The Cardboard Crowns https://www.thecardboardcrowns.com/
A mighty clash of ska-beat, reggae, punk-rock, and community service, all wrapped up in a swirling frenzy of cardboard!
Bitter North http://www.bitternorthband.com/
Kaleidoscopic, post-rock, genre-bending eclectic, Ottawa’s Bitter North doesn’t know what genre’s banner to fly under, but they are happy as undefinable music explorers, dirt on their knees, thumbs out, with a style uniquely their own. Boot-stomping, drum-driven sing-alongs, give way to eerie harmonies, subtle synthesizers, tantalizing guitar riffs, which support soaring lead vocals. The songs weave in and out, endings and beginnings blur, subtle to heavy and back.
Jumpin' Joel Flash http://www.jumpinjoelflash.ca/
Jumpin’ Joel Flash is an entertainer, composer, and sometimes actor who developed his on-the-fly style and triple-octave range through pure repetition; non-stop-rock with various bands and theatre productions over the course of 15 years.
Joel is the Bandmaster of THE MAGIC MACHINE! This silly potpourri of creative minds creates a sweet mix of folk and southern twang featuring opera-rock vocals, bouncy rhythms, musical theatre harmonies, and the occasional rain stick interlude.
Hosted by the very funny and very fabulous Steve Love
