THE MANVILS - This talented quartet delivers an intense, unrivalled live show with scorching guitars and bellowing vocals that merge into a modern take on the psychedelic blues sound pioneered by The Yardbirds, Velvet Underground and the Stones. Having shared the stage with prestigious bands including The Stereophonics, The High Dials, They Might Be Giants and Brian Jonestown Massacre's lunatic frontman Anton Newcombe, The Manvils enthusiastically abandon themselves to intoxicating rock liberation, converting new initiates to their ever-growing legion of fans every time they take the stage. http://www.themanvils.com

SAVILE ROW - With their name taken from the address of the Beatles' last concert ever, Savile Row's subterranean, multi-faceted rock'n'roll vibrates through your senses and implants itself in your mind. Formed in the dreary suburbs of Vancouver, their fiery dark British Rock sound is a collection of observant thoughts intertwined with universal emotions that compel the listener, while sustaining the melodic hooks. The band recently began recording their debut EP "Evolution of Truth" with producer Jon Schubert (Last Gang Records, Panurge). http://myspace.com/SavileRow

MIDNIGHT DRAGON - With influences ranging from Burt Reynolds, Tanner (from the original Bad News Bears), mid-period Peter Fonda and fav albums that include Crazy Horse (self-titled), Black Oak Arkansas (Raunch 'N' Roll) and The Four Horsemen, the kick ass compadries of Midnight Dragon deliver searing rock'n'roll vocals and riffage. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=65467586
