Daniel James Bio:
Schooled on musical icons at a very young age by immense amounts of classic VHS tapes, Daniel James picked up the guitar and ran with it. First performing professionally at age nine, he has shared the stage with such names as Les Paul, April Wine, the Sheepdogs, the Trews, King's X, Colin James, Everclear, Gin Blossoms, Finger Eleven, Three Doors Down, Kim Mitchell & Jeff Martin, as well as performing at esteemed venues from New York's Apollo Theatre to Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom. After years primarily spent backing artists such as Lee Aaron, No Sinner and The Led Zeppelin Show. Daniel James’ Brass Camel is a unique musical assault with a swathe of fresh progressive-funk numbers with which to boogie ya down!
The Vidos Bio:
THE V!DOS (Vancouver BC). The band, whose average age is 20 years old, collaborate with producer Danny Craig (One Bad Son, Whale and the Wolf, The Classy Chassys) to create a new wave of energetic, fuzzy rock and roll.
So far in 2017 the band has played two opening slots at The Commodore Ballroom, for Live Nation Presents Age of Electric, and Live Nation Presents Daniel Wesley. In between these two shows the group played a direct support slot, opening for The Pack A.D at CJ's in Kamloops. Currently the band is in the studio recording a new record, which puts them on course to drop the first single towards the end of the summer.
The Vidos had a number of noteworthy shows in 2016, including a few performances at CMW and opening slots with bands like Pop Evil, JPNSGRLS, and PRISM. They dropped the single "CAR TROUBLE" to radio in early October, featuring spins at CIFM Kamloops, POWER 104 Kelowna, C-JAY 92 Calgary, X-92 Calgary, THE BEAR Edmonton, THE DRIVE Red Deer, KRZQ Reno, & several others. They also scored regular rotation at THE WOLF Regina. At the same time "Car Trouble" hit the airwaves, they released the music video, directed by Dave Benedict (Square Egg). The release was well-recieved, resulting in the band independently charting to #39 on the Canadian active-rock charts.
