Joshua Arden Miller and The Pappy Johns Band

The Pappy Johns Blues Band are excellent LIVE entertainers. Performing complex musical arrangements that can strike an emotional response from their audience. These experienced musicians have a captivating stage presence.
Don Powless on bass guitar and Oren Doxtator on the drums are brother in-laws that supply the Pappy Johns Blues Band with a tight soulful rhythm section accredited for working together over 30 years. Their thick backbone serves as the canvas and back drop for pianist, organist, vocalist virtuoso John Lee and frontman lead guitar/Vocals Josh Miller. The rocking soulful blues style is energizing and at times hints at the sweetness of jazz composition, stretching genre boundaries while keeping it tightly woven, creating a delicious jolt of electric blues compote.

Madison Violet

Musicians. Wanderers. Artists.

After 20 years together, Juno nominated singer-songwriting duo, Madison Violet, are as much wanderers as they are musicians. It is a career filled with endless roads stretching into the horizon, winding through changing landscapes, each kilometer traveled carrying with it the promise of inspiration. Perhaps that is the secret of what has made Madison Violet such an enduring band. Because with each new town, each new venue, their curiosity grows, their love of music deepens, their desire to push musical boundaries expands. 

It is believed that the spark that ignited Madison Violet’s irrepressible curiosity came from an unlikely source; while sitting in Brenley’s grandmother’s kitchen in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, filled to bursting with family, friends, instruments (and maybe even a foe or two), and miles from their adopted home of Toronto, Ontario, two musicians looked at each over the flickering light of the old wood stove and knew that theirs would be an unconventional journey. Inspired by their heritage, emboldened by their vision, Lisa MacIsaac and Brenley MacEachern decided that they would create a sound that would have it’s roots in their past while continually exploring new sounds. From the beginning, the multi-instrumentalists have carried authenticity with them like a talisman, writing all of their own music and lyrics, believing that the best way to connect to their audiences was to treat them like old friends sharing a secret and a smile. As vocalists they have an innate ability to break your heart, slyly knowing that their soaring harmonies will mend it, often all in the span of one song.
