Crimson Reign – Homegrown band, Crimson Reign, consisting of locals Cam Wilkison, Dylan Weyler, and Callum Jackman — return to their old stomping grounds to shake the Island Music scene once again. Crimson Reign swept into Vancouver to fulfill their musical destiny a year ago. With the addition of Jacob Stones on bass, Crimson Reign is gaining much deserved buzz as one of the best live shows in the Vancouver club scene. The band is eagerly awaiting their return home to play for their friends, family, and fans, as well as revisit several local musicians they feel honored to have had the chance to play with and that have helped and inspired them along their journey.
The Molly Hogans are high energy action with their East Coast/Irish tunes mixed with your favorite rock and country upbeat dance songs. Doug Folkins, Grant McLellan, Dallas Carrie and Richard Franklin make up the Molly Hogans.
Theo is a local three-piece band fronted by Nigel Nikolaisen with Gerrit Dooris on bass and Jon Carriere on skins. Theo is well known around Campbell River for their soulful vocals and groove rhythms. Along with their original material they cover songs from such artists as Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Sublime and Neil Young.
Doug McGillis and Judy Berk – Judy & Doug met at the Wednesday night song circle at Serious Coffee in Willow Point. Seeing the ad for the Salmon Festival entertainment audition, one said to the other ….“What the heck, let’s practice a couple of songs and try out.” With Berk on the accordion and McGillis on guitar and vocals, this charming duo captures audience attention with their blend of easy listening folk and praise songs.
Fiftieth Parallel – After trading metal for acoustic, Phil Marchand and Jonathan Hinds formed Fiftieth Parallel. Fiftieth Parallel adds their own unique sound to the already vibrant Vancouver Island music scene, and has been feverishly performing throughout the Comox Valley for the last eight months. With opening slots for Delhi 2 Dublin and Shane Philip under their belt, and performances at Rhythm on the Rock, Big Time Out, and Cortes Island Music Fest in the pipeline, you’ll want to catch them live while they’re still in the area.
