The Boo Radley Project (Elora/Guelph)
Hailing from Elora/Guelph ON, the Boo Radley Project is an eight piece (and sometimes larger depending on who is in town) genre-bending collective that fuses funk, indie and jazz. They've been likened to everyone from Tower of Power and Mr. Bungle to Primus and Wilco. But really, they're just Boo, a ragtag group of brothers serving up a quirky, fresh approach to music. Their live shows are high energy featuring an eclectic mix of instrumentation from electric mandolin to a three piece brass section. In addition to the music, the band uses projections to compliment the live performance, creating an immersive, sensory experience. The band has toured southern Ontario, Quebec and the Canadian East Coast and has played festival stages at Hillside and Riverfest Elora. Their long-awaited debut LP Bred To Be Loyal was released in June 2017 and featured on CBC Radio 1. They also want you to know they had a baby dolphin named after them. It's called Boo and is swimming somewhere off the shores of Hawaii.
Band of Rascals (Vancouver Island)
Some of the finest foot stompin, hoot'n n holler'n, hoe down, craze driven, tasty blues born rock n roll that you'll find this side of the country.
Founded in 2016, CYGNUS is a 5-piece rock band based in Toronto, Ontario. The band consists both of members that have played together since high school and went on to meet in the music program at Humber College.
A growing original catalog, mixed with rock/progressive favorites is what makes up their live show. Powerful vocals and melodic instrumentation are the keys to their sound. No style or groove is off limits for this group - as long as it's musical. With a diverse sounding, hard rocking set, CYGNUS will deliver a musical experience to remember.
Royal Castles (Guelph)
