Joy District (formerly MCM) is an Alternative Rock band comprised of brothers Eli and Jordi Hilberry and life long friends Lenny Parkin and Keelan Gamble, all hailing from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The deep, unspoken bond between Joy District's members contributes to their collaborative writing process and the high energy shows
for which they are known. Infectious vocal melodies, thick harmonies, a rock solid rhythm section, and gripping guitar solos define Joy District's modern, unique sound.
Working with producer Ryan Guldemond of Mother Mother, Joy District has been refining their sound and honing their songwriting skills. Following the recent release of two singles and a video, Joy District is currently working on their debut EP and preparing to launch their first Canadian tour.

Marguerite & The Moon Rovers came together after five years crossing paths and stages across the web of West Coast festivals. Being immersed in such a wide variety of music has led to an eclectic mix of sounds and genres ranging from soul, funk, reggae, rock and everything in between.
A graduate of Berklee College of Music, Marguerite Thompson captures the audience with her spellbinding jazz-tinged vocals. Electric guitar comes courtesy of Jesse McCloy, blending blazing solos with dreamy, atmospheric textures. Cory Joyce, conceived in the Bermuda Triangle, brings monster bass grooves, whoops, yells, ninja kicks and more. The bass is underpinned by solid grooves and intricate rhythms from Jonathan Hinds on drums.
