Ginger St James (ON)

Born to entertain, Ginger St. James’ song-writing and voice are as powerful as they are poignant. Powerful in a way where it’s hard to believe such a voice comes from a five-foot frame. Poignant in a way that the music and the message rings true through the test of time. Her repertoire blends country, rockabilly and blues with a sultry voice and commanding stage presence. Ginger St James brings a combination of high energy and incredible sweetness to the stage that is beyond comparison. You won't be able to resist falling in love.

HJ & The Constellations (QC)

Surf rock psychedelic exotica from Montreal Canada.

The Allez Cats (ON)

The Carnivals are a 5 piece combo that combine a unique blend of 50’s inspired R&B with a New Orleans flair. Hailing from Gloucester Massachusetts, their debut album, “Fiesta Time” will be released in spring of 2024. Best described as a fun time party band, the song “Greasy Pole” tells the tale of a 100 plus year competition where the contestants walk the length of a horizontal telephone pole coated in grease, 20 feet over the harbor to capture a flag and achieve hero status on the streets of Gloucester.

Their music has also been featured on over 200 television programs from Vampire Diaries to Dance Moms, American Pickers to Pawn Stars.

The Howlin' Hound Dogs (QC)

The Shakedown Combo (NS)

The Shakedown Combo perform with the attitude that Rockabilly can be modern and contemporary, not simply a sound from past decades revived by cover bands whenever retro becomes fashionable. 


The Shakedown Combo's line-up consists of two girls (Gill on vocals and Kim on upright bass) and one Guy (Davey Lee on guitar) who together blast out Red Hot Bass Slappin' Beat Whackin' Rockabilly Twang!

Three Blue Teardrops (USA)

When we started our journey as a musical entity in Chicago the autumn of 1991 (Yes THAT long ago) we were in our very early 20s and were in it for kicks, to play some gigs, travel, meet people, have some drinks, be creative, make music, and have some laughs and contribute to a DIY music scene and take our influences and filter them through a rockabilly format. We wanted leave some tracks in the sand and we've done that and vow to continue to do that until we are no longer capable.  Our reason for forming wasn't to "get famous” and it's safe to say that after 32 years we have so far safely avoided that pitfall!  Phew. Luckily we also didn't start this band to get rich and that also is a good thing because the wealth we have acquired is not financial.  So here we are…How did we get here?
