Dwayne Gretzky is a live music collective celebrating the greatest songs of all time. Transcending both era and genre, this prodigiously talented group of Toronto musicians captivates audiences with a masterfully curated tour of artists from both the classic and modern pop canon - from Bowie to Beyoncé, Springsteen to Spears, The Supremes to The Strokes. With tasteful precision, chameleonic versatility and a flair for the dramatic, Dwayne Gretzky scratches our collective itch to be surprised by the familiar.
Brave Shores is a Toronto based synth-pop band that broke onto the scene with their infectious pop hit "Never Come Down". Chasing the success of that song, originally intended for a commercial, the band has evolved to become something of much more substance. Their new album "La Hoo La La" is being released in 2 parts, and proves a deeper and all around more mature body of work. Not straying far from the synth-pop genre, Brave Shores weaves together layers and layers of synthesizers, guitars, drum machines and vocals through thoughtfully crafted songs that range from loud dance-synth jams, to chill and vibey "space-mall" feels. The band has shared the stage with some of Canada’s most talented acts and have played the country’s best festivals including Pop Montreal, Field Trip, WayHome Music & Arts and Rifflandia.
The O’Pears are a Toronto-based contemporary folk trio made up of Lydia Persaud, Jill Harris and Meg Contini, three songwriters who weave stories that stir the spirit and capture the timeless character of folk music. Like Those Nights, their debut album, captures soaring harmonies and a seamless blend, evoking the profound intimacy of Nick Drake, the sister-like blend of The Staves and the dynamic harmony of Crosby, Stills, and Nash. Live performances turn the loudest bar into the warmest house concert, with their endearing, unabashed personalities balancing the intimate sincerity of the songwriting.
Teen Ravine’s Nick Rose and Dan Griffin want to get close but not too close; a sentiment that may well be the hallmark of a generation’s struggle with the desire for, and fear of, intimacy. The two began collaborating from their apartment studios in Toronto in the spring of 2016, exploring themes of emotional alienation through the obsessive intimacy of bedroom recordings while aspiring to the west-coast pop/R&B of the late 70s and early 80s. In 2017 Teen Ravine independently released a pair of singles which garnered critical acclaim from music publications including Noisey, Line of Best Fit and Vulture. Their debut album is set to be released later this year.
Raised on a healthy dose of the country music narrative and the spiritual motivation of hymns, Lydia Persaud is reconnecting with her roots with her debut EP “Low Light”. Lydia's active involvement in the Toronto music scene has brought her to play with such artists as; The O'Pears, Dwayne Gretzky, Lee Fields, Jill Barber, Royal Wood, Jadea Kelly and Karl Wolf. Set to release her first full length album in spring of 2019, Lydia continues to combine folk story-telling with a soulful vocal delivery.
Rodrigo Fernandez-Stoll is a comedian and actor from Toronto. He's appeared in shows like Kim's Convenience, Baroness Von Sketch, The Beaverton, and The Amazing Gayl Pile. Rodrigo co-produces & co-hosts 'Fog and Lasers' on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at Toronto's Comedy Bar.
LISA’s offbeat style is genuinely disarming and naturally draws you in. Born and raised in Montreal, this eclectic artist manages to create music that is both nostalgic and avant-garde. Playful melodies washed in dreamy synths, recall bands such as The Zombies and Angel Olsen. Over the past year, LISA has been recording her first album on the Isle of Wight with UK producer David Granshaw. She is delighted to be debuting at Camp Dwayne alongside so many talented buds.
The Templeton Philharmonic are a Toronto-based comedy duo comprised of Gwynne Phillips (HBO's SENSITIVE SKIN, PBS's ODD SQUAD) and Briana Templeton (SyFy's THE EXPANSE, The Comedy Network's THE BEAVERTON). The two are known for their sketches which blend period pieces, surrealism, dance sequences and biting social commentary - all with a feminist bent.
They've performed at festivals like the San Francisco Sketchfest, New York City Sketchfest, and even on stage at Massey Hall one time with astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield. They've picked up awards for their work like "Producer's Pick" at Toronto Sketchfest, "Patron's Pick" at the Toronto Fringe Festival and "Best Comedy Duo" at the LA Comedy Festival.
