Tony D (Diteodoro), guitarist for Juno award winning band MonkeyJunk has been laying it down for over thirty years. MonkeyJunk has amassed twenty Maple Blues awards and a Blues Music Award, (formerly known as The Handy Awards).

At the age of thirteen Tony began his musical journey on the guitar. Learning mostly in the blues, rock jazz stylings. From Muddy Waters, to Jimi Hendrix to Jimmy Page, to Albert King to Wes Montgomery and all the points in between.

At 19, lead guitarist Tony D performed for three nights in Buddy Guy’s band and in 1982, he opened for Stevie Ray Vaughan. He has also toured with some of this country’s greatest musicians, including the late Dutch Mason. In the early nineties having taken a trip to Europe and securing a record deal out of Holland, Tony became one of the first Canadian blue musician to tour Europe.
The Blues and anything that falls under that umbrella being his first love, but Tony D has also explored various forms of music. Flamenco became another obsession and after studying the form for two yearshe joined a troupe which made him write pseudo flamenco and Spanish rhythm instrumentals which hestill plays today in his solo shows.

Joining Tony will be Mary Gellner on drums and Joe Hawkins on Bass

From the delta to the desert it all comes from places of devotion, musical devotion. “Basically, I’m like Lightnin’ Hopkins with an electric guitar” Tony D
