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. Due to the natural blend of both Eastern and Western pop rock influences, MONKEY MAJIK has often been referred to as a "hybrid band".
