(Mtl. Reggae/Ska/Soul)
A one-hundred proof blend of raspy rocksteady, sizzling soul, surf swagger and punkrock pedigree shaken (not stirred) with a double shot of the roughest roots reggae your ears have ever tasted. Pour it into a highball glass over some ice-cold lyrics

DANNY REBEL & the KGB (Mtl. Reggae/Ska/Soul)
Original BOOM! from the bastard sons of Reggae.

THE ABRUPTORS (Buffalo, NY Ska/Reggae/Soul)
Traditional Two Tone Ska from America!

SOUND ONE (To. Rocksteady)
Explosive Vintage Ska! Elements of Calypso, Ska , Rock Steady, Burru drumming, Soul, Afrobeat, and Jazz are all brought together, driven by powerful horn lines. 

Ottawa's own Ska/Rocksteady 7, these boys bring a mix of original scorchers and reimaginings of classic Jamaican hits. For fans of The Skatalites, Ken Boothe and The Slackers.
