The Wheat Kings are the ultimate tribute to "The Tragically Hip." They have enjoyed tremendous success with clubs, colleges, festivals, and Universities throughout Canada and the United States. Since the bands inception in the spring of 1994, The Wheat Kings have delivered rock n' roll with the same energy, style, and sound as the Hip themselves giving audiences exactly what they came to feel and hear.
The band formed when five professional Toronto area musicians realized that audiences couldn't get enough Hip. In an interview with Toronto Life Magazine, Todd the lead singer is quoted as saying "I have a Great time up there," and in a nutshell, this echoes the outlook of the entire group. With five years of continuous success and consistently exciting perfomances, The Wheat Kings will remain the ultimate tribute.
