Hit the Highway with Chuck & Danny’s Road Trip Playlist

Chef Chuck Hughes and Chef Danny Smiles, tight friends in and out of the kitchen, hit the highway seeking great Canadian food and good times in Food Network Canada’s Chuck & Danny’s Road Trip, premiering March 3rd.


On the road, they meet folks who care about food as much as they do, and cook up epic celebratory feasts for their new friends. This trip of a lifetime comes complete with a killer soundtrack of eight great Canadian bands adding their music to Chuck and Danny’s adventure. It doesn’t surprise us at all that Chuck Hughes’s latest show has such a stellar music line up. His Food Network Canada series Chuck’s Day Off also featured an amazing soundtrack, his Instagram (@chefchuckhughes) is peppered with music festival pics, and for the last seven years he and Danny Smiles have fed the music elite that play Montreal’s Osheaga Arts and Music Festival.


Tokyo Police Club adds three songs to the Chuck & Danny’s Road Trip soundtrack including “Boots of Danger (Wait Up)”, the raucous theme song to the show. “Young Leaves” by Attack in Black is a gem of a road trip tune. Wintersleep, originally from Halifax but who now call Montreal home, add “Santa Fe” from their latest album The Great Detachment.  The soundtrack also features the melancholy voice of City and Colour, heavy Hamilton-rockers Monster Truck, the hook-laden styles of Vancouver’s Yukon Blonde, the shimmering sounds of Twist, and a Stevie Wonder-influenced K-OS track “Dance In Yo Car.”

Take these bands along on your next adventure – or even  on your Monday morning commute. Listen to the show soundtrack on Spotify.
