Next Church Band
We are campy & contagious, with strong threads of dancing naked in a kingly procession, making joyful noise out soul, funk, and r&b. Featuring Josh Lyon on keys and vocals, Brendan Lorimer on guitar and vocals, Joel Williams on bass, and Andrew Cardiff on drums.
Songwriting is not for the faint of heart. The world rattles our psyches’, jarring us into states of frenzied angst, dissolution and musical explosions, while whispering ‘hope’ through the trees and rippling through clear blue lakes of the Canadian Shield. Andy is driven by elusive sounds of peace in a tumultuous world and the belief that music is life!
Dan Doesn’t Sleep
Since 2012, Dan Steele has been bringing his brand of dopeness to the hip hop heads of Ontario and beyond. From studio to stage, he never ceases to elude and exceed what is common and expected. Smooth vocals over odd, self-produced beats have landed him in the Top 10 Hip-Hop Albums on national college radio chart 4 times
The Wedding Crashers
Formed ad hoc to perform, unrehearsed, for our friend’s wedding, it went – needless to say – pretty well! This experienced band all have too many local collaborations to list. They are Paul Stos (guitar and vocals), Mark Taras (guitar and vocals) , Chris Jackson (bass and vocals) and Jeff Salmon (drums, percussion, and shutdown D man).
Ianspotting is a vibrant reggae influenced band hailing from Kingston, Ontario. To define Ianspotting’s sound… Is a good question; the title of the bands first release, but also a good answer when one is to question the genre they fit in to. You could say they have influences of reggae and rock resulting in a punchy eclectic sound, with four part harmonies that energize listeners from start to finish. The concept of the music is grooving energetic tones and intelligently constructed lyrics. In their 10 years together Ianspotting has become a recognizable name in Kingstons diverse music scene which has produced many artists including Sarah Harmer and the Tragically Hip. Ianspotting is dubbed “Kingston’s reggae sensation” by Allen Neil of CBC Radio.
This is pure psychedelic R&B music that spikes the punch and drowns your third eye in sonic waves of colour. The three-piece consists of members from Kitchener, Guelph & Texas, forming during the winter of 2016 and operating out of Kingston. Next Show: May 15, 2017 @ Horseshoe Tavern, Toronto.
