Hey everyone.

I'll just get right to the goods and hope to see many of you out continuing your support of GREAT LIVE MUSIC IN VANCOUVER!

Here we go...


Featuring Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall & Cameron Latimer

Between snowcapped mountain ranges and east of the Pacific Ocean, the boomtown known as Vancouver, British Columbia is home to three humble young men and a truck load of great music. One is a word-slingin, hip-hop rhymin’, bonafide campfire storyteller. One has the blue blood of a cowboy coursing through his veins and the musical talent of a legend to boot. The third of the posse is a tender-hearted songwriter with a mean sense of melody and a wicked sense of song. Together Ridley Bent, Dustin Bentall, and Cameron Latimer form The Bottle and The Truth, a stampede of songwriters, storytellers and grade A musicians.

Think folk music could use more edge? Think country music could use less electric guitars and more banjos? Think a solid breakfast is an important start to your day? So does Headwater. Their distinctive blend of folk and country roots music, tractor jazz, sounds something like the love children of the Be Good Tanyas and the Old Crow Medicine Show would, after they'd grown up good and strong. Headwater came together in the fall of 2005, initially hoping to be the subject of a reality TV show... but the pilot deal fell through and they've had to resort to selling records and playing gigs to pay the bills.

One of Vancouver's finest Funk-Rock acts of the early 90's, Omnibol were selling out venues such as the Fabulous Commodore Ballroom & the Town Pump before fate took an unexpected turn in 1995 and the bandmates went their seperate ways. 12 years later and the band have reunited to once again rekindle the special chemistry they shared onstage, to write new material and to take Omnibol to the next level of musical expression.

Beluga is one of Western Canada's most exciting live bands. They have been winning fans with their vibrant rock and roll shows, featuring the powerful vocals, wild stage antics of singer David Curran (aka Captain Canada) and the electric musicianship of guitarist Bill Podmore, drummer Mike Herle, bassist Sean O'Donohue and keyboardist Matt Wolfsohn. Energized-Rock, described as "James Brown meets the Who in outer space", their supercharged sound blends a mix of rock & funk stylings while maintaining a pop sensibility.
