Friday & Saturday, May 17 & 18 – The Casuals:
We are a high energy showband located in Ottawa. We break the rules when it comes to genre-we play it all, delivered in an exciting package that engages the audience. We simply leave no choice for the audience. We play solid hard rock, veer into country, with a stop in soul and classic rockabilly, and even some hip-hop!. No era or genre is off limits.
Thursday, May 23 – Dana & Tyree:
You’d think, after 10 years, we would have gotten around to this but…meh, whatru gonna do. Thanks for checking us out! We’re a couple of East Coast music geeks who play around the Ottawa area. We’ve been playing together, in one form or another, almost since we met more than 10 years ago. The show may have changed but we’re still doing what we love together.
Friday & Saturday, May 24 & 25 – Silver Creek:
The band’s sound has morphed and matured, their southern-rock roots pinnacled on 2011’s sprawling work “Princes and Kings” and moved from there into something far more unique. Today the songs are much more focused, and give more the feeling of looking forward than looking back. Working with John Chandler and Ken Friesen as producers on new material, the band still believes in and relies on local talent rather than looking beyond the Ottawa valley for the big names and hype spin of other cities.
Thursday, May 30 – Lemeow Duo:
Infused with soul and smothered in sass, leMeow is quickly carving out their place in Ottawa’s growing indie scene and capturing the attention of some of Canada’s most respected music critics. Radio broadcaster Alan Cross described their first single Evening Blues as “sultry coolness.”
Friday & Saturday, May 31 & June 1 – Water’s Edge:
