Live performances are the very essence of Sinnerboy, filled with authenticity, passion and many-many songs of their hero, Rory.

Canned Heat is a blues-rock/boogie band that formed in Los Angeles in 1965. The group has been noted for its own interpretations of blues material as well as for efforts to promote the interest in this type of music and its original artists.

Slow Dazzle are a rock band, first appearing in March 2009, and are from the UK. Addressing grown-up angst with intelligent lyrics and catchy yet sometimes heavy tunes, their all-original 2 1/2 hour live set is worth catching if you can, as these themes are addressed with energy and drive on tap from this small powerhouse of a band. Make no mistake, it is a BIG sound live. In short sharp punchy tunes , some almost poppy, such as "Eyes Full of Gold Like the Universe", this trio gel into a tight rythmic powerhouse.
