Come celebrate the release of the new Barnaby Jones EP "Handshake for a Heart EP 2" (second in a triple series of 3 track EPs), joined by stellar local talents Black Sugar, Lamontasaurus & The Track Arrows at legendary live music venue The Railway Club!

BARNABY JONES - With 2 independant releases now under their belt, Barnaby Jones offers catchy, up-tempo melodic rock with elements of funk, soul and an inherent sense of humor. Their songs feel comfortable and familiar, but surprise every time with vocals and guitars that often reach a feverish pace by the end of a track you could have sworn was a slow-jam when it started. Whether they’re drifting along in dreamy instrumental territory or sonically blasting your face off, Barnaby Jones instantly conjures up the beautiful mess of our day-to-day grind with jobs, families, friends and lovers.

BLACK SUGAR is a refreshingly exciting band among the latest crop of intelligent and imaginative hard-rock hopefuls emerging from Vancouver's bountiful music scene. Powered by the winning charisma and multi-octaved Cornellian pipes of lead singer Rob Krys, Black Sugar carves out a gripping and unique blend of prog-fusion chops and funk-tinged hard rock.

The TRACK ARROWS - In the early 20th Century, the traqueros laid down shiny, steel tracks for the fledgling American railway system. In the early 21st Century, The Track Arrows honour these blue-collar heroes by laying down shiny, rail-inspired musical tracks for the flourishing Vancouver music scene. It is hard, dirty, and sometimes dangerous work that requires strong harmonizing and iron-clad rhythm.

LAMONTASAURUS - Mixing elements of rock, funk, country, pop and an all star cast of members from local bands such as The Unknown Soldiers, Themasses, Slow Nerve Action and Red Eye Empire, you never know what you'll get from this act. The brain child of keyboardist/guitarist Ian Lamont (Jackfruit, Kill City Kids), Lamontasaurus is influenced by Waylon, synths, vegetables, the weather, people, strangeness & fuzz.
