THE SHAWN “JAM” HILL RECOVERY BENEFIT CONCERT. ALL PROCEEDS TO HELP ALLEVIATE THE FINANCIAL BURDEN OF SHAWN’S RECUPERATION.
SPECIAL PERFORMANCES BY:
DOUBLE PUMPERS (Ottawa Stoner Rock)
Passionate exponents of dude rawk, Ottawa’s Double Pumpers bleed classique riffology, oozing a chemistry only a straight up bro-down can ensure. Formed in 2003, Damian Sawka (rollicking 4-string bombast/sweet vox), Dave Martindale (frenzied old-skool six string technique/impassioned vox) and Paul “Yogi” Granger (meat n’ potato skin thumper) converge to create a timeless tone marrying the austerity of Captain Beyond
with the force of the Sabs and a hint of what made BTO Canada’s greatest hard rock expungers.
BANDITAS (Ottawa Garage Punk)
Hailing from Ottawa, better known for polite manners, bureaucrats and tulips than take no prisoners rock ‘n’ roll come atrio of sonic miscreants. The Banditas have been bobbing heads, breaking eardrums, and laying waste to bar tabs and laissez faire Ottawa rock for the last decade. Fast, loud, rough around the edges the Banditas will make you want to simultaneously dance and tear shit up.
ANDREW VINCENT & THE PIRATES (Ott Folk Punk)
Rare performance by one of Ottawa’s faves
SLO' TOM & THE HANDSOME DEVILS (Ott crazy rollicking country)
He'll get your toe tappin', your funny bone twitchin' & your tears flowin' with all of his AMAZING country hits. Slo' Tom is an Ottawa institution - he played in the legendary punk band Furnace Face, He fixes your amps at Spacemanmusic.com. You can't mis with Slo' Tom & his uber talented Handsome Devils.
GARAGA (Ottawa SkreedleGroove)
Born and raised in a garage (seriously), Ottawa’s very own GARAGA was originally cooked up as a fun-hearted poke at ominous- sounding metal names like Pantera. But behind the mockery was the semi-serious idea that GARAGA, like the name suggests, could be a super-fuzzed-out 60’s garage outfit with an order of heavyosity on the side.
BOOM CREEK (Ott Psyche/Psychobilly/Rock)
Boom Creek play thud, twang and thunder rock 'n' roll for all the people.
SLIM & POPULAR (Ottawa Classic Hardcore)
Ottawa’s fasted band. Killer rip yer head off riffage by Perogi Wizard Brandon, 88 fingers Larry lays down more bass notes than an abacus can handle & veteran drummer Dave always offers free tickets to his gun & chest show.
THUNDERUNCLE X (Ottawa Metal)
Formed as a side project by friends playing in various Ottawa bands who had a passion for, but no outlet for their inner hard rock demons. Members have been active in the Ottawa music scene since the early 80's, playing in a variety of bands including seminal Ottawa punk bands Fluid Waffle, Furnaceface and Neanderthal Sponge. The debut release from the band is planned for late 2016 and will include sessions from 2015 and 2016. While there is a plethora of influences within the band, the sound has evolved into a hybrid of NWOBHM and the hard rock scene in the Scandinavian countries in the late 90's.
