BIG JOHN BATES has caught the attention of Quentin Tarantino and Jello Biafra by spinning dark cabaret, rustic blues and alternative country into a sound that can be described as Americana Noir. With over 1000 live shows under his belt, John's gruff baritone and blues-driven Gretsch mixes with bandmate Brandy Bones' unhinged soprano and spell-binding presence, their compelling stage chemistry and blinding intensity riveting audiences throughout North America and Europe.

The WAGES OF SIN play traditional music for non-traditionalists. They mix Celtic and country with Appalachian and rockabilly, Tex-Mex and bluegrass, following the whole mess with a bracing shot of punk rock. Alternately rowdy and mournful, they're sure to get your feet tapping, your heart palpitating, and your liver crying for mercy. Repent, ye sinners, and be saved!

CORNSHED - A blend of East Coast, folk, and bluegrass with the tempo and driving force of a punk band makes Vancouver's Cornshed a stomping, rabble-rousing, "forget about your next day of work" experience. Back to the roots is the simplest way to put it, and the boot stompin’ tunes these guys play get everyone dancing. With an undeniable fire burning in their belly, Cornshed are about to bring the dead back to life.
