Band Lineup:

Zachary Doeding — Zac’s style is kind of folk/alt/country/pop with a healthy dose of finger-picking. He plays and writes songs about love, family and politics.

SweetLeaf –  an original ska funk band from Victoria, BC, Fresh off of the main stage at Ska Fest.

Cannibal Bob — local rockers with their own take on cover songs, always a crowd favourite.

Doja — A funk, Ska, rock band hailing from Abbotsford, check them out.

Johnny Galactic – Johnny Galactic is a three-piece acoustic rock band from lower Vancouver Island. Their music style is distinct yet dynamic: a coalescence of the timeless story telling of folk, the sunny strumming of acoustic guitars, the beats of power-pop, and the raw energy of rock.

Aegis Fang — Aegis Fang is a three piece Blues/Rock band from Vancouver Island.

They have captured a modernized classic rock sound with the punching blues riffs and hand clapping, foot stomping, Island- style rock that their live shows are known for.

The Tractor Grease Folk — The Tractorgrease Folk are all about fun zippy tunes with a focus on humour and satire. Their jam band approach to performing has drawn comparisons to Dr. Hook,the Barenaked Ladies and Stompin Tom. Their new album “All Folked Up” features songs about garage sales, hockey and cruisin’ around in a Winnebago.
