SWANK delivers an unholy alliance of rock, country, soul, gospel, blues and punk styles that go together like moonshine and mason jars, preaching and sinning, Vegas and vice. A featured artist at the 2010 Winter Olympics, their glorious mayhem has earned them a loyal fan base on both sides of the Atlantic in the wake of regular hometown shows and two memorable tours of the UK and Ireland. Swank's raucous shows combine truly original songs with choice covers from greats such as Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, serving the very finest in high-octane, foot-stomping barroom belligerence that inhabits the lawless borderlands between Americana, punk and rock & roll.

The BONE DADDIES have created a new sound that is familiar and yet distinctively unique, taking influences from a wide variety of musical genres including ska, reggae, swing, jazz, rockabilly and punk. Moving dance floors with their newly fused sound, they present a musical momentum that is hard not to get swept up in.

The LIQUOR KINGS are a dynamic Vancouver rock band with notoriously entertaining live shows and a powerhouse brand of high energy rock & roll. Together they collectively bring decades of performance and musical experience to the table to produce a fun, fast paced, no holds barred sound that encourages audiences to get up and party like they mean it!

The MILK PIPES - Sounding like a ’63 Impala comin’ sideways around a corner on two wheels, The Milk Pipes always drop the hammer on their original tunes with a joyful and reckless abandon. Tube amps and classic guitars slash against the solid punch of a rhythm section born to serve the song while keys and ukes underpin the whole cacophony with delicious counter melodies.

Swank's first album, "Pappy's Corn Squeezins" (2001) was conceived by the band to sound like The Ramones playing Johnny Cash. Produced by Howard Redekopp, the album was described by the legendary Ray Condo as "New Wave Country"-an apt description for a fine debut that holds its own to this day. The group's second album "The Survival Issue" (2004... more info
