Mondays –Jason Redman   A professional entertainer from Collingwood, ON.  He has amassed a couple decades of experience performing at weddings, private and corporate events, bar and bars as well as festivals and theatres.  Working as a solo act or with his various band, he has most entertainment needs covered.  If you’re looking for Rock, Blues, Easy Listening, pub-style acoustic sing alongs or Country Music, Jason is your pick!

Craig Smith

Tuesdays – Craig Smith  Craig Smith possesses warmth and an honesty that permeates everything he touches, everyone he meets, every song he sings. Smith first made his mark in 2007 as a solo recording artist, with his debut album Not Sure Not Sure, a musical statement of self-awareness that made the Toronto Star Anti-Hit List. On his sophomore album, HEAVY EARLY (2011), Smith coaxes his familiar Gretsch guitar in and out of corners of his mind, yielding twelve intensely personal narratives. Set to a melodic, often joyous swagger of loud rock and roll woven with deliberate acoustic songs, HEAVY EARLY creates a classic, two-sider vinyl album kind-of-flow.  Currently working on his much-anticipated third album (2014), Smith continues to tour and clear an authentic path that cleverly walks the line between the roots of rock and country and the melody of pop.

DrewWright

Wednesdays – Drew Wright  Drew got into music early as a young child and his early and continuing fascination with music is credited to his father who was always in and out of bands and an avid player.   Being pressured by friends to audition for Canadian Idol and being one of the top three finalists on the 6th season, his most valued piece of advice for any musician is to stay true to yourself.

Rebecca Rain Web

Thursdays – Rebecca Rain   For Rebecca Rain, there are three things that matter most – family, the small town she grew up in, and music.   Part of the package of growing up with the small town life for Rebecca was a very early exposure to country music. Drawing influences from childhood favourites like Loretta Lynn, June Carter Cash, and Patsy Cline, Miss Rain has crafted a sound that is equally modern and traditional, all delivered by a voice that is hauntingly pure, and with a reflective songwriting style wise beyond her years.   “Being immersed in a musical family from a young age shaped who I am today.” says Rebecca “When I sing about love, loss, heartache or longing I’m singing about the experiences that we’ve all been through together. And, when it’s time to turn up the volume and get the boots stomping a little harder, growing up as the only sister to 3 brothers sure didn’t hurt.”  With all the places that Rebecca’s music has, and will continue to take her, she is grounded by the strength of her roots, and in knowing that eventually, all roads lead to home.

Janes Party photoweb

Wild Rivers web

 

AUGUST 26 – JANE’S PARTY    Since 2006, the members of Toronto-based pop-rock quartet Jane’s Party – Devon Richardson, Tom Ionescu, Jeff Giles, and Zach Sutton – feel like they’re just starting to gather steam.  Their diverse array of sounds jumps across and often fuses genres – from folk to funk to stripped-down guitar rock, with synth-pop flourishes and splashes of grunge.  Ready to take off after years roving Toronto’s vibrant bar scene and touring great swaths of Canada, their third full-length album, Tunnel Visions, arrives as their most confident and mature effort to date. Produced by Blue Rodeo’s Greg Keelor and recorded at his remote farm in Southern Ontario, it’s comprised of songs about being on the road, about losing loved ones, about growing up and coming to grips with life.  Visit Jane’s Party Website HERE


And WILD RIVERS   An indie-folk band based in Toronto, Wild Rivers was born out of Devan & Khalid, the duo has experienced much success since they first met in Kingston in 2012.  Devan Glover and Khalid Yassein have perfected their special musical chemistry, heard in their lead single, No Ribbons, which enjoyed national radio airplay and led to the two being voted Toronto’s Best New Artist in the 2015 CBC Searchlight contest.  Devan & Khalid have added Oakville natives Ben Labenski and Andrew Aliver to become Wild Rivers.  Visit Wild Rivers Website HERE

Ferraro_113JenSquires

SEPTEMBER 2 – SAM CASH & THE ROMANTIC DOGS     Sam Cash’s new album Tongue-In-Cheek Vows perfectly captures that moment when a young artist and his cohorts find their collective voice and suddenly realize that there are no limits to what they can accomplish together. The explosive opening track “Cast Away” serves notice that this isn’t just another singer/songwriter-fronted band. With Cash’s unflinching poetry riding atop The Romantic Dogs taut exuberance, Tongue-In-Cheek Vows is a gimmick-free, melodic masterpiece—tipping its hat to an era when conviction was measured by the amount of sweat and blood exuded on stage, and in the studio.  Visit Sam Cash & The Romantic Dogs Website HERE


Special Guest – FERRARO  When it comes to brothers, none are more “brotherly” than the Ferraro brood. Though the name may be new
to some ears – their dynastic legacy is not.  They are descendants of The Cameron House (which is still in the family’s hands). A venue with a well-earned reputation as the place to be seen, and to see new music. Surrounded by the storied history, and witness to countless legendary performers – it was almost unavoidable they would band together to do the same. Cosmo, Tally and Gianni have no memory of when they started to play together. To them, it’s always been so. However, they do recall the forceful recruitment of Tally, the youngest brother to sing – he unwillingly complied…and they’ve never looked back.  Looking back is a fitting way to describe their sound. It’s 50’s inspired and yet it’s inherently modern. They clash, bang and grit it out, with a melodic tone that is reminiscent of The Beatles and The Strokes. Their debut record ‘Losing Sleep’ encompasses all those aspects and sticks in your head – it’s catchy as hell. The title track (also their first single) is a toe-tapping, finger-snapping, sing-along inducing ride – expect no less from the album. A lot of heart and soul went into this bad-boy.

WhitehorseGALLERYIMAGE1

 JULY 9, Peak to Shore Music Festival WHITEHORSE      Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.  Whitehorse’s story has been told as two acclaimed musicians joining forces under one new name – no drummer, no keyboard player, violinist or even bass player on call, and no producer. Just Luke Doucet and Melissa McClelland The first album and EP demonstrate the success of this simple equation, one plus one, with an abundance of guitar slinging, songwriting expertise and white-hot desire.  Of course, the live show has been anything but simple. Melissa and Luke present a full band sound using live loops, bits and pieces percussion, and swapping guitars left right and centre on stage. By the time Whitehorse took to the stage at Toronto’s esteemed Massey Hall for their sold-out debut in 2013, the edge of the ledge effect of their earliest shows had transformed into a nimble ballet of moving instruments, layers of percussion, voice and keys, layered upon each other. Visit Whitehorse’s Website HERE

JULY 31, Village Vibe LAZO     Juno Award winner/Top Reggae Performer Lazo exudes a “feel-good” vibe through his combination of reggae riddims, beautiful melodies, conscious lyrics, and his uncanny ability to connect with his audience.  Lazo writes songs informed by his studies in history and political science (he holds a degree in Political Science from the University of Toronto), and his deep empathy for the human condition.  Lazarus J.
