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.

The SICKS - Voted Vancouver's 3rd Best Unsigned Band in the 2009 Georgia Straight Readers Choice Awards, The Sicks' distinct, memorable songs capture a simple, positive sound that makes audiences get up and move. Two guitarists trade licks in a style reminiscent of the Stones, and each song is infused with Animal-worthy drums and steady bass chops that draw from reggae and rock. With meaningful lyrics that relate to everyday experiences and soulful vocals that convey raw power and energy, their diverse backgrounds and influences forge a rootsy pop sound that can really be put in a class by itself.

The CHASE strives to show that retro rock doesn't have to sound like something you've already heard. With great songs, an energetic, charismatic stage presence and an innovative sound that is as original as it is classic, they've quickly proven themselves a force to be reckoned with in the Vancouver music scene. Anyone who sees their live show will recognize that they are the real deal and know that nothing can get in their way. The Chase is on!

The SWILLS - Combining killer heavy riffs with catchy melodies, kick-ass rhythms, and songs that actually have something to say, The Swills are the perfect solution to the mundane modern rock blues!
