THE HATHAWAYS originally formed in Uranium City, SK in 1984 for the express purpose of performing the annual Pygmy Paizley Post-Punk Anti-Pop Wedding Party in Vancouver, BC. Recently reformed after a 27 year hiatus, the band has been deeply immersed in rehearsals at a secret facility in Prince Albert and are not only ready for their long anticipated reintroduction into society, they're readier than ever, and, ready to RUMBLE!

Since 1998, the rockabilly-tinged surf-fury of THE REVERBERATORS has been known to incite involuntary hip shaking and spontaneous limbo competitions in and around Vancouver. No injuries have been reported. So far. Uniquely, the band has always featured the same instrumental line-up, but with different members on sax and bass duties throughout the years. The band’s third album, El Burro, released in 2009, features Francis Chopper Sivertz (Deadcats, Little Guitar Army) on guitar, Frank Nichols on drums, Pat Darcus on bass, and Ron Froelich on tenor sax, with guests Micheal Flunkert on lap steel guitar and Sandy Benson on trumpet. Stretch beforehand—and get ready for a limbo throw down!

Having collectively performed at countless concerts, festivals, community halls, night clubs, pubs, speakeasies, fund raisers, hullabaloos, shindigs, social functions and barn dances, the members of STILL CREEK bring a diverse and eclectic wealth of musical experience to the stage. Featuring Greg Hathaway (Roots Roundup, Dubfreque) on vocals, guitar and harmonica, Mark Campbell (Roots Roundup, Dubfreque, Idle Peasantry) on guitar and vocals, Nick Hatzisavvas (The Sweaters, Honey) on bass and vocals, James Phillips (Sound Pressure Manifest, Lead Pipe Cinch) on keys and vocals, and Eien Hunter-Ishikawa (Robert Hohner Percussion Ensemble, Kenny Endo Taiko Ensemble) behind the kit. Their primary objective is to attract as many shufflin', swinging, stompin' and dancing feet onto the floor as possible!
