About:

Considered one of the best punk bands in Canada at this time, Choke are known for their innovative style and intriguing musical sense. They create music that can only be classified by their dedication and love for it.

Combining influences from jazz to punk to metal and more, Choke fosters a sound that is uniquely their own. It is a refreshing extension of the punk music that has influenced their song writing over the last 8 years. Since their inception in 1994, with original members Jack Jaggard, Clay Shea, Shawn Moncrieff and Stefan Levasseur, Choke have toured Canada and the USA non–stop and have established a reputation for their groundbreaking music and intense live shows.
