The VanRays:
It's a Motown beat down in a shark skin suit. It's wailing like its gospel while they're laying in the boots. It's a curb stomping rhythm on the corner of control. It's a nod in the direction, when all the shoes had leather souls. And to when those shoes were twisting, to Otis and to James. And so now do, The VanRays too, we are here to do the same.

Powerful vocals, backed up by a full rhythm and horn section.
Indie rock, soul, and R&B from Vancouver, Canada. Cleaned up and ready to meet your parents.

The Pillocks :
When five Vancouver music veterans formed The Pillocks 15 year ago they created their own brand of guitar-based alternative jangle pop. The band's wide variety of influences from The Clash to Dylan to Wilco has them rocking styles as diverse as alt-country, R&B and reggae.

The band has recorded two well-received albums in some of Vancouver's finest recording studios. Their own compositions often explore political, humorous and social themes.

The Pillocks have shared the bill with many diverse and popular acts including Carly Rae Jepson and Valdy. The live shows are always fun, energetic events from start to finish blending eclectic covers with contemporary original songs. Currently the band is writing and pre-production for their third album to be released later in 2019.
