Dub Kartel
Raising up the standard of a dance floor”; the mission of this live, seven-piece Dancehall Reggae band, Dub Kartel.

Over the past five years, the Halifax (NS) based group has honed their sound in the Canadian festival, club, and bar circuits, developing their unique blend of high energy, all-original Reggae, Dancehall, and Hip-Hop. Through positivity and an all-inclusive attitude, Dub Kartel creates an interactive live experience filled with improvisation, that entertains both audience and band members alike. With the impending release of their debut, self-titled full-length LP, these “B’ys from down the east” could not be more excited to bring their sound “unlike no other” to as many stages as possible.

A tight-knit group of seven longtime friends, DK has spent the majority of their lives “jamming till the sun comes up” traveling and discovering new sounds together. A group of adrenaline junkies with a passion for good vibes and high-grade sensi, DK is a “full collective” of individuals who each represent an essential piece of the Dub Kartel sound.

Viewing each performance as a chance to create a new experience for their audiences and get their own creative juices pumping, their shows feature spontaneous guest appearances, new original mashups, free-styled verses and creative covers. Typically playing with no set list, DK prefers making their song choices based on the crowd’s energy allowing for spur of the moment selections that keeps everyone on their toes. DK has earned the reputation of being the ‘Best Band to Get Trashed to’ (The Coast Magazine Readers’ Poll, 2014-15) in Halifax and looks forward to defending that title in 2016.

Having already shared the stage with internationally-acclaimed acts such as Beenie Man, Gyptian and Ganga Giri, as well as Canadian stars Rich Aucoin, Shad and Kayo, the B’ys can’t wait to see what the future holds and to “spread that music” wherever they go.

Dub Kartel is: Tom Hill, Charlie Benoit, David “Badger” Stout, Richard McNeil, Charlie Hill, Teddy Skiffington and Kyle “KDZ” McCracken.

Lost Cousins
Lost Cousins
Formed in the basement of a student house in Kingston, ON, Lost Cousins is an indie rock outfit known for thoughtful songwriting, intricate arrangements and high-energy live shows. Over the past year and a half Lost Cousins has toured throughout Ontario and Quebec, playing with many acts including Hollerado, The Wooden Sky, and Zeus. The band recently released their debut EP, Not Now What We Were, produced by Darryl Neudorf (Neko Case, Blue Rodeo) and they finished in the Top 10 in the national CBC Searchlight competition. Focused on creating music that fills body and mind, Lost Cousins present lush harmonies and creative rhythms, giving their sound a unique and ethereal quality that is truly its own.
The Medicine Hat
The Medicine Hat is a five-piece band from Hamilton, Ontario making experimental pop music.

Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche's nimble, raw lyricism is illuminated by a voice like holy fire: blistering and purifying. Focussed guitar work dances with the hypnotic timbres and soaring melodies of analog synthesizers. Deft lines and dangerous grooves are intoned by a disciplined drum & bass combo. Chaos lurks beneath the surface of The Medicine Hat's tight motifs and rhythmic trances, erupting into moments of prophetic ecstasy. Their live performances are wild affairs. Brimstone at their heels, The Medicine Hat's contagious energy turns rooms into reveries.
Albeit - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Albeit is an alternative folk-rock band from Toronto Ontario. Influences include Hospitality, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bekah's ex-love interests.
Gravy Jones - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Gravy Jones is a four piece from Guelph Ontario that plays a style of rock and roll that is centred around head nodding grooves and catchy melodies, all produced with a modern sound. They are strongly influenced by classic rock but have a sound likened to groups such as Cake, Phish, Vampire Weekend, Tame Impala, and Kings of Leon. Gravy Jones is a true live band that can transcend into lengthy jams featuring solos on guitar, trumpet, or even fiddle. The group is currently supporting a 5 song EP released here at the Horseshoe Tavern, and is back in studio currently working on a new release.
