NEW LOCAL MUSIC AND AN INTERVIEW with Unsociably High! This jazzy/soul-y Ottawa Duo is back with new music and tales of travel cut short by COVID!

Unsociably High is a Canadian duo from Ottawa, Ontario. Their sounds of smooth soul will take you from laying in the grass on a sunny day to sitting alone in a dark room contemplating life. Seasoned with sparkling vocals, funk progressions, and loop stations, Unsociably High presents a new wave of melodies that reduce the speed of heart beats.

They have performed in a variety of bars, cafes, and music venues in Ottawa, such as Art House Cafe, Avant Garde, and Live on Elgin. In February 2020, Unsociably High performed nude for a sold out life and death drawing anniversary at Arlington Five Cafe. Unsociably High is set to release a full production album on March 5th, 2021 which will be available on iTunes and Spotify.

Steeped in dark cinematic soundscapes and *complex, turn-on-a-dime arrangements, The Rebel Wheel features a frenetic mix of rock aggression, complex compositions and unpredictable odd-meter vamps. Originally formed in 1991 as a fusion-based midi ensemble, the floating lineup has gradually focused on a modern, more performance-oriented, genre-blending Prog.

Junkyard Symphony - Music for a Better Planet Canadian

Junkyard Symphony is an eco-entertainment company (eco standing for ecological and economical), that reuses junk to service all kinds of events for all ages. What do they do with all this junk? They do many things with junk but are best known for their amazing junk/percussion/comedy/circus shows. They also produce imaginative and innovative sports and games by reusing junk materials, have created several CD's using junk for instruments, and are presently working on a children's novel with a junk theme. Junkyard Symphony strives to promote environmental health and awareness through educational and extraordinary entertainment by reusing old ordinary objects that would otherwise be sadly destined for the junkyard. But to Junkyard Symphony, however, these objects are terrific treasures that can be reused for an even greater purpose.... creating lots of big smiles. In the show, the performers are the conductors while the audience is the symphony so be prepared for a radical ride of rapid rhythms, awesome antics, clownish comedy, terrific tricks, magnificent magic, tons of talent, and plenty of participation!
