THE LEATHER UPPERS (Toronto Legendary Garage)
Formed in 1991, revered for pioneering both the two-man rock army and the garage-rock revival, as well as for emphasizing showmanship at a point when most bands were staring at their shoes, if not turning their backs on their audiences altogether.
MISSISSIPPI GROVER (Kingston One Man Swampy Blues Band
One-man travelling-medicine-show featuring Garage Rock Legend Greg Watson (The Orange Alabaster Mushroom, the 14th Wray, The Buzzards, Thorax). Greg will be bringing his moonshiny gumbo of sound to TARG for the very first time. Why did that take so long? FFO Link Wray / Hasil Adkins / The Sonics / Screamin' Jay Hawkins / Howlin' Wolf / Captain Beefheart / The Desecrators / The Standells / Bo Diddley / The Cramps / Little Willie John / Jimmy Reed / Slim Harpo
SHANKER & THE FRONTENACS (Ottawa Garage)
SHANKER has been a prolific musician & event organizer in the Ottawa underground/Garage/Proto Punk scene for decades (including this here Surf & Turf Festival). THE FRONTENACS is Shanker's Garage power-pop project featuring legendary Jon Kiely & Chris Cook! Always a good time!
