Hank & Lily
Hank Pine and Lily Fawn are a vaudeville-inspired duo from Victoria, British Columbia, whose act is based upon the tragic and hilarious adventures of their comic book series. Like the great acts of old, the music covers many genres, yet all stems from a punk rock ethic, and an appreciation for the delicate art of entertaining.Hank is a tall, dark, and mysterious figure in goggles and a mask that carries his dead girlfriend around in a garbage bag, plays the cello, keyboards, guitars, ukulele, accordion, drums and whatever else he can get his hands on.Lily, a half-deer, half-human forest creature, that tap-dances and plays the musical saw, the trumpet, the theremin, the flute, and hits the drums like a six-foot sledgehammer.

Tarran the Tailor
An all around strangeling Tarran the Tailor has been in many scenes and many stages. How would you describe him? Psychedelic RnB Weirdo electro-folk Crawling biting whispers?
Anyways. he is all of these and much more to come.

Jack GartonBorn and raised in Vancouver, BC, now living on Galiano Island, Jack Garton has been making exciting music and theatre professionally for 15 years. Equally at home in the dense rain forest and eclectic West Coast arts scenes, he is sought after as both a collaborator and solo artist. Jack has forged a unique sound on the trumpet, playing as a sideman with many BC roots acts, including most recently Petunia and the Vipers, blending a traditional jazz style with a sense of forward-looking adventure.
“The sound is punchy and bright, with the instruments perfectlycoordinated.” -Tony Montague, Georgia Straight
“Jack Garton will save the accordion” – Trevor Nichols, Jasper Fitzhugh
“This is a really catchy, well-written singer/songwriter/accordion record. The musicianship is solid, it’s well recorded. Clever rhymes, an overall point of view about just the absurd difficulty of being alive. I like it a lot.” –Geoff Berner
