Monkey Majik (typeset as MONKEY MAJIK) is a Japanese-Canadian pop rock band formed in 2000 in Sendai. The band currently consists of Canadian brothers, Maynard Plant and Blaise Plant, each acting as lead vocalists and guitarists, as well as two Japanese members: tax on drums, and DICK on bass. Monkey Majik is currently signed to Binyl Records, a subsidiary of Avex Records, and are managed by Edwards Entertainment Group. Due to the natural blend of both Eastern and Western pop rock influences, Monkey Majik has often been referred to as a "hybrid band". Much of the band's music has been cross-promoted via television programs, commercials, and movies. They have also been chosen as “Goodwill Ambassadors” for the 80th anniversary of Japanese-Canadian relations.
