Greg Drummond Band
“If you haven’t heard him already, it’s about time you prepared for the rhythms of this particular west coast artist. Already his distinguishable voice has begun carving a path, bringing him and those who follow ever closer to national recognition.” More info: http://www.gregdrummond.com/
“Smart song writing, punishing dual guitars, and a hammer down rhythm section make up the formula for Rocket Science. Musical expression without any limits set by style or genre. With music characterized by infectious grooves, strong melodic motifs, extended improvisations and musical interplay”…you don’t want to miss this group. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Rocket-Science/319353251496126
John Pippus Band
”…acoustic soul-folk, rough and ready blues. Finger picking, open tunings, harmonica and vocals that are real.” More info: http://www.johnpippus.com/
“Trevor Murrayʼs baritone vocals and catchy songs set him apart from the competition. His British Columbia raising and positive outlook on life, make him an instant favourite in the Canadian country community. Trevor’s the kind of artist who makes you want to dance, sing and forget about your troubles for a while.” More info: http://trevor-murray.com/
“Born and raised in small town Pitt Meadows on her family dairy farm makes singing country music an obvious choice for DaniElle. This singer, songwriter and John Deere tractor driver is a natural talent”
