CAPADE is a local rock band whose thick sound and dynamic live shows continually captivate an ever-growing audience. At six-foot-three, frontman Nikola Tucakov's stage presence is commanding, while the band's skilled reggae-vibed rock and funk elevates fans and catches them up in a whirl of engerized groove. Their original blend of propulsively funky rock'n'roll pop music has been compared favorably with early David Bowie. Come out and be caught for a spell as band members Siadat, Scharf and Spidel spin a tight grooving musical web with Nikola's vocal prowess drawing you irresistably into it.

A SHEEP AT THE WHEEL fuses pulsing riff-laden verses, huge hooky choruses and powerful vocals in an original post-alternative package. They won the 2005 UBC Battle of the Bands, were voted among the top three independent bands two years running in the Georgia Straight, and have played BC Place and the Pacific Coliseum opening for acts like Finger Eleven and Wide Mouth Mason.

ROSS VEGAS - Blending melody, groove and mood, Ross Vegas meshes resonant vocals, pulsing rhythms and sonic ambience. A funk/soul/reggae machine, Ross Vegas always puts on a memorable show with their cool, groovy sound-mixture of memorable melodies and soulful vocals. Their most recent release "Flow" was recorded at Vogville Studios with renowned producer/engineer Jonathan Fluevog at the helm. The result is a collection of well-crafted songs that are cooly grooving and laced with a gritty edge.
