Fifth Way aims to instill in their listeners a life expressed through rock: the dominant form of music. With diverse backgrounds, Fifth Way is bringing their rock and roll spectacle to all the stages that can handle it. Front man Tim Gossman’s powerful vocal styling’s are accompanied by the twin guitar attack of lead players Zak Stemlaszek and cohort Adam Trahan. Anthony Palsgrove, the man in charge of the low end, hollers at your with his precision and timeliness. Chris Castro, the clock man, hits hard, hits often and maintains a tight ship.

'DOA Sunday'

Citizen Zero creates thoughtful and meaningful modern rock. Their songs sound like instant classics without being dated; that sound relevant but are never trendy. And most importantly, Citizen Zero ROCKS. Their enduring commitment to their music is a living tribute to their fallen brother. Their sophomore EP, 'Life Explodes,' will drop in October 2012, a triumph both sonically and personally for the resilient young rock musicians that are Citizen Zero.

Formed in early 2008, Seven Year Riot has left their mark on thousands as they blazed their way through Ontario. Their mission statement is simple: "We're here to make you move your body... clothing optional."
