The Molly Hogans: high energy action with their East Coast/Irish tunes mixed with your favourite rock and country upbeat dance songs.  Doug Folkins, Grant McLellan, Dallas Carrie and Richard Franklin make up the Molly Hogans.

The Impalas: a local four piece band well known for their 50s, 60s and 70s rock and roll dance songs. Amazing harmonies and stellar musicianship make this band a must see every time they take the stage.

Singing all the big hits from the 1950s to 1980s you’ll be sure to find yourself singing along and dancing to the great tunes from the past.

Doug, Teva & Finna McGillis: a father/son/granddaughter team. Their musical styles are quite different; however, they enjoy many of the same artists.

Teva can play all the stuff Doug wishes he could, and is the lead guitar player for Novo, a local “no holds barred ” Gospel Band.  Teva has two daughters who are budding musicians and song writers, in their own right.

She is a young woman who exercises her musical abilities by playing guitar, piano and percussion as well as composing her own songs
