Biography

Hokus Pick (or Hokus Pick Manouver) is a Christian pop/rock band that was together from 1989 to 1999. The four members of Hokus Pick met in Vancouver, British Columbia. Hokus Pick was well known for their quirky sense of humor, using sarcasm, satire, and general silliness to convey a deeper message.[1] On an episode of the television show Video Zone, they once introduced themselves as Petra’s grandchildren. Hokus Pick toured extensively in Canada and the United States. The band opened for Steve Taylor’s Squinternational tour in 1994[1] and played in Costa Rica in May of 1998. They released their final album in 1999, opting to spend more time with their families after over a decade of recording and touring together.

The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Christian Music cites their song “I’m So Happy” as possibly the Greatest CCM song of all time.[1] The song is a satire of simplistic lyrics often heard on Christian radio.[1] It received heavy rotation on Christian stations.[1]

In October 2007, Hokus Pick received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Canadian Gospel Music Association at the 29th Annual Covenant Awards in Calgary, Alberta.
