Fortune Sound Club
147 East Pender Street. Vancouver

Although there are numerous, conflicting, tales of how, when, where, and sometimes why the Dead Milkmen initially formed, the most reliable evidence points to band founder Joe Jack Talcum’s decision, in the late 1970?s, to create a band based entirely upon a group of woodcuts he discovered in the basement of The Vatican. Talcum then recruited acquaintance Rodney Anonymous and the pair immediately set about unlearning everything they had previously learned about music and spending countless hours screaming at inanimate objects.

In 1982 bassist Dave Blood was added to the group after impressing Talcum and Anonymous with his ability to cover passing vehicles with ketchup. Shortly afterward, and entirely against his own will and better judgment, drummer Dean Clean joined the band.

• About Danko Jones •
Named after their bandleader, Danko Jones are a Canadian hard rock trio whose bluesy style is rooted in the tradition of Thin Lizzy and AC/DC and whose popularity in Western Europe compensates for their lack of recognition in the neighboring United States. The band was founded in Toronto, Ontario, in 1996 and made its recording debut in 1998 with a five-track self-titled EP on Sonic Unyon. A follow-up EP on Sound King Records, My Love Is Bold (1999), garnered airplay on Canadian hard rock radio, setting the stage for I’m Alive and on Fire (2001), a 13-track compilation of the band’s recording output from 1996 to 1999. Fast forward to the present, Danko Jones has revealed the title of their 7th studio album, Fire Music. The album will be the first to feature new drummer Rich Knox – scheduled to be released on February 10th.

About The Band

The Steadies take the explosively popular Top 40 sound and mix it with rocksteady and reggae influences, creating what theyve dubbed, island rock. No matter your mood, The Steadies pick you up and carry you to the beach in your mind, the club in your dreams, the place you go to clear your head and dance. Its a scene where rumbling fault lines rip open the dance floor, and the only thing that keeps you from falling over is the gravitational pull of the steady beat. The Steadies arent invited to the party—they are the party.

Their latest release, Starcity Shakedown (November 29th 2013), is an ode to the band’s rocksteady roots and continues to build on the bands signature style. Starcity Shakedown marks their first release since the 2011 self-titled EP which garnered a top-50 hit in Canada and was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award.

Ever the road warriors, The Steadies play upwards of 100 shows each year, making them one of the busiest bands in Saskatchewan. They have headlined numerous festivals, showcased at industry events and have shared the stage with Ziggy Marley, The Roots, Blue Rodeo, The Wailers and more.

Earl Pereira: Lead Vocals + Bass

Justin ‘Juice’ Lee: Vocals + Guitar

Lexie Miller: Vocals + Drums

////// About The Steadies’ Frontman //////

Earl Pereira got his rock n roll pedigree as a founding member of the popular Canadian band Wide Mouth Mason, who had two gold records, three JUNO nominations, and a host of other accolades and awards. Pereira has toured the world, playing over 3000 shows and opening for iconic artists like the Rolling Stones, AC/DC and Nelly Furtado. He was named one of Canadas top bass players by Canadian Music Magazine and has been featured on MTV, Muchmusic, and the Ryan Seacrest Show, as well as in publications like Rolling Stone Magazine and The National Post. Pereira co-produced and co-wrote Wide Mouth Masons entire award-winning catalogue. He has worked with a roster of legendary producers including David Leonard (Paul McCartney, Prince), Joel Van Dyke (Aerosmith, Bryan Adams) and Todd Burke (Red Hot Chili Peppers, No Doubt, Johnny Cash). In 2010, with demand for his side project on the rise, Pereira left Wide Mouth Mason behind (here’s a great story discussing his departure from the band) to pursue The Steadies full-time.

ALY & FILA

As hot as the Sahara and standing every bit as tall as pyramids, theyre the single most successful group to have emerged from the spiritual lands of Egypt. From the Med to the Red and from up high in Cairo, to down deep in the Sinai, theyve built an immense, ultra-loyal in-country following, From that foothold turntable Shamans, Aly Amr Fathalah and Fadi Wassef Naguib went global. With their career-launching Egyptrance releases (inc. Eye of Horus and Spirit of Ka) through to latter-day master-blasters like We Control The Sunlight, their production credentials are only now matched by their spinning ones. Ranked as one of the 20 biggest DJ acts in EDM (source: DJ Magazine Top 100 DJs 2012), they delight crowds now numbered annually in the millions, bringing their inimitable sound to the worlds most prestigious clubs and festivals. No mirage, no illusion – this is Aly & Fila.

