JACKFRUIT - Former band members of Slow Nerve Action, Blue Quarter, Duran Duran Duran, SNA & Trip have formed a new super power group known as Jackfruit. Monster bass lines lurch around every smooth, molten piano roll taunting limbs to get up and get moving. Forging jazz, two-ton funk, drum n'bass, and a maelstrom of motormouth lyrics, Jackfruit has broken ties from genres and classifications that separate music by creating their own unique concoction that's too mind-blowing to pigeonhole. http://www.jackfruitmusic.com

MATTHEW MEI (aka The PREACHER'S SON & YOU BRIGHT MINDS) - Having traveled the world as the son of a preacher man, Matt's initial introduction to the world of music was his dads classical, old blues and folk records, but it was his struggles in life and his soulful growth that fueled his desire to write emotional and heartfelt songs. Matt teamed up with Jonathan Anderson (Jonathan Inc.) at Buena Vista Studios to create a thoughtful album that showcased some of his favorite songs he had written over the years. Be sure to join Matt tonight to hear songs from his newest CD release, "Contribution to Sound", a solid rock/folk excursion with bluesy undertones, hip hop beats and a most welcome retreat from the current atmosphere of commercial and trite ready-made music. http://www.matthewmei.com

MADISON'S PANIC - And then suddenly out of nowhere comes a sound never heard before, resonating with a melody, complexity, and aura so brilliant that the heart cannot help but blame the mind. The mind just smiles and nods... armed with an array of strings, Madison's Panic combine acoustic rock with intense emotion and raw musical energy. Their versatile sound resonates with melody, complexity and heart through an intensely unique mixture of punk, pop and classical composition creating fresh new classics at every turn. http://myspace.com/madisonspanic

iDEOGRAM creates funky, humorous, atmospheric and at times frantic grooves and soundscapes through a process of group improvisation. Together they concoct a memorable, thoroughly unique mish mash of old school funk, jazz, Latin, electronica, classical and psychedelic rock that will result in frenzied dancing, or at least wild head bobbing. http://myspace.com/ideogram

Jackfruit (Organic Jazz Groove)

“Mary! Mother of God! Is that for real?” This might be your standard reaction upon seeing a group of nuns playing skeeball with grapes and hockey pucks. But, after hearing the wizardry of Jackfruit with it’s perfect solution of monster bass lines, supple drumbeats and molten piano rolls, it’s definitely the only response.

Madison's Panic (Acoustic)

Vancouver, British Columbia has spawned many songwriters and bands that have left their imprint on the music industry. However none have attempted what Madison's Panic are currently creating. Combining acoustic rock, syncopated elements of punk and ballad, then painting over the creation with the brush of classical composition, Madison's Panic are ... more info

iDeogRam (jazzfunkfusion)

iDeogRam is a jazz-funk-fusion five-piece band inspired by rock, electronica and classic jazz. These teens push the envelope, fusing their varied backgrounds and musical personalities to create magical soundscapes, relaxed grooves and, at times, quirky musical jokes verging on cacophony. Some of their diverse influences include Frank Zappa, Herbie ... more info
