The LIQUOR KINGS are a dynamic Vancouver rock band with notoriously entertaining live shows and a powerhouse brand of high energy rock & roll. Together they collectively bring decades of performance and musical experience to the table to produce a fun, fast paced, no holds barred sound that encourages audiences to get up and party like they mean it!

SWANK delivers an unholy alliance of rock, country, soul, gospel, blues and punk styles that go together like moonshine & mason jars, preaching & sinning, Vegas & vice. The glorious mayhem that is Swank live has earned them a loyal fan base on both sides of the Atlantic in the wake of regular hometown shows and two memorable tours of the UK and Ireland. Their raucous shows combine truly original material with choice covers from greats such as Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, and Screamin Jay Hawkins, serving the very finest in high-octane, foot-stomping barroom belligerence while leaving few mouths shut or asses seated in the process.

The BONE DADDIES have created a new sound that is familiar and yet distinctively unique, taking influences from a wide variety of musical genres including ska, reggae, swing, jazz, rockabilly and punk. Moving dance floors with their newly fused sound, they present a musical momentum that is hard not to get swept up in.

SEMI-TONE RIOT has been cranking out their rock 'n' roll originals at the venues all around Vancouver since forming here in 2011. You can hear '50s rock influences in their catchy rock tunes and upbeat live performances, and they also like to throw out a few of your favourite oldies covers during their set.

Swank (Cowpunk Meets 60's Garage)

Swank's first album, "Pappy's Corn Squeezins" (2001) was conceived by the band to sound like The Ramones playing Johnny Cash. Produced by Howard Redekopp, the album was described by the legendary Ray Condo as "New Wave Country"-an apt description for a fine debut that holds its own to this day. The group's second album "The Survival Issue" (2004... more info

Semi-Tone Riot (pop/punk/50s/rock)

Semi-tone Riot first started out in 2010 as a late night acoustic project by lead singer Barry Green. After playing solo acoustic stuff around town Barry wanted to rock the songs up with a faster tempo and heavier guitars. This meant the acoustic guitar would be collecting some dust while the electrics got busted out. So in early 2011 Barry called... more info
