The Focklers are a blues band based out of the GTA and London. In May of 2015, the three Focklers all landed the same summer job together, and decided to get the band back in motion. A few months later, bass player and honorary Fockler, Mat Power was added to the band.
Patrick Fockler – Lead Vocal, Guitar, & Keys
Andrew Fockler – Drums
Daniel Fockler – Rhythm Guitar
Mat Power – Bass
The Focklers’ frontman, Patrick Fockler, is the driving force behind the band. His influences and relentless study of his craft can be seen first hand at any of our shows. His charisma and passion for the blues is rooted deep, and this honesty is what keeps people coming back wanting more.
Opening up for the likes of Blues Legends David Wilcox, and The Edgar Winter Group this past year in London, it’s safe to say that we are motivated now more than ever to continue pursuing our passion for music. We will be forever grateful for the opportunities given to us in such a short period of time as a band, and we are looking forward to tackling 2017 head on.
With the recent resurgence of blues and soul music, the timing feels right, and we are eager for people to hear our take on the genre. What is that take you ask? Allow us to explain..
Visualize yourself on the dock at the cottage, sun’s out, you’ve got the weekend off, and you just cracked your first tall can. How tasty was that? That’s what The Focklers sound like. They sound like something you haven’t had in a while, and immediately want more of. A refreshing blues sound, with an uncanny ability to put a smile on your face. These aren’t just any ol’ Focklers. These boys get right into the tunes and give it everything they’ve got.
Come catch a live show, and look out for our debut EP coming soon!
