Founded in 2020, southern Ontario based powerhouse Nitetime Drive blends heavy-hitting hard rock anthems with emotional and meaningful ballads. Their heavy guitar riffs will get you moving, and their lyrics will connect with your soul.

Their independently released self-titled first album is available on all major streaming platforms and the band will be touring heavily throughout Q1/Q2 2024 promoting their new album “Nitetime Drive II".

An alt country band from Kingston, Ontario. What began as a solo songwriting project by Cody Allen James has evolved into a bonafide country rock outfit founded on a simple principle: write good songs and play them well. While they, of course, draw from the masters of the craft: Bob Dylan, John Prine, Gram Parsons, and The Rolling Stones, Good Co. has also been unavoidably influenced by more contemporary artists such as Neutral Milk Hotel, Deer Tick, and Demon’s Claws to name a few.

Began as a duo in 2017; Jake Whalen with the microphone and Ray Petrasek on acoustic rhythm guitar. With their love of rock and roll music, they quickly realized they needed to form a band. Since then, Rayzor’s Edge has had a few different members who will always be apart of the band…whether on stage or not. The energy and feel of this band has never changed. They are a rock and roll party band, getting you up dancing with current and classic rock songs. They are proud of their original material as well. Rayzor’s Edge is a unique experience. They feature a powerful rhythm section, strong male and female lead vocalists and a young lead guitar player that will blow your mind!

A high energy rock band from Kingston, Ontario, that play gritty, soulful music inspired by rock influences, like The Glorious Sons and The Black Crowes. Currently headed into the Tragically Hip’s Bathhouse Recording Studio, The Garvin Brothers will prove to you that Rock ‘n’ roll is alive and well with new music that is brimming with raw energy and passion. 

An unapologetically Canadian Band representing friendship, community and the era that made us. With members from local Tweed, Stirling and Belleville Ontario, our roots are as deep as the music we play. Growing up on Big Shiny Tunes and being the youth of the 90’s and 2000’s that attitude still drives our passion to not conform. Our music is about sharing memories and making new ones through the lessons we have learned, from our past, our mistakes and our successes. Call shotgun, roll the windows down, crank the tunes… and let’s go for a drive!” 

A mainstream rock band out of Oshawa,Canada. The four-piece band formed in the late summer of 2022, and they were off to the studio to record their full self-titled debut LP before the turn of 2023. The band is composed of long-time musicians, Andrew Losier on guitar, Todd Burrows on drums, Tim Reesor on bass, and fronted by long time actor, Alexandra Augustine on vocals. Since dropping their debut LP in June, My Own Addiction has gone on to open for rock legends Buckcherry and Australian rockband The Lazys, as well as supporting the godfathers of metal, Anvil while they toured Canada two years in a row. These four musicians are driven by their passion for performing music that combines high energy classic rock with hard blues undertones, with the added layer of powerful female vocals and cleverly crafted lyrics. Known for their live shows, and their lead singers huge boots - audiences can expect a riveting live show that encourages you to shake off your inhibitions, let loose and rock out! 

"The music of Hot Fudge Sundae is about the little details in the big moments. The little licks in the big guitar solo, the little triplets in the big fill, and the little hit of vibrato in the big chorus. From the barroom haze to the concert stage, Hot Fudge Sundae delivers a raw, emotional performance! Inspired by artists like “the Tragically Hip” and Matthew Good, lyricist and lead vocalist Calum Kennelly creates a powerful alt-rock sound based deeply in personal experience. The sound is reinforced by guitarist Batu Aras’ Eric Johnson-esque virtuoso style and the precise rhythm of Matt Vella (Drums) and Brendan Somerville (bass). The band debuted at Lee’s Palace in early 2023, and was featured in the 2023 NXNE festival in Toronto. With new music in the works, and an undying passion for live performance, Hot Fudge Sundae plans to spend 2024 taking their unique brand of rock music to as many stages as possible!"
