It all began in 1998 with 3 people who had met on men’s retreat weekend. They first got together to provide music ministry for a wedding ceremony.

They provide music ministry for wedding ceremonies and church services. They also entertain at family celebrations, church and community socials, fundraisers, local fairs, community events and dances, and the homes for the elderly.

A portion of entertainment and ministry proceeds is distributed to needy causes such as clean drinking water, mission feeding and housing for the poor and other individual needy situations.

Moondog Howlers 2016

October 29, 2016


Band: Moondog Howlers
Release: (CD) Self Titled.
Year: 2016
Genre: Blues
Home: Chatham-Kent Ontario Canada
Buy: Currently available at Aug’s video in Chatham & Blenheim. Look on iTunes, shortly.

Mike Copley – Vocals
Alex Polowick (Aug) – Guitar
Dwayne Purdy: Bass
Mark Tremblay – Keyboards
Rick Chrysler – Drums

Notes: Formerly known as the local blues cover band ‘Blues on the Rocks’, the name change comes with the release of this original release. The guys have been honing their craft on the live scene locally for many years. This line-up of some of the most talented and well rooted musicians in the local scene for decades, comes together seemingly effortlessly. Without going into the  individually rich members bio’s, it is safe to say that this release is everything you would expect to stand side by side with a major label blues album.

Kelly “Mr. Chill” Hoppe – Harmonica (Track 7,9,13).
Kelly Authier – Backing vocals (Track 1&3).
