Last First Date Ever
Andre Pettipas And The Giants - No Fools No Fun Canadian New
Sing along anthem songs with ear worm hooks that will reel you in and release you into a musical wave of vintage grease coast rock n' roll attitude combined with 90's rock/pop sound.

Brothers, Andre and Travis Pettipas join long-time friend, Marcus Cosh to complete the harmony driven trio. Their live show is full of antics that will keep your head out of your cellphone and engaged on the stage.

Picture Tom Petty meeting up with the Black Crowes for a writing session but Axl Rose crashes the party and gets his two cents in whenever he can.

Playing On Thursday!

The Plan
Mazyn - s/t Canadian New
Mazyn is an emerging hip hop artist from Ottawa, Canada. Mazyn started writing raps in his dorm room as an Egyptian international student as a form of coping with homesickness, anxiety, and college stress - which eventually turned into songs he began to share with the world under his previous artist name “Capé”. In the span of one year of releasing music, he earned a nomination for "Hip Hop Artist of the Year" award in Ottawa by Faces Magazine in 2019. He also became a part of Shifter Magazine’s Top 10 Ottawa rappers and Capcityhiphop’s Top 50 rappers in 2019.

However, it seems like making music in his second language (English) wasn’t enough for the young artist. With his latest Arabic release in "Mafesh Monafes", Mazyn embraces his roots and is becoming a growing voice in his community and making it clear from the get-go that he is paving his own lane.
