The Classy Chassys, are a Saskatoon based Hard Rockabilly band. What is rockabilly you may ask…People tend to think Elvis, Johnny Cash and other 50s artists. However the group’s various influences of rock and roll, punk, blues, jazz and more combine to create a high energy, hard hitting sound, leaving you with visions of bands like Flogging Molly, Rancid, and AC/DC. With an emphasis on an explosive live show, guitarist/singer Matt Joyal, upright bassist Dan Neumeier, Saxophonist Kenny Martelli, and drummer Luke Saretsky prove that this ain’t just 50’s music anymore. The Classy Chassys have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many great acts including Saskatoon’s own The Sheepdogs and One Bad Son. After releasing their debut album Ain’t No Thang in the spring of 2013, they have since joined forces with Danny Craig of Default to produce the Rebel Heart EP, releaded February 2015. Watch for The Classy Chassys, sure to be running through your town soon, doing their thang…continuing to put the rock in rockabilly, and to do it With Class!
The Department Heads are a four-piece Canadian rock band from Saskatoon, SK that formed in the fall of 2012. The band’s line-up includes founders Arlan Kopp (bass), Sam Mitchell (drums) and Jeff Cox (guitar, backing vocals) and more recent addition Lindsay Adams (lead vocals).

Formed after the dissolution of previous band, Rhinkberger, this energetic hard riff rock quartet delivers serious musicianship with powerful female vocals. Described by one fan as, “rock and roll for smart people,” this foursome delivers a strong live performance and has something to offer fellow musicians and show-goers alike. Their sound has evolved to incorporate a variety of musical styles and influences including punk rock, heavy metal, desert rock and the likes of Danko Jones and Queens of the Stone Age.
