Rock 'n' Roll Revival - North of the Border


Vancouver based Indie Blues / Southern Rock band.

Cupla started as a two man project by identical twins Bill & Bob McAloney hence the name " Cupla " which is Irish for twins. They soon realized they needed a voice to reach to the fans , they found this voice close to home in Tricia McAloney.  They recently added Ken Li from another band and connected right away having the same influences in music as the other 3 and has now taken the " Lead " guitar position! Finally our newest addition and the thunder behind the band Travis Rankin

Cupla-I'm Going

They recently released ‘Letters Home’ LP and were selected 99.3 CFox Band of the Month for December.

The Sheepdogs

Saskatoon’s The Sheepdogs Good Ol' Fashioned Rock and Roll. Ewan Currie - Guitar and Vocals, Leot Hanson - Guitar, Ryan Gullen - Bass and Backing Vocals, Sam Corbett-Drums and Backing Vocals.
Their latest album, Learn & Burn, available on iTunes ranges from ferocious rockers to southern boogie and grooving psychedelia. Big guitars, stacked harmonies, vintage organ and piano skillfully colour each of the album's 15 tracks, proving that these boys are as dedicated to the craft of songwriting and album making as they are to playing a dynamite live show. The Sheepdogs are an old-school rock and roll revival.

Here's a couple songs from their Daytrotter Session 12-02-2010
