Country Bumpkin' Tour “A sassy and dynamic rockabilly singer, songwriter and guitarist, creating a national buzz with some slightly cheeky music and a captivating charisma fueled by her roaring voice and model beauty.” – Nick Krewen, Toronto Star With her sultry and powerful voice, her sassy and commanding stage presence, and a repertoire that blends country, rock n’ roll and blues, Ginger St. James packs a lot of entertainment into her 5-foot frame. Following the tradition of country songbirds like Loretta Lynn, Ginger writes and sings music from real experience; growing up on the family farm, being broke, having fun, and love gone wrong. Her early life in Binbrook, Ontario was heavily influenced by American southern culture, listening to country radio in the barn. Although trips with Dad to the vintage car and rockabilly shows had their impact, her signature song ‘Ramblin’ Country Bumpkin’, proves that this gal is more Hee Haw than Happy Days.×

Spring has sprung with Toronto's finest hailing from the Cameron House!
Though they’ve been playing together since 2006, the members of Toronto-based pop-rock quartet Jane’s Party – Devon Richardson, Tom Ionescu, Jeff Giles, and Zach Sutton – feel like they’re just starting to gather steam.
Ready to take off after years roving Toronto’s vibrant bar scene and touring great swaths of Canada, their third full-length album, Tunnel Visions, arrives as their most confident and mature effort to date. Produced by Blue Rodeo’s Greg Keelor and recorded at his remote farm in Southern Ontario, it’s comprised of songs about being on the road, about losing loved ones, about growing up and coming to grips with life.
Even while running the gamut of emotions and themes, the bandmates never lose the buoyant, hooky songwriting or soulful harmonies they’ve honed over nearly a decade of collaboration, and their hard-won chemistry is evident in how effortless the execution comes off. With Tunnel Visions, they offer an original take on a classic sound, with compositions that feel at once familiar and fresh. Their diverse array of sounds jumps across and often fuses genres – from folk to funk to stripped-down guitar rock, with synth-pop flourishes and splashes of grunge. These are plaintive songs and gritty songs, songs that strike a tonal balance between chip-on-the-shoulder tenacity and Sunday morning malaise, between small-town intimacy and big-city bravado.
The production, too, is polished to a sheen, with input from outside voices entering the picture for the first time. Lead single “Coming on Strong” is co-produced by The Darcys and features legendary singer/songwriter Jim Cuddy on backing vocals. The album, mixed by Chris Stringer and mastered by Joao Carvalho, showcases a sound that’s more layered and sonically rich than anything the band has created thus far. This is a long way from the Jane’s Party that recorded and self-produced their debut album in a garage in Toronto’s Jane and Finch neighbourhood.
Since then, they’ve collaborated and shared the stage with Blue Rodeo, Sam Roberts Band, The Arkells, Wintersleep, Matt Mays, The Maccabees, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Tom Odell, Lights, Manic Street Preachers, and others. They’ve come up in the world, and people are starting to take notice.
Two years in the making, Tunnel Visions speaks of a band that’s found itself, and of one of Toronto’s best-kept secrets stepping out of the shadows.

We are very excited to welcome our good friends The Good Lovelies back to Sault Ste Marie. The last time they toured through town was with Stuart McLean and the Vinyl Cafe. Since their last visit they have won a JUNO and 4 CFMA Awards. But what really makes them special is their bond with the audience and with each other. You can feel how much fun they are having and that you are a part of. With Burn The Plan a long-awaited new album, Good Lovelies are both fulfilling and defying their so-called musical destiny as a “folk trio.” What makes this Burn The Plan special is that the band’s considerable strengths – winsome songwriting, impeccable vocals, and triangulated charisma – don’t tell the full story. There’s a new spirit of adventurousness that gives Burn The Plan an extra spark; the album is permeated with textures and tones from musical worlds away. 2011’s Juno-nominated Let The Rain Fall was the last time the Good Lovelies released a full-length studio album. It may not feel so long ago, since the band’s profile has continued to grow with awards, steady and sold-out touring, and a live album in between, but you can do a whole lotta living, loving and letting go in four years. For Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, four years has been the exact number of hours, moments and experiences needed to take the next step, to burn the plan. This is a general admission show and will be licensed so come early and enjoy.×
Hollerado LIVE @Loplops Presented by: Girl Friday Productions Tuesday May 30th Tickets $25 in advance Doors 8:30pm Other acts: Everett Bird & Little Junior Tickets on sale now at loplops.com Hollerado's debut album Record In A Bag came out in 2009 and received a Canadian JUNO award nomination for Best New Artist. Their incredible “Americanarama” video garnered over 1.4 Million YouTube views with its forcefully creative approach to video making, and the album spawned the Top 10 radio hits “Americanarama” and “Juliette” as well as Top 20 radio hit "Got To Lose." The launch of White Paint followed, their 2013 studio release, which included the Top 10 song and video for “So It Goes,” a wrenchingly personal story about lead singer Menno Versteeg's Dutch grandfather, whose life was spared in World World II. Hollerado's band ethos is spent building a music community of music loving fans, so it's no surprise that 2015's 111 Songs was a project where they wrote custom songs for specific fans. This exhaustive continuous songwriting project built the working framework for the release for their new single, “Born Yesterday, which hints at the sheer energy of musical and creative offerings to come from the band in 2017.
