IRREVERENTS - A lethal blend of contagious power-pop rock exploding with thunder, Irreverents' guitar, bass, and vocal prowess combine into a juggernaut that scored them a spot as a CFOX Seeds finalist. Combining energized power rock, hip hop influences and funky rhythms with a punk feel and maniacal urges, tha band has been burning up the Vancouver scene and has been favorably compared with System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters, Megadeth, Rush, and Motley Crue. The band endeavors to show their depth and strives to deliver their unique lethal blend live!

MAD SHADOW - Electric, charged and explosive, Mad Shadow features guitarist Danny Sveinson, who many have exclaimed will be one of the next great rock guitar legends. Bringing the thunder of heavy '70s rock into the new millennium, Mad Shadow leave crowds speechless with their style, energy and obvious talent. The combination of Danny's hook-laden riffs, singer Erik Olufson's charismatic, one-of-a-kind stage presence and the fist-pounding rhythms provided by bassist Tyler Lindgrin and drummer Josh McDonald never fail to leave the crowd wanting more. The depth of these rockers' ability to break out, sending Danny into blistering solos and jaw-dropping jams of their best known songs, is sure to drop you right in the middle of the rock and roll inferno that is Mad Shadow.

MIDNIGHT LIGHTNING Hendrix Tribute - The pure musical genius of JIMI HENDRIX made him one of the most influential guitarists ever in modern music. Self-taught and left-handed, he played with a right-handed Fender Stratocaster turned upside down and restrung, and his use of the Strat's tremelo bar was one of the signature elements of his blues-influenced style of rock music. He perfected the deliberate use of distortion and feedback to complement his natural virtuoso ability, all the while exuding unequaled charisma, raw talent, and creativity to deliver some of the most revolutionary music of the 20th Century. Be sure to come out and take in the timeless music of Jimi Hendrix this special evening, as Midnight Lightning featuring MIKE ZYKE Of The Unknown Soldiers Doors Tribute, deliver their loving tribute to the raucous and anthemic Hendricx experience!

The AFTERTASTE - With a perfect blend of savage guitars, melody, scathing lyrics and fantastic 3-minute pop arrangements, The Aftertaste are four Vancouver musicians looking to leave modern rock shirtless, penniless and begging for more by the side of the road. Acid-soaked blues and high octane power pop are put through the grinder and spat out as demented tales of substance abuse, sexual deviancy and love gone seriously wrong. Stories of excess and schizophrenia somehow become irresistible singalongs when wrapped in the infectious riffs and melodies spun out by the foursome.
