Metalworks Recording Studios. With heavily sought after engineer Darius Szczepaniak (Sum 41, Barenaked Ladies, Big Sugar), the result is a powerful, vibrant and compelling CD.

With their first single 'RENEGADE', this is A NEW BEGINNING indeed...
