Elite squad of Rock Stars from the future!
After Funk has been causing a ruckus on the Ontario music scene with their unique sound and infectiously fun shows since their inception in March of 2011. The Toronto based power-funk group consists of Yanick Allwood (keyboards & vocals), Jaime Rosenberg (drums), Justin Bontje (bass) and Phil Tessis (guitar) who are frequently joined by a horn section and other collaborators. Their self titled debut EP was released in January of 2014 and was mixed and mastered by Alan Evans of Soulive. An increasingly busy touring schedule led to opening spots for groups like Lettuce, Snarky Puppy, Dumpstaphunk, Kung Fu, The Nth Power and Walk Off The Earth. The band was also selected as Electric Forest’s Instrumental Forester and played two sets at the festival where they were featured alongside The String Cheese Incident, Ms. Lauryn Hill, Zeds Dead, Flying Lotus Stephen Marley and more.

Super funky loop based jams! Sometimes solo (big band of one) or sometimes with a power trio (BIG Band of FUN!) featuring Jonah Hache and Marco Lebreton.
This foot-stompin’, harmony-centric, hyphen-lovin’, all-female comedy-band credits themselves with pioneering an exciting new genre of music they’ve lovingly dubbed “Crass Country.” Including tunes about streaking, binge drinking, and trips to the drunk tank, this brand of songwriting could only be stories taken directly from the pages of the sad memoirs of this ragtag group of weirdos.
Easy Numbers is a 3 piece Rock/Reggae/Hip-Hop influenced band hailing from Saint John NB.
Drake Adams, long time song-writer joins forces with Bubba Smokejones (drums) & Chris Craig (bass) to push out this power trio. Starting things up in late September 2015 the band continues to show progression in paving their way for the future of playing and writing amongst on another.
From slow stylings of reggae, to progressive and heavy sounds of rock. This well balanced mix is brought together to create a sound you can’t help but move your feet to. These guys are no strangers to being active musicians. Throughout the trio their roots stretch a far way around different styles of music. (Drake Adams & The Sticky Bandits, Jinx The Cat, Andy Brown, Jelly, Keith Hallet) just to name a few. Showing these guys are not shy, and know what it means to try and bring forward the best music, & show they can produce.
Blurring lines between country twang and indie-rock, with a Maritime lilt.
Diverse instrumentation and soaring five-part vocal harmonies characterize the unique alternative folk sound of Halifax-based band, The Barrowdowns. Born in a cold dark Albertan winter in 2014, the band was started by Halifax musicians Kendra Breen and Rowan Swain. Upon their move back to Nova Scotia, the duo joined up with veteran Halifax musicians Dave Fultz, Adam Martin, and Neal Read to create an eclectic brand of folk music that is both energetic and haunting. With gripping songs that stick with you long after the last chord has rung out, The Barrowdowns create music that will keep you spellbound—even while you stomp your feet.

Wobble Wallah is an enigma to the eccentric degree. Having just returned from a lengthy trip in India, where he has DJed, and shared his love of fire performance in a whole other land, and bringing the knowledge and breadth of his experience to share with us. His sound cannot be described in words, only in the sounds he makes. His love of world music (and I mean literally music from all around the world) is the underlying theme to his magic & madness.
Foggyswoggle is somewhere in the space between weirding you out, and making you dance your butt clear off, all night. Come trance dance down the caverns while you drink from the trough of deep sauce…
Dienamix started his music journey from his love of making people happy. He started playing classical music, focusing mostly on percussion instruments. Dienamix joined the cadet program which gave him the opportunity to learn musical theory which led to the completion of a university level music theory course. His passion for electronic music started by the similarities in heavy metal and dubstep which then moved his taste to every other electronic genre. The driving force and energy in upbeat house music combined with the heaviness of dubstep created Dienamix’s dying love for bass house.

Dank Jankum and the Over-Privileged White Men are an abolishment of the utmost prestige. An infringement on all human decency, and all things sacred. They have no moralistic agenda, and look forward to grating human brains like cheese, and melting it on the pizza of our minds. Their post-apocalyptic grime laden awkward sexy techno sounds will leave you speechless in a morbid kinda way.
