Dune Rats

We here at Alt-Rock Radio CJKP-DB find it quite fitting that 2020 is the “Year of the Rat” because once this COVID-19 situation has cleared. One of our favourite groups is set to have a massively successful year…and that is our April 2020 (4/20) Artist of the month……. The Dune Rats!

Hopefully all clears soon enough and we can all enjoy a Dunies show in our respective cities.

Who:   Dune Rats

Danny Beus – Guitar and lead vocals
BC Michael Marks – Drums and backing vocals
Brett Jansch (The Vines, Red Riders) – Bass


A fun lovin’ trio who are here for a good time…and a long time.
With songs that are catchy, hilarious, fast rockin’ and perfectly executed pure joy. 



Right here on Alt-Rock Radio CJKP-DB!

Every Day at 9:00AM  EST and 5:00PM EST for all of April 2020 at the start and end of your work day.

Their music makes us happy and will make you happy too.
These 3 guys are having lots of fun making plenty of great music.

Their newest release “Hurry up and Wait” on BMG Canada is filled with hit after hit, which will be spinning til our ears fall off.

Not only is this album a lyrical and musical beauty…The vinyl is visually stunning.

If you like songs about the good times, the bad times and all the drugs you could ever dream of…you might just love the Dune Rats.
