RUDE CITY RIOT - Contagious melodies, smart lyrics, tight grooves and a wailing horn section keep the dance floor packed and the crowd singing along. With a strong reverence for the mighty ska tradition and influences ranging from punk to reggae to soul, Rude City Riot is set to make their mark on the ska community!

The HANG-TEN HANGMEN travelled back in time from another dimension to learn how to play surf-rock in the 21st century, influenced by The Ventures, The Beach Boys, Link Wray, Dick Dale, The Astronauts and Los Straitjackets!

The CAVELEROS - Based out of Victoria, The Caveleros are three highly talented musicians who can play anything from rapid fire rockabilly surf instrumentals to atmospheric border town instrumentals of the American Southwest. Listening to them is a melodically and rhythmically engaging, exciting and infectious musical experience.
