Learn More about each band below:
The Johhny mccuaig band
The Johnny McCuaig Band is a Canadian band. Now, you’re probably wondering, “What the hell does that mean?” Well, for starters, they don’t say ‘about’ as ‘aboot’ and they definitely don’t sound like Nickelback, Justin Bieber, Arcade Fire or Drake. Instead, they draw on Canada’s rich, cultural mosaic to create an original mix of musical genres that stands out in the crowd. We’re talking a super fun blend of hard rock, pop, new wave, folk, and blues combined with their not-so-secret weapon: bagpipes!
Whale & the wolf
The holy grounds of their humble jam space located in the Inglewood district of Edmonton have helped create an interesting juxtaposition. A rough around the edges group of guys who have managed to create a pleasantly refined sound; a genre that can be accurately defined as "Erotic Rock".
