THE SENTRIES
(Ottawa TARG’s Resident Ska Band)
The Sentries are a ska, reggae & rocksteady band from Ottawa, ON, Canada. Evolved from decades of combined musicalexperience, and dozens of performing groups both past and present, their rock solid foundation is formed from an ever expanding crew of hard working musicians, with ties across all branches of music. Their latest release HOT Session invites you to groove to 5 killer memorable tracks!

SOUND ONE (TO Ska/Calypso/Rocksteady)
You like brass? How about 3 sax + trombone + trumpet.  Sounds of the 60’s, for entertainment and self-indulgence. This collective of skilled players blend elements of Ska, Calypso, Rock Steady, Burru drumming and Jazz. Thoughtful music, played thoughtlessly, but with heart and soul. Attractive, full-bodied songs, with flexibility and flow. The best music is never very far from dance.

THE OBSIDIANS (Ottawa Surf Rock)
What perfect way to kick off THE TARANTINO SHOW with a little home grown Instrumental Surf.... THE OBSIDIANS do it right.... fast riffs and heavy hits. F.O.F. - Dick Dale, Jim Messina and the Jesters, Shadowy Men from a Shadowy Planet, The Space Cossacks, Los Twang! Marvels, The Aqualads
