About The Band

A Brief History...

Based out of London, Ontario, The Joel Dupuis Band is an electrifying three piece band that gives an energetic performance, and a straight shot of pure, no filler, rocking blues in the form of soulful originals as well as an original take on old favourites.

At just 21 years of age, Joel Dupuis has played all over the Southern Ontario music scene as well as Festivals in Thorold, Toronto, Kincardine, London, and St. Thomas to name a few. He has shared the stage with the likes of Scott Holt (current lead singer and guitarist of Foghat), The Cashbox Kings (Chicago Blues Band tours US, Europe, Canada, top 10 blues album of the year 2017), JW-Jones (2020 IBC Winner, and JUNO Nominee) and Pat Harrington (Victor Wainwright and The Train, Grammy nominee). 

Holding down the low end, on the bass guitar, we have Marc Shickluna. Marc has been with the Joel Dupuis Band since August 2022. With an estudious approach and an unwavering THUMP, we're glad to have him.

On the Drums, we have Glenn Kitchen. Glenn has been with the band since June 2021. With a thunderous approach to the drums and over 30 years of live playing experience, he adds a massive presence and keeps everyone tight and in check.

Together, The Joel Dupuis Band is an experience, delivering an unforgettable live show that you won’t want to miss.
