Rachael Cardiello and the Warm Electric Winter along with The James Burrows Band are bringing all of their electric, dance-infused, neon songs to Cortes. Come on out for a sweaty summer night of music and catch these Toronto bands as they swing across the islands on their Canada-wide tour.


Rachael Cardiello was born in Tornado Alley, raised between mountains in Montana and now resides in Toronto where she leads a neon, electric soul band. A classically trained violist hooked on the harmonies of Motown and the storytelling of folk, Cardiello sings of mental institutes, cross border marriages, love affairs in attics, grief, ghosts, and an alternative version of the American dream. This is a bold, full-throttle dance party with the intimate counterpoint of chamber music, old time rock and roll, classic harmonies, and a world of sound. Having spent many summers touring with The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra, Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer, and Miss Quincy and the Showdown....Cardiello is ridiculously excited to bring her own music to the West.

"Close your eyes and you’ll find yourself somewhere between early Motown and the E-Street Band, with some folk wit and intellect (and the occasional bit of blues grit) for added flavour." - The Indie Blender


James Burrows is bringing his brand new album Paradise Cinema from Toronto with a five piece rock'n'roll band. Recorded in the Galaxy Smith Studios of Brooklyn, NY, this is an album grounded in the struggle to make the best out of what are all too often bad options. Heavily influenced by the sounds and spirit of early rock 'n' roll, the characters on Paradise Cinema deal with all the uncertainties of twenty-first century life while struggling to remember what life should feel like and, when possible, dance to spite the odds.
