Opener: The British Columbians
Vancouver area-based quartet The British Columbians are a breath of fresh air. Their eclectic, old school blues-influenced brand of rock n’ roll, coupled with a fierce work ethic and grassroots approach to making music, is seeing them blossom as one of Canada’s few truly authentic, up-and-coming acts. – Artist bio
Headline: The Sheepdogs
While most rock bands are all too focused on the riff, the Sheepdogs remember the importance of those other elements that make for great rock music: melody, harmony and groove. To see them live is pure rock and roll jubilation, to revel in the splendour created by 3 part vocal harmonies and heavy hitting dual guitar leads. Their latest album, “Learn Burn”, is a beautiful blend of power and imagination, ranging from ferocious rockers to southern boogie and grooving psychedelia. Big guitars, stacked harmonies, vintage organ and piano skillfully colour each of the album’s 15 tracks, proving that these boys are as dedicated to the craft of songwriting and album making as they are to playing a dynamite live show. The Sheepdogs are an old-school rock and roll revival. – Artist website
