Angel Down with Malibu Knights and Live on Brighton

Greater Vancouver Area Hard Rock band Angel Down came together in 2007 and began creating their own style of hard rock by combining melodic vocals, pulsing rhythms and heavy guitar riffs. Building around the song writing core of Gordie B (vocals) and Joel Logan (Guitar/Vocals), with LT driving the band on Drums, Angel Down found the remaining key member for the band in 2010 when Jay “” Graham joined the project on bass/vocals. A tighter, more collaborative group of Artists would be hard to find.

Unless you are really into slinky hothouse Gypsy jazz, you've probably never heard of Denis Chang. A constant presence on the Montreal jazz scene, guitarist Denis Chang spreads the good news under the watchful eye of Django Reinhardt, father of gypsy jazz.

Chang's formative years were spent alongside the greatest Jazz Manouche guitarists. This young guitarist quickly developed his own style inspired by his biggest influences Bach, Chopin, George Benson and Michael Jackson. Chang's sense of musical openness and his ability to breathe new life into tunes that might be considered an odd fit for "Gypsy Jazz" have earned him the right to push the boundaries.
