Heavy hitting drums and songs full of emotion, The Sweets take you down the rabbit hole with their blend of indie-pop/sludgy psych-rock. When The Sweets bring their show to the stage, you’re lured in by sounds from dreams of wild things but it’s their stage presence that steals your heart. They’ve been compared to bands like Fleetwood Mac and Patti Smith to Queens of the Stone Age and Metric. A true group of eclectics. Their live show is infectious; a feverish call to the animals in the forest.
Band of Rascals
“Nuts and bolts rock ‘n’ roll” is how to describes the dynamic fusion of explosive drums, driving guitars, and inimitable vocals that is Band of Rascals. The Victoria, BC based four-piece has quickly established itself as a major force in the Western Canadian music scene; the result of an overwhelmingly successful year of sold out shows, multiple festival slots and the release of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut EP.
Blending elements of hard-hitting modern rock with the vintage aesthetic of southern blues à la Kings of Leon and the Black Keys, Band of Rascals has created an evocative sound, captivating audiences of all ages. This distinct sound is matched only by their electrifying live performance. “I was absolutely blown away the first time I saw them,” said Dylan Willows (festival promoter and radio personality). As word of their energetic live performance spread, the band soon found themselves performing in increasingly larger venues to accommodate the exponential growth of their audience. The band’s captivating live show soon gained the attention of multiple radio stations, including modern rock station The Zone @ 91.3 who named them their first feature band of 2015. - https://www.facebook.com/bandofrascals/
Mitch Belot Band
Mitch Belot entertains with his swampy story telling style and modern rock flare. He hooks audiences with his powerful, smoky voice, and gets them on their feet by incorporating fast tempos and heavy grooves. While he is first and foremost a humble student of the blues, Mitch adds a taste of rock to the naturally ear pleasing sound that permeates his repertoire. - https://www.facebook.com/mitchbelotmusic/
