JACKFRUIT - Former band members of Slow Nerve Action, Blue Quarter, Duran Duran Duran, SNA & Trip have formed a new super power group known as JACKFRUIT. Monster bass lines lurch around every smooth, molten piano roll taunting limbs to get up and get moving. Forging jazz, two-ton funk, drum n'bass, and a maelstrom of motormouth lyrics, Jackfruit has broken ties from genres and classifications that separate music by creating their own unique concoction that's too mind-blowing to pigeonhole. http://www.jackfruitmusic.com

OR-GAN'IK - Get ready for the Organik Revolution, four brothers from Vancouver, BC who create mind blowing clever & pure soulful music. Blending hip-hop & R&B sounds and styles with pop-rock songwriting sensibilities, Organik have taken the music of classic acts like Sly Stone, Dr. Dre, Jimi Hendrix and Run DMC, tossed it into a blender, and created a sexy stylish fresh sound. Their high-energy live performances continually wow audiences and have them on their feet, with their bodies grooving with primal urgency and infectious party vibes. Organik will blow you away. The Organik Revolution has arrived. Don't miss it. http://www.organiktheband.com

MATTHEW MEI - Having traveled the world as the son of a preacher man, Matt's initial introduction to the world of music was his dads classical, old blues and folk records, but it was his struggles in life and his soulful growth that fueled his desire to write emotional and heartfelt songs. Matt teamed up with Jonathan Anderson (Jonathan Inc.) at Buena Vista Studios to create a thoughtful album that showcased some of his favorite songs he had written over the years. Be sure to join Matt tonight to hear songs from his newest CD release, "Contribution to Sound", a solid rock/folk excursion with bluesy undertones, hip hop beats and a most welcome retreat from the current atmosphere of commercial and trite ready-made music. http://www.matthewmei.com

MADISON'S PANIC - And then suddenly out of nowhere comes a sound never heard before - it resonates with a melody, complexity, and aura so brilliant that the heart cannot help but blame the mind. The mind just smiles and nods... armed with an array of strings, Madison's Panic combine acoustic rock with intense emotion and raw musical energy. The versatile group's sound resonates with melody, complexity and heart with an intense unique mixture of punk, ballad and classical composition creating fresh new classics at every turn. http://www.madisonspanic.com

COLIN PEARSON - Hailing from Prince George, this former Port Moody resident recently opened for Matthew Good. His solid songwriting, influenced by artists like NOFX, Bright Eyes & Matthew Good, landed him a highly sought-after showcase spot in this summer's Folkquest Festival. You can expect Colin to showcase his sweet, mellow sound and punk attitude in tunes peppered with plenty of anti-establishment sentiments. http://www.colinpearson.com
