With varied musical backgrounds and a combined love of ska & reggae, the nine members of Brehdren bring in elements of jazz, indie pop and progressive rock to create their unique flavour. Based around a crazy, energetic front man, the rhythm and horn section cover a range of ground from extended jams to two-minute freak outs. Not to be missed.

Being driven by diversity, Kownterpoint aims to please a wide ranged crowd. With their roots mainly being set in the 90's Punk, Reggae, Ska style, they also become quite unpredictable live. With such a wide range of influences, they are known for venturing into Blues, Jazz and Rockabilly styles among many others. Feeding off the energy of their live show and strictly playing original material, they love to leave room for improv, which showcases these guys love for the "Jam Band" scene as well.
Featuring Mike(vocals/guitar) and Kyle(bass/vocals) Langlois up front, you can sense the natural tightness that they have crafted together over time since childhood. Backed by the impeccable Cabbage on the drums, the transitions are flawless as they race through multi genres, sending your head spinning, all while taking place in the same song. Be sure to catch the next show...as its never the same as the last! Currently working on a new album, keep an ear out for these guys, as there's consistently something fresh they have to offer.
