The UNKNOWN SOLDIERS come amazingly close to replicating the music of THE DOORS note for note while capturing their raw energy through each band member's interpretation, combining to deliver a groovy reproduction of a live Doors show that keeps audiences in a head-bobbing, toe-tapping trance. Their singer's Morrison-esque look, vibe and baritone voice combine with swirling organs and deft musicianship to captivate and transcend time and place, allowing audiences to be transported back in time to experience a taste of live shows that are now a part of rock mythology. "Unknown Soldiers might just be the city’s best cover band... bringing a remarkable intensity to their shows, feeding off the audience's energy and turning each performance into an alcohol-fueled, quasi-spiritual journey." - Inside Vancouver

RUNNIN' DOWN A DREAM (Tom Petty Tribute) - Mark Ingram started Runnin' Down A Dream in 2009 as a way to introduce new fans to the music of one of the greatest songwriters in rock and roll while entertaining existing fans with familiar hits and standout rarities. This kick-ass band of experienced musicians will blow you away with their high energy takes on classic Tom Petty songs like American Girl, Free Fallin' and Mary Jane's Last Dance, not to mention a song or two from the Traveling Wilburys, Mudcrutch, and Petty's Live Anthology.

PUSS 'N' BOOTS are an irreverent tribute to the NEW YORK DOLLS, dripping with menace, swagger and questionable fashion choices. Joining forces to form an exciting, entertaining brand of rock & roll that traces its stylistic roots to glitter-flecked, high-heeled, amped-up days of yore, their sleazy, snarling and slightly nauseous tour-de-farce will challenge the expectations and tolerance levels of Vancouver audiences.
