The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra are a collection of musicians, linked by common sonic journeys and familial ties. It doesn’t matter much how they got here, but rather that they are traveling with each other. Now they are here in the room with you, the way music in the folk tradition always is, to bring people together; to share real flesh, blood and feeling.
Amongst all the acts that come thru town, every now and then we get something very special and unique. Las Chachas are a 6-person band originating from Sayulita, Mexico, and are bringing their blend of live Tropical Rock to Fernie for a very special night. Serving up 3 sets of non-stop dancing music, they're sure to set your hips swaying and your smiles dialed to 10. Get down early to catch this amazing show!
Del Suelo is a funky/alternative band from Saskatchewan performing as a trio. Wrist Shot Records and Books presents the new release: "The Musician's Compass: A 12 Step Programme". A project about the highs and lows of a punk band on tour. The craziest novel and record COMBO to hit the streets possibly, like, ever!
With lyrics as rich as the waters that fill their namesake lake in Northwestern Ontario, Kakagi writes earnest songs about people and places - themes as universal as the Trans-Canada Highway. Emotional yet driving, you’ll be tapping your toes in your winter boots.
Destruction and melody, acid wit and bruising vocals-this is the Pack A.D. Singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have made a sound so gigantic, so fierce and raw and empowering, that it's easy to forget there are just two people behind this brilliant, carefully constructed havoc. Shredding and pounding their way through every song, the Pack A.D. swallows you whole inside their fearless Franken-blend of heavy psychpop/garage-rock.
With a thunderous sound, Heavy Airship descends on the Kootenay region of British Columbia like a storm coming in from the Misty Mountain. In just a short time the Nelson-based Led Zeppelin tribute has gained a faithful following in the area and has shared the stage with the likes of Dr. Hook and the legendary AC/DC tribute act BC/DC.
