WHITEY ignores boundaries and reservations, delivering a songwriting approach that has been described as "anything goes!" Bringing a little bit of everything to their sound: ska, metal, rock and even a touch of ballads to their energized live shows, the band has toured from coast to coast, playing in every type of venue from bakeries to haylofts, from middle school gyms to unforgettable Lions/Kinsmen Hall punk shows with such artists as DOA, The Tea Party, Stabilo and Holly McNarland.

The HARVEST - Spawned in Victoria, The Harvest quickly relocated to Vancouver after realizing that sandalwood and politics weren't in the cards for them. Their sound is a mix of punk ethics, D.I.Y. personality and genuine passion for great music in a variety of styles from hard rock to blues and ska. While maintaining a steady regiment of songwriting, recording, shows and rehearsals, they've now opened a new home base in their own Aurora Studios where they're currently finishing work on their forthcoming second CD.

The PERFECT TREND believe in making meaningful songs that never use the same formula twice -- honest music that spans all genres and is open to anything and everything. "It's unpredictable what we do live. We've brought Nintendos on stage, jumped off side walls and other bands' drum sets, and have had dance-offs with the crowd. Whether it be having a female vocalist guest with us, or a song that's full of double-kicking mayhem and screaming, or acoustic bridges and funk-filled choruses, there's no limits or boundaries." With over 100 shows under their belt, the Perfect Trend are mature in sound and are working hard every day to make their message heard.

If it’ll make your body move, Whitey will play it. Sporting some of mainland BC’s most talented and sought-after musicians, Whitey’s members can also be found melting ... more info

The Harvest (Candy-coated chops cut with a hard card)

The west coast meets New York at the crossroads somewhere around Detroit. We are a 4 piece original rock band with more hooks than a tackle box. more info

The Perfect Trend (Alternative)

Honest music. It spans all genres, and is open to anything and everything. And thats The Perfect Trend. A wise person once said, "We are nothing without diversity", and this ode is apparant throughout the band's debut 10 song cd, "Static and Dialtone". Its sometimes hard to believe that the same band is playing from song to song, and yet, and t... more info
