The CARNIVAL BAND is a community music project with ten years of history, based out of Commercial Drive's Britannia Community Centre. With a floating membership of around 30 people playing brass, woodwinds, accordions, percussion and stringed instruments, their monstrous repertoire includes samba, calypso, swing, afrobeat, jazz, funk, disco and traditional music from around the globe. They've played around the globe including Shanghai and a spontaneous performance in London, England that lead to the internet phenomenon of "Traffic Wardens Need Love", based around a YouTube video of the Carnival Band serenading traffic wardens. Their music is grounded in both collaboration and empowerment to all involved. http://www.myspace.com/thecarnivalband

MINOTAUR is the wacky brain child of three musical minds pulling from three different backgrounds to create a sonic assault that could change music forever. By mixing jazz, metal, funk, rock, classical and just about everything else you can imagine together, this group creates a sound like no other that is beyond classification. From bone crunching grooves and mind boggling melodies to perfect harmony and chaos there is no ground left uncovered and no note left unheard. Sure to give you a fresh perspective on instrumental music and warp your brain forever, Minotaur must be seen to be believed. http://www.myspace.com/minotauremusic

MEXICAN DRUG PATROL - Formerly known as The HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS, Mexican Drug Patrol brings blazing electric desert surf rock to the clubs of Vancouver. The guitars of James Elwood and Ben Fussell do the talking, backed up by Tony Dallas on drums. The band is hard at work recording their first album, which will be stuffed to the gills with original instrumental rock tunes. http://www.myspace.com/mexicandrugpatrol
