Bingo Players: This guy is a serious star in house and EDM circles; a big get for McMaster. The Dutch sensation was originally a duo. However, after one of the members passed away, the name and music continued as a solo act.
They’ve had top 40 hits all over the world. Here’s a taste:
The Jillionaire: Trinidad & Tobago native THE JILLIONAIRE fuses the Caribbean sounds of Soca and Reggae with influences of various music genres from around the world. The band has interests outside of music. Some of them are cited as: plotting world domination, turtle shells & whale bones and Victorian finery.
YYZ: A new-ish three-piece band that mixes talented vocals with electric guitars, synths and DJ/FX sounds. The interesting mix is worth a listen. You’ll definitely be movin’ and groovin’ at the concert.
The seond concert is on Saturday, September 6th at 7:00 p.m. in Faculty Hollow. It is only open to McMaster students.
This concert is !FREE! for McMaster students
Down With Webster: is a Canadian rap rock band out of Toronto. They attracted record labels and the world after winning the “best unsigned band” recognition from Rogers Mobile. Creating their own flavour of genre-bending sounds, they have been described as “the second coming of the beastie boys”.
Shad: is a Juno awarding winning Canadian hip-hop artist and critically-acclaimed MC. He is highly regarded for his humour, honesty and intelligence. His passion for music can be seen in all three of his albums which continue to pique to new levels of international interest.
Hollerado: is a Canadian indie rock band from Ottawa, Ontario where they won The Big Money Shot, a battle-of-the-bands competition hosted by Ottawa radio station Live 88.5. Garnering the interest on an international scale, and travelling alongside many acclaimed bands, it is no wonder they were nominated for the Best New Group Award at the 2011 Juno Awards.
