Amistad: Amistad is an alternative 5-piece band from Vernon B.C. Canada who continues to shake heads with their epic sounds and impressive songwriting chops. Unsatisfied to churn out simple three-minute rock standards, they continue to challenge their craft by hiking to new songwriting heights and attacking each new live show with the relentless energy of a band on the verge.
Walk off the Earth: Walk Off The Earth is an unconventional, multi-talented five-piece musical phenomena. Since the debut of their brilliant 5-people-playing-one-guitar interpretation of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know” exploded on Youtube, the band has taken the world by storm. New fans from around the world immediately fell in love with their organic, independent, sincere and honest original songwriting, cover interpretations and beautifully filmed videos. Their independent spirit, unstoppable work ethic and awe-inspiring creativity has catapulted Walk Off The Earth into new and uncharted waters with only bigger and better things on the horizon.
Approx. end time: 6:50 p.m.
