Orkestar Kriminal is comprised of 5 male and 5 female improv performers who interpret inspired renditions of slum-based "world music". They sing gutsy and adventurous criminal songs from a dangerous and forgotten era, like Mexican tequila-smuggling tunes, Russian prisoner laments, and the grooves of a Yiddish gangster. They can also be found performing in Pashto, Greek, Hebrew, or whatever other tongue might attract the multilingual stylings of front woman Giselle Claudia Webber. So long as the tune is catchy and a little shady, they'll give it their best shot. Orkestar Kriminal's debut album "Tummel" was released in 2015, attracting a plethora of media attention, and winning a GAMIQ for "Roots Album of the Year". After continuous touring and a multitude of festival performances, the biggest criminal punks in world music have just unleashed their 2nd full-length: Ryobra , with Producer Josh Dolgin, released August 24th, 2018 on Coax Records. In December, 2018 Ryobra hit the #1 spot on the Earshot "National International" college radio charts.

Electric Audrey 2 is a 6-piece comedic & musical platter of fine hams that came together in Edmonton, AB in 2015. Ingredients: Large serving of rockabilly, 1 cup of western, 2 tablespoons of surfer rock, a dash of punk, dash of blues and an assortment of alternative spices. Contains LOTS of artificial preservatives. Their amusing, bemusing music video "Chicken Lover" perfectly portrays the dazzling demeanor of the group, and has been showcased at several film festivals in North America. In a world of serious musical acts trying to keep it real, the Electric Audrey 2 stands by their doctrine of keepin' it stupid, and their live performances are guaranteed to keep you hootin' and a hollerin' for the night. Keep your eyes peeled and ears waxed for the energetic, eclectic, Electric Audrey 2!
