TONGUE (Rolling Stones tribute featuring Mick Believe) - For all those who believe in rock'n'roll, charismatic Mick Jagger impersonator Mick Believe (who played the iconic rocker in the movie "The Watchmen") will kick you into party mode as he and his band, TONGUE pay tribute to the musical glory of the ROLLING STONES! Expect to be amazed by faithful renditions of classic Stones songs in a stellar live homage that recreates their sound with top notch musicianship and seasoned stage theatrics.

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.

The REKKERZ are the soundtrack of the Wreck Beach experience, dedicated to the celebration of freedom and unlimited personal expression. Their musical cast numbers upwards of 20 players all with the attitude of a good time backed by a great song. Famous for their ever-evolving style of creative community musicianship, The REKKERZ really know how to bring down the house!

HUNK HOUGHTON is a singularily unique whiskey-fueled rockabilly jam-band from Vancouver featuring guitar, upright bass and solid rhythms. With a name based on an iconic tempermental singer from the classic Elvis movie, Jailhouse Rock, the band's high energy rock n' roll-a-billy always fires up the crowd!
