LIONS IN THE STREET create rock'n'roll that is fierce and genuine, invoking vintage Stones swagger and raunchy boogie rock 'n' roll with lean attack and ass-kicking rhythmic sense. Formerly known as The Years, the Lions are managed by 10th St Entertainment (Motley Crue, Blondie, Meatloaf). Praised by Magnet Magazine as being "what the Stones were, what the Dandy Warhols should've been," they've shared stages with the likes of Jet, Kings of Leon, Ambulance Ltd, The Dirtbombs and The Zutons.

GRASS CITY is a cathartic, foot-stompin' jug of musical moonshine -- soul-stirring Southern Doom Blues of the highest order. Their live show is a bruising, head-thrashing, tear-jerking experience that bulldozes the audience into heavenly oblivion with a thick Skynyrd-esque three-guitar assualt, scratched whiskey vocals and a Sabbathian worship of the Riff. It sounds like rock and roll savin' your soul, the sound of meat hittin' the grill. It sounds like goddamn GRASS CITY.

MARY'S GUNNS - More metal than GnR, more laid-back than Megadeth, more Southern than Motley Crue, and more Northern than AC/DC, Marys Gunns pick up where the 80s heavyweights left off and scream new life into classic rock. Their music is in no way just a retro trend or merely derivative, it is instead a continuation, expansion and addition to a balls-to-the-wall rock and roll tradition. As the bastard sons of Axl and Slash, Steve and Joe, Ozzy and Tony, Angus and Bon, Page and Plant, their sound is deeply rooted in the music they grew up banging their heads to.

The FILIGREES - This 2 man blues-driven rock and roll band focuses on tightly crafted feel-good music! Influenced by Neil Young, Kings of Leon and the Rolling Stones, the band has been favourably compared to Black Mountain and Wolfmother, and promises to blow the roof off with their original blend of rockin' bluegrass heart and soul.
