The BURNETTES - Chugging their way through hypnotic laments, The Burnettes effortlessly recall the glory of mid-’90s slacker rock without sounding dated. Bringing bluesy delivery to an indie sensibility, their music remains fresh while paying homage to an era of honest folk rock bands.

SIX GUN ROMEO is a melting pot of riffs, beats, runs and melodies taking many different styles of music as their influences. From the legend of Johnny Cash to the totally hot sensation of Imelda May, the band's sole aim is to get you off your butt and to throw some incredible shapes on the dance floor.

ORCHARD PINKISH and HIS HORNY HANDS - Laced with witty, oft self-depreciating interludes, the multi-talented Orchard Pinkish (Motorama, Little Guitar Army) has taken his heartfelt acoustic covers from the kitchen table to the stage. Historic antics are sure to ensue when Pinkish serenades the Railway with His Horny Hands Mike Laviolette (Liquor Kings, Surf Messiahs) and Richard Katynski (Gold Stars Are For Suckers, Waltz Darling).

SWANK delivers an unholy alliance of rock, country, soul, gospel, blues and punk styles that go together like moonshine and mason jars, preaching and sinning, Vegas and vice. A featured artist at the 2010 Winter Olympics, their glorious mayhem 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.

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
