Event Description

MOSES MAYES - Classic funk grooves, slick guitar riffs, punchy horn lines, old school keys and turntable cuts - this is Moses Mayes. A sound defined by the vision of three students of groove that encompasses elements of past and modern funk fusion, the music of Moses Mayes has been moving people on the dance floor and from their stereos across North America for nearly 10 years. Their performances have earned them a reputation as one of the best live acts in the scene, playing to festival and club audiences and leading the new funk fusion sound. Add 3 full length releases, a Western Canadian Music Award and thousands of CD sales and you have an accumulation of years of experience in orchestrating grooves and exploring sonic frontiers. "Second Ring", the third full-length album from Moses Mayes, features classic dance-funk grooves and signature jazz horns combined with guest vocals by Sherry St. Germain, Ariane Jean and PHATT al, each of whom adds their own flavour to the Moses sound. The result is a fresh new take on modern dance music with great songs that incorporate elements from the genres of funk fusion, jazz, house and pop.

The HERMIT is an award-winning 5-piece organic indie/pop/electronica band founded by drummer/songwriter/producer Hamish Thomson. Their indie debut "Flying Out Of Solitude" garnered multiple WCMA nominations which led to a record deal with Nettwerk Records, and the follow up, 2005's critically-acclaimed "Wonderment", featured guest vocals by Martina Sorbara, Allison Shevernoha, Shelley Campbell, C.R. Avery & Frazey Ford (Be Good Tanyas). The Hermit recently completed their third album "Turn Up (The Stereo)" with co-producer Krish Sharma (Rolling Stones, Perry Farrell). With a recent #1 video on Bravo's Top 30 Countdown and opening spots for Ivy and Apostles of Hustle, The Hermit is finally getting their due.

ARCTIC conjures up a rich live experience by recording live guitar loops and constructing each song before the audience. Layers of haunting melodies cascade on top of richly improvised arrangements, with intertwining vocals and guitar melded into a chilled and airy soundscape.
