Blues / Rock (Toronto, ON)
The Focklers are a blues band based out of the GTA and London. In May of 2015, the three Fockler’s 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, and Keys Andrew Fockler – Drums Daniel Fockler – Rhythm Guitar Mat Power – Bass Since then, we have played countless shows all over the GTA and London, and we are looking forward to releasing our debut EP in the coming months. Our hard work is paying off, as we were given the opportunity to open for David Wilcox at the London Music Hall May 13. This was very exciting for us, and we are proud to see how far we have come along as a group in just one year. With the recent resurgence of blues and soul music (Leon Bridges, Gary Clark Jr, etc), the timing feels right, and we are eager for people to hear our take on the genre.
