backbeat school of rock

STUDENTS OF ROCK AND ROLL

The "Jack Black" of music schools, Backbeat teaches kids music by putting them into rock bands and letting them experience the rush of live performance.

THE FORTRELLES

DANCING SHOES REQUIRED

Gather together for an evening of soul stirring soul revival with Edmonton's own Fortrelles.

Fresh treatments of 1960's girl group classics that you know and love. Think The Sonics meet The Supremes, with a little spit and polish (and hairspray), you get these shimmy shakin' sirens of garage, rock and soul.

THE AWESOMEHOTS

SONGBIRDS

The AwesomeHots are an Irreverant Parlour Folk duo from Whiskeytown, Alberta.

With a musical tea steeped in nostalgia, sweetened with a songbird voice, roughed up with a squeeze of country twang and bolstered by a jigger of Canadian whiskey, the AwesomeHots serve up a hot toddy of irreverent parlour folk. It's tent meeting gospel hymns meets a boozy campfire singalong MC'd by Dean Martin and Phylis Diller.

WOOL ON WOLVES

CANADIAN FOLK ROCK

Wool on Wolves is the product of an ever-evolving collaboration of five songwriters, a band in which everyone works for the song. 

There is a thoughtful nature to their creative process: all opinions have the same merit, every idea receives equal opportunity, and everyone contributes to authoring the group's unique sound. The result leaves audiences smiling, dancing, and thinking.

SHOUT OUT OUT OUT OUT

ELECTRONIC HEADLINERS

Shout Out Out Out Out emerged from the frozen north as an all-rhythm section, high-kicking, collection of local rock stalwarts, diving headfirst into the world of electronic music.

A formidable force and a live spectacle from the get-go, with two drummers, four bass players, and an entirely appropriate mountain of analog synthesizers.