For close to a decade their spirited take on the trance sound has captured the hearts, minds and imaginations of planet trance. With their whip-smart productions and sandstorm sonics, their performances have raised the bar at some of the worlds most recognized clubs. Comparably theyve also ruled at EDMs biggest festivals EDC – Las Vegas, Tomorrowland, Global Gathering, Dance Valley, Stereosonic, WMC and Full On Ferry to name just a few. Continuing in a long tradition of playing the worlds most established and respected stages, in Spring 2013 they will rock ASOT600. Marking the 7th successive year theyd done so, the Egyptian duo are the only spinners aside from Armin Van Buuren and Markus Schulz to have played such a run. This combined force of production and turntable feats has resulted in string of high charting positions in several of EDMs key polls. Included amongst them are six consecutive years in DJ Mags annual countdown (reaching #19 in 2012) and a #4 notch on TranceAddicts Top 250 in the same year.

Spreading the A&F message around the globe is their Future Sound of Egypt radio show. Beaming to countless thousands of desktops every week, August 2012 saw its 250th episode hit airwaves. This was marked by the FSOE250 event, which drew fans from all four corners to the Egyptian resort of Sharm El Sheik to see them spin alongside DJs inc. Ferry Corsten, W&W, Shogun and Sean Tyas. With the 300th show primed for 2013, FSOE300 will expand into a multi-date, multi-country world tour experience.

The Future Sound of Egypt marque is further amplified by Aly & Filas widely respected imprint of the same name. A label sub-division of the industry leading Armada Music empire, through it they have rained continuous floor-fire, with one A-list championed release following another. With We Control the Sunlight, the pair scored the biggest trance track of the year when the listeners of Armin Van Buuren’s A State of Trance radio show voted it Tune of 2011. Throughout 2012 they continued to bring some of the years best music to club & festival sound-systems. Among them were collaborations with Roger Shah (on Perfect Love) and Solarstone with Fireisland. It also saw them re-team with We Control singer Jawden on Coming Home, for a track that DJ Mag cited as making hairs stand up, goosebumps pop, hands shoot up and jaws meet floors! They also reworked Gareth Emerys Concrete Angel (which subsequently became the best-selling trance track of 2012), as well as other smash tracks from Andy Moor and Alex M.O.R.P.H.

Into the New Year and the cyphers for A&Fs future are every bit as filled with promise. Continuing to hold floors spellbound, their latest collaboration Vapourize (alongside John OCallaghan) has already delivered another Beatport slam-dunk. The single is the pathfinder release for the pairs hugely anticipated sophomore artist album Quiet Storm. The follow-up to 2010s Rising Sun debut, the long-players mission kismet is to bring another gravity defying selection of anthems to the worlds floors. Quiet Storms surge is set for 2013.

The Junkies style has continued to evolve over the years under the influence of various genres of electronic music, ranging from deep soulful house to techno and everything in between.

Holding a residency at the legendary Guvernment Nightclub as well as Footwork Bar keeps them educating the electronic faithful on a weekly basis in the undisputed capital of electronic music in Canada. This has given The Junkies an excellent platform to showcase their music, as well as playing alongside some of the worlds most respected artists on a regular basis including the likes of Dubfire, Marco Carola, Paco Osuna and Loco Dice just to name a few.

Production and remix work have been fundamental in pushing them forward both as artists and DJs. The duo just never seems to stop releasing and remixing tracks, which have gained massive support worldwide from many of the worlds top jocks. Attempting to the widen their horizon further, The Junkies are working on their own label imprint Local Music which will feature music from like minded artists as well as another avenue to showcase their own creativity as artists. Regular appearances on labels such as Rawthentic, Sci-Tec, Mindshake and Monique and have kept the duo busy with many more exciting projects to come.
