Home Grown Live Music Festival

Local musicians, venues and volunteers have again enthusiastically stepped up to re-create the HomeGrown Live Music Festival

Sweet Talk Jackie -1am
Formed in 2015, members consist of Cole Lelanc (Vocals & Guitar), Cameron Gravelle (Bass), and Steve Vanden Engel (Drums). "We play music for the love, the high, the feeling of creating something. ...If you want to know what we are all about, just listen to the music. Come out to a live show and let loose!"

Rocket Surgery - 12am
Years ago, Rueben DeGroot investigated a possible zombie apocalypse, but turns out they were just a regular folks helplessly wandering lower Princess St. seeing a 7-piece band resembling Steely Dan with Star Wars undertones. Ever the crowd-pleaser, he assembled a fine band (including bandmates of Joe Chithalen) at The Toucan (Monday's), when they're not touring the Kessel Run.

Apollo - 11pm
Presenting a diverse mix of musical styles raning froom hip hop to alternative rock, since early 2014 they've been recording original songs to build a portfolio. Adam Chartrand, Vidal Ortiz, Kyle Palmer and Lucas Ruddell continue to make a name for themselves around southern Ontario. 

Almost Kennedy - 10pm
This alt-rock four piece, based in Ottawa, formed in 2016. They've spent the last year playing shows and festival dates across Ontario. Following their recently released single "Come Find Me", they will be heading back into the stufio in May to finish recording a second EP. 

Sweep Trio - 9pm
This Kingston blues and indie-rock outfit focused on tight live chemistry and improvisation. Vocalist/guitarist Sean Patterson, bassist Logan Morris, and drummer Jordan Bulhoes present a diverse background of musical styles and influences. Punchy funk and blues-styled riffs, combined with catchu hooks and thoughtful songwriting, make for an exciting and fresh live experience - never the same way twice.
