Johnny 2 Fingers & the Deformities
with Moon Tan
The Confusionaires
and Alleviate

Right now, there’s a guitarist from Moose Jaw who might be the saviour of Saskatchewan guitar rock and he’s missing a bunch of his fingers…. Johnny 2 Fingers & the Deformities take their cues from southern-fried boogie rock and infuse it with a boozy belt of punk rock for good measure.” — Ominocity

Energetic. Funky. Progressive. Vintage. Rock n’ Roll. These are a just few elements that have been forged together to create a unique yet very familiar sound—one that is cleverly harnessed by Winnipeg's power trio known as Moon Tan. Born of three separate imaginations, their diverse influences seamlessly blend to form a new genre, or «anti-genre» of music and entertainment, which they refer to as «intergalactic space freak rock n' roll.»

The Confusionaires are a Retro / Rockabilly / Spaghetti Western inspired band that focuses their efforts on original music; but with a mix of era-appropriate, yet surprising cover song selections. The performance of instrumental and lyric-based rock & roll is primitive in it’s composition, but has a modern high-energy delivery from 3 excellent musicians. The Confusionaires are sure to entertain audiences of all ages!

It’s getting pretty common to hear “Rock n’ Roll is dead", but in Northern Alberta there lies a band called Alleviate who proves that saying is nothing but untrue. After their shows it’s not unusual to hear comments about Alleviate helping rebirth Rock and Roll. Their fans appreciate their memorable sound and powerful lyrics
