The Shook Boys (ON)
Shook Boys are a wild rockabilly band from Toronto, Canada. They don’t play music to fall in love to, they play nasty stuff that boils primitive urges to the surface - like when you’re feeling right but doin’ wrong. They write songs about what they know and what they know ain't necessarily right; on the street information, living up to no one's standards, and living life like there’s no tomorrow. Inspired by juvenile delinquency, lewd magazines, pulp books, and cars that barely run.
Impeccably dressed as always, when the band hits the floor during their electric live shows, vintage clothing enthusiasts get squarely at the sight of filthy stage grime being ground into gaberdine… and they don’t treat their instruments any better.
Ichi-Bons are the reckless rock ‘n’ roll revival. Inspired by obscure surf, garage, and rockabilly 45s, they combine the sounds of a raunchy vinyl DJ with a cranked rock ‘n’ roll band. From the boppin’ garage to frantic rockabilly, from instrumental surf to desperate rock ‘n’ roll, Ichi-Bons are a stack of quarters on your favorite jukebox.
Born at the rockin’ Black Dice Cafe in Toronto, Ichi-Bons are Mamoru on guitar, Hideki on bass, and Paddy on drums. Formed over a love of 1950s and 60’s records, clothing, and slang, they celebrate the real gone gems of rock ‘n’ roll.
The Green Reflectors (NS)
The Green Reflectors are two brothers, who don’t look like brothers but are most definitely related. Kyle plays the guitar and Aaron plays the drums.
Formed in Bridgewater Nova Scotia in 2007, playing shows since 2008, they’ve jammed their way around Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and toured in Newfoundland and Quebec.
Wherever they play they end up turning heads, getting people’s attention, and capturing the hearts of new fans with their loud in-your-face riff-rock sound and extremely physical shows. The Green Reflectors have opened for many bands including award-winning acts such as the Urban Surf Kings, The Chris Martin Trio, Lee Aaron, Northern Pikes, and Like a Motorcycle to name a few.
Formed in late 2005 in Ottawa, with the simple concept of exploring and re-imagining the music of groups from the Ventures to Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet via the soundtracks of old spy movies.
The band is ready to begin a new adventure that finds our heroes pitted against an evil uprising of the Commodore 64. Let the "Odyssey" begin...
