From the ever-burgeoning club scene of BC’s hidden gem, Victoria, comes Ryan “Juice” Walton. Juice has built a small empire being the go-to party starter of the island and his efforts have landed him gigs from Shambhala with Smalltown DJs to sharing the stage with acts like Bun B, Mat the Alien, The Funk Hunters, Skratch Bastid, & A Tribe Called Red.
Juice won’t be pigeonholed into any genres though. You can catch him rocking a pool party, playing funk, soul & disco late night, or at the club bangin’ rap or late night bass to the wee hours. His rep is growing just as fast as the dancefloors in front of him, definitely a Canadian DJ to keep your eyes on moving forward. He’s not the Jack of all trades, he’s the Juice of all trades.

Kid Ink cruises past all boundaries. The Los Angeles rapper, producer, and performer can seamlessly slip from an irresistible hook into an impeccable verse, effortlessly bobbing and weaving between the club and the streets. There’s absolutely nobody quite like the tattooed from head-to-toe impresario, and that’s the first thing you’ll notice when you take his full-length debut, My Own Lane [Tha Alumni Music Group/88 Classic/RCA Records], for a spin.
Grinding as a producer since the age of 16, he uncovered this creative highway by perfecting a personal style behind the board first. His production collaborations include everybody from Sean “Diddy” Combs, Sean Kingston, Nipsey Hu$$le, and more.

MAVIS STAPLES is living, breathing history. She is a Grammy-winning alchemist of American music, having continuously crossed genre lines like no musician since Ray Charles. From the Delta-inflected gospel sound she helped create as a member of The Staple Singers, to the freedom songs of the Civil Rights era, to pop radio stardom during the Stax era, to The Last Waltz, to serving as muse to both Bob Dylan and Prince at the peak of their careers, to 21st century collaborations with Van Morrison, Ry Cooder, Willie Nelson, Chuck D. and Jeff Tweedy, the one constant has been Mavis and her singular voice. Now in her seventh decade, the legendary Staples released her latest album “Livin on a
High Note” in early 2016, and was recently recognized as a Kennedy Center Honoree.
