Fresh off winning Relix Magazine’s Jam-Off Contest -Band On the Rise, The Chameleon Project is once again busting onto the American scene. Armed with bass-heavy material, daring improvisations and mind-bending tonal colors, woven with elements of dub, jazz, disco, fusion and psychedlia the Project has been regularly astounding audiences by taking listeners to sonic places, yet uncharted in the realms of dance music.

The Out of Towners
Soul/Jazz/Boogaloo outfit The Out of Towners was borne out of the notoriously groovy Leeds, UK music scene, but they now call Toronto home. Guitarist Gareth Perry leads this band’s version of raw, charged, organ funk, complete with tight grooves and killer solos. Funk is all about good vibes and non-stop energy, and that’s exactly what the Out of Towners bring night after night.
