BUSTY AND THE BASS, born out of small, impromptu Montreal house parties has evolved to become a tight funk/soul band playing powerful original music and innovative covers. Now frequenting some of the cities finest venues including l’Astral, Sala Rosa, Divan Orange, and Les Bobards, “Busty” is one of Montreal’s most vibrant and exciting collectives on the scene today. To attend a Busty show is to be filled with a powerful sensation of energy and freedom, making dancing and shouting irresistible.

KC ROBERTS & THE LIVE REVOLUTION (KCLR) are proud purveyors of beautiful vintage music (funk, jazz, rock), with an artistic obligation to shift all that's sacredly funky and soulful into the current phase of popular music (hip-hop, house, electronic, Drum n' Bass). Essentially an original 8-piece funk band, KCLR is well-known for its energized live performances winning the 2007 Toronto Independent Music Award for best live act. torontomusicscene.ca writes, "Their live shows are absolutely mind-blowing; the band is something entirely unique and influenced by atypical genres." Matt Bauer of Exclaim! Magazine writes, "If one needed proof of the vitality and authenticity of new Canadian funk music, they need look no further."
