The ALEJANDRO MARIN BAND - Although they're a long way from South America, the Alejandro Marin Band's music is effortlessly authentic, as groovy as it is smooth, and of course, a lot of fun. Formed in drunken happenstance by members of Innertwyne, Trophy Wife and 7th Sun, the acoustic trio couples Spanish-tinged steel-string finger-style guitar work with Colombian-folk inspired nylon-string guitar chops and dual vocals that fit together perfectly. http://www.myspace.com/alejandromarinband
MEXICAN DRUG PATROL - Formerly known as The HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS, Mexican Drug Patrol brings blazing electric desert surf rock to the clubs of Vancouver. The guitars of James Elwood and Ben Fussell do the talking, backed up by Tony Dallas on drums and the recent addition of Dave Wise of Fuzzcat on bass. The band is hard at work recording their first album, which will be stuffed to the gills with original instrumental rock tunes. http://www.myspace.com/mexicandrugpatrol
WHITEY - Delivering the goods in BC since February of 2001, Whitey has been charging dance floors and festivals across the country since 2005. With an EP, two full-lengths, and a documentary/live DVD in their library, this group from Chilliwack/Vancouver BC is well experienced. Their style, incorporating everything from Funk to Latin to Blues, offers something for everyone in an extremely energetic live show. http://www.myspace.com/whiteycanada
TAYLOR HARP's voice "has a gentle warmness that soothes your soul like the sun and effortlessly drifts over a blues and rock influenced acoustic guitar littered with subtle inflections that are both well-crafted and perfectly emphasize his soulful laid-back vocal approach." -- Exclaim!
