Ellisdominators
EllisDon’s unofficial band, the EllisDominators, was formed in 2016 for one reason – to rock. Since their inception, the band has raised over $30,000 for charity… while blowing over 2,500 people’s minds. The EllisDominators have embarked on their four date, 2018 World Tour with stops in London (…. Ontario), Toronto, Edmonton, Vancouver and Halifax.
Fred Woks The Dog
Fred Woks the Dog has been a dominating force in the rock n’ roll scene in Japan for 30 years. They have been writing massive hits that have been number one on charts in foreign counties that are really hard to get to.

Their music has been heard around the world only because other artists have stolen their hits and made themselves rich and famous in North America.

Now Fred Woks the Dog is back to play the songs that were once theirs the way they are supposed to be played.

Picture six Zoolanders playing what makes you rock and go crazy. That’s Fred Woks the Dog.
Kaydee Kay + Jeremy Gray
Ooooh. A project rooting deep in folksy rock’n country. Led by two surprise Albertans who can write, sing, and play really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really well.
Red Hot Holopenos
Red Hot Holopeños was conceived one stormy night when Father Fury and Mother Chaos joined each other in ravenous, corporate health-oriented embrace. What was born out of this rapturous union was a band that, come November of 2018, will shake the city of Edmonton to its very foundations. Put down your beer and raise a frosted mug of carrot juice, the Red Hot Holopeños will rock you.
Streetmeat
The Almighty Streetmeat was formed in the winter of 2017 in the dark and dingy alleys of Edmonton Alberta, by a group of local street vendors. Bitten by radioactive mosquitoes at a What the Truck event, the band found themselves bestowed with rock ‘n roll superpowers. They raise money for charity because of all of the potholes in the city’s roads, which they blame on themselves. You heard of Led Zeppelin? Wimps. The Beatles? Amateurs. The Rolling Stones? Total hacks! Streetmeat will wrap you in a sonic pita and skewer you with rock ‘n roll! Prepare to slide through a funnel cake straight to the dance floor!
ECDC
The year was 1986; the city, New York. Schelly and Summach had just come off stage after opening for KISS at the Garden. It was a crazy time of easy cash and cheap thrills. Since meeting on tour as back-up flautists for Jethro Tull in the 70s, success had been their dream. But
endless nights on the road had taken their toll. It was in the early-morning hours, after that KISS gig, eating runny eggs at a dive bar that burned down a week later, that Schelly and Summach set course for something more. ECDC was born.

Within a few short weeks, the international supergroup took shape. ECDC is made of Schelly & Summach on guitars, D’Artagnan on Bass and Sider on Drums. Supporting them are Jenny P, Chessica and JayDubz on background vocals, with guest performers often part of the show.

In the past 35 years, ECDC has been through it all. Rehab. Bankruptcy. Cholera. But the ECDC machine rolls on. They rocked the Superbowl in '93. They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in ‘07. And they captured the Governor General’s Award in '13. Even with their fame and fortune, they still call Edmonton home to Edmonton. It's been a long way to the top for ECDC.
