While fans are immediately struck by the evocative lyrics, they’re ultimately won over by MWB’s attention to ALL the elements that make for great rock music; the live show is pure energy, with smoking guitar leads, melodic rhythms, and a seriously infectious groove. Think Kings of Leon, the Killers.
The Van Tech Vocal Ensemble is a choir of about a dozen high school students who meet two early mornings a week to sing songs ranging from contemporary pieces to jazz numbers to ancient choral hymns. They sing in English, Latin, German, and are led by a teacher who encourages them to explore music in ways that will surprise everyone. They look forward to singing for you.
Alluvium is a 5-piece originally from Coquitlam, BC with a progressive, atmospheric sound that is very dynamic and experimental. We strive to create a blend of the musical appeal of older music and newer, more listener-friendly music. Our biggest influences include Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and Dream Theatre. We hope to make a statement with our energetic live show and our progressive music.
My name is Jenelle Burston, I am 21 years old and a female singer songwriter. I was born in Kelowna, I spent a few years living in England and have recently moved to Vancouver. I have been writing music since I was 10, I started on piano and moved to acoustic guitar when I was about 14. My style is indie folk rock, but I take influences from bands of all genres.

She Dreams In Colour is a 3-piece, all girls alternative/punk rock band from Surrey, BC. Members include lead vocalist and bassist, Devyn Bohun, guitarist Ashleigh George, and drummer Emma Star. Though they’ve only been together for a few months, they are excited to entertain as many people as possible with their music. The girls range between 14-17 years old, and alongside covering songs by their favourite artists, they also enjoy performing their own original material.
The Dead Messengers are; Kayden Kasprick, and Brock Phillips-Hing. We are from Fort Langley, BC. We’re heavily influenced by almost anything you name. Everyone takes something, out of everything. From Muddy Waters to Nine Inch Nails, we love music. Saying that might even be an understatement. Performing original songs and covering what we feel like, when we feel like it is what we do. Rock and Roll isn’t dead, we can prove it.
