Who is performing?
Utilizing a loop pedal, guitar, saxophone, along with a few percussion instruments and his voice, Alex Maher creates lush layers and complex harmonies all with a driving rhythm that makes you want to move. With a foundation in jazz, Alex’s music fuses hip hop, soul, pop and funk influences.
Alex has had a storied career as a solo performer and as a band member – opening for the likes of Weezer, Wide Mouth Mason, Bachman Cummings, Mother Mother, Sam Roberts, Robert Randolph, and The Proclaimers.
Tumbling into local cult fame, Dominique Fricot’s swoon-worthy baritone ballads and honest lyrics named him the third-place winner in The Peak Performance Project and won him the Shore 104.3’s Best of BC award on September 2012.
His discography blazes a new trail in genre, treading the line between post-brit pop, indie-rock, and folk. With his spellbinding strings, electrically charged vocals, and genuine onstage charisma, it’s impossible not to be charmed by Fricot and the honesty expelled in his music.
Bees and the Bare Bones
Bees and the Bare Bones is the upbeat, quintessential, Canadian, girl-next-door duo, comprised of Madison Olds and Abby Wale. They write across and blur the lines over several genres of music including indie folk/pop and alt-country.
As the 2016 Chevy Tailgate winners, they went to Nashville where they recorded at the Sound Emporium with Brad Stella (the Stellas) and were first introduced to the music industry.
Comprised of twin brothers on guitars, their best friend on bass, and a female drummer that Leo met on a blind date, Coastline Pilot is a West Coast indie-rock band with big sound and even bigger dreams to make their music heard.
Born and bred in Vancouver, BC, Leo, Thomas, Chad and Launey each bring unique musical styles, experience, and inspiration that together creates the feel-good, lyrically-charged tunes that can be found on their 2015 EP, "In Search of New Land," and their highly anticipated upcoming EP that is set for release in late Spring 2017.
Redwoods is a Canadian rock band from Vancouver B.C. The fourpiece was formed in early 2012, and consists of three singers, two guitarists, a bass player and a drummer.
Determined to keep the modern day rock scene alive, the band writes and performs their own original music, from intricate melodies to straight ahead, driving rock and roll.
Andrew Christopher is a Canadian singer-songwriter born and raised in small town Agassiz, BC. Andrew's repertoire has been described as a “truly eclectic mix of contemporary songs” ranging from Tim McGraw to Eminem. His original songs have heavy emphasis on lyrics and the guitar accompaniment is perfectly married with the tranquillity of his voice. His energetic and often humorous live shows, along with a Rock 'n' Roll attitude, intrigues fans to stick around after just one listen. Andrew’s charm and sincerity as a person has kept them coming back for more.
Rossi is a Vancouver based multi-instrumentalist performing on Spanish guitar, Caribbean Steel Drum, and Vocals. His music incorporates a fusion of styles from Spanish Rumbas, Nuevo Flamenco, to Brazilian Jazz and Calypso. Rossi infuses the fiery sound of his Spanish guitar with the subtle and mellow sound of the Caribbean steel drum creating a unique new style that Rossi likes to call Contemporary Caribbean Fusion. Rossi has performed and toured extensively in South Africa, Europe, and North America. He is now based in Vancouver, Canada.
