Caracas was Formed in 2011 by Venezuelan-Canadian brothers Javier and Victor Badillo. CARACAS mixes Latin grooves, fiercely original punk rock into a blistering high-energy live show. Influences include the Pixies, Gogol Bordello, Manu Chao and Santana...with a Venezuelan twist.

The band consists of Magic Mike on guitar and vocals as well as 2 tone Kyle on bass guitar. Big Gord handles the sax while Toby Misconception plays trumpet and sings. Boss Brad is on trombone and Brigz sits behind the drums.

Brehdren are a band with varied musical backgrounds who love ska & reggae, and also bring in elements of jazz, indie pop and progressive rock to create their unique sound. Based around a crazy, energetic front man, the rhythm and horn section cover a range of ground—from extended jams to two-minute freak outs. Not to be missed!
