HOT BREAKFAST - If you're thirsting for action and adventure, or know someone who seeks thrills and mysteries, then you can learn a lot from HOT BREAKFAST, a handsome posse of surf rock reggae cowboys who appreciate the rising sun and the pounding surf.

The SKATOMATICS - Selling out local Vancouver venues on a regular basis, The Skatomatics will draw you irresistibly to your feet with their blend of 4/4 time and a brass section. Featuring former members of Edmonton's Mad Bomber Society and Halifax ska pioneers Dr. Skankworthy, The Skatomatics bonded over their shared love for bands like The Police, Sublime, The Clash and King Apparatus. http://www.skatomatics.com

MATTHEW MEI AND 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. http://www.matthewmei.com

The GENTLE INFIDELS offer progressive folk-rock songs in the vein of Jeff Buckley, acoustic Zeppelin, Pentangle, Fairport Convention, Incredible String Band, Jeff Martin, Roy Harper, you know, that sort of thing. Very cool acoustic guitar, upright bass & cello. The moodchild of songwriter/guitarist/luthier/archer Ed Bond, the Gentle Infidels were formed in November 2006 as a trio with fretless bassist Ferdy Belland and cellist Chris Rzepa. Their music is honestly emotional, delivering dark subject matter with striking power that seperates them from most modern folk-rock acts. Able to perform with a wide variety of musicians and artists, the Gentle Infidels are a band for all seasons... even if they do bring a touch of winter to your sunny summer's day. http://www.myspace.com/gentleinfidels
