Eliza first garnered commercial attention in 2011 with her Snak the Ripper featured track, ‘Right Now’, which achieved heavy rotation on The Beat, 94.5fm in Vancouver and later won her the “Best in BC” Contest at Virgin Radio.
Eliza’s 2012 single, ‘Replace Me’ (Reliant/Warner Music), charted successfully on Canada’s Hot A/C charts and generated music industry accolades including a Bell Media Emerging artist award.
Eliza has toured extensively in North America and Asia and has been called on to share the stage with Juno winners K’Naan, Swollen Members and Jully Black, along with hip hop legends, B-Real of Cypress Hill, Jadakiss, Juicy J and Wu-Tang’s Raekwon.

The Femme Fatales, from Nanaimo, British Columbia, are a high-energy, versatile ,ALL female dance band that is taking hold of Vancouver Island’s music scene. With strong vocals, thick harmonies, tight instrumentation, and captivating stage presence, this four piece band is armed with some of the most talented women of the west coast music scene. From creative medleys and mash ups, to funky bass lines and stacked vocal harmonies, there is something for everyone. With talented musicians, and a all female presence, The Femme Fatales will put on a show that you’re sure to remember.
The Femmes have been busy working on their debut album with Rick Salt and Rob The Viking and have shared stages with Wide Mouth Mason, Collective Soul, Aaron Lee and Darby Mills to name a few.

New to the community, "Girl Named Jake" will open the show and leave you breathless with her powerful voice and deliverence.

Chris Antonik live at The Queen's

Chris Antonik live at The Queen's

Toronto-based blues artist Chris Antonik was nominated for Best New Artist in 2011 at Canada's Maple Blues Awards after the release of his debut album, and has since become one of Canada’s fastest-rising blues artists. Blending innovative, thoughtful songwriting with stunning blues guitar work, some music critics have drawn comparisons to Eric Clapton.

In its 2010 year-end review, Chris was named the "future of the blues" by Canada's Blues Underground Network. In 2013, Chris’ sophomore album Better for You was hailed by critics as “a masterpiece,” “the best Canadian blues-rock album of 2013,” and “the sound of someone taking the blues to a new place.” Chris' album was nominated for Best Blues Album by the German Record Critics Association. Oregon’s Cascade Blues Association called it “one of the finest releases from the Great White North in many a year.”

Chris has performed at major blues festivals across Canada, and has toured the US extensively. Chris released his third studio record "Monarch" in April 2017, which was nominated fro Recording of the Year (and Chris as producer) at the 2018 Maple Blues Awards. Chris was also nominated for Songwriter of the Year.

In 2018, Chris undertook his second successful UK tour, which included a sold-out appearance at the O2 Academy in Sheffield. Chris also performed on stage with Buddy Guy at his club in Chicago.

Tix - $15 at the door. This show is sponsored by the Nanaimo Blues Society, come down and get your 50/50 tickets and help support live blues on Vancouver Island.

The BATHTUB WEEKEND LAUNCH PARTY is a 1-day concert festival taking place at Maffeo Sutton Park on Friday July 19th. STARTS at 5PM. Ends at 10PM

Featuring BIG SUGAR


The ionic Big Sugar boldly goes forth with their brand new album “ETERNITY NOW”. Johnson, at the controls of his Texas studio “THE SOUND SHACK”, applies his signature 1970s thump and otherworldly psycho-acoustic dub effects that have made him a much sought out remixer/producer. For the first time, there are no co-writers outside the band and new song lyrics ring out tried and true. Uplifting and full of resolve whilst addressing the realities of a hard life lived and survived; whether it’s the tale of redemption in “The Better It Gets” or the vow to his real life superhero in “Wonder Woman”.

Gordie Johnson storms the stage with his signature double neck Gibson guitar, howling into the mic “Time to get back to the land of the living”. He may sing like a man possessed but he is a man sharing what it’s like to be blessed. After winning a long battle against his personal demons and riding a wave of renewed energy, Johnson and Big Sugar were slammed by band member defections, an aborted album, mental illness, addiction and even a life threatening illness. However…

There is still magic flying between Johnson and his diverse troupe known worldwide as Big Sugar but this is a new kind of magic; a shiny alchemy that compliments their hard won transformation. He is joined by his long time friend and bassist Big Ben Richardson, drummer/multi-instrumentalist Chris Colepaugh and the languid Alex Johnson (Gordie’s sexy significant other) adding subliminal textures of percussive sound, along with new member Rey Arteaga, master of Afro Cuban rhythms on congas. Whether these 5 are performing brand new songs or their certified hits, the roots rock reggae groove is deep and Gordie Johnson’s guitar always tells a story.

Johnson’s vocals bear the scars of time yet emanate a vital musicality that recalls the young band that burst into the spotlight with the raging “Ride Like Hell” or their first radio hit “Diggin A Hole”. He explains that his Big Sugar band now sings like a family, enabling them to create a sixth element with their powerful harmonies.

The leaner, cleaner, present day Big Sugar still rock the house to keep fans dancing and playing air guitar but whatever you thought this band was, let it go. The title of their first track “Anything is Possible” states it best.

Yes, anything is possible.



Are you a musician/band that wants to be a part of this awesome event? Send The Queen's a message on FB Messenger or email brennan@thequeens.ca.
We will be hosting a contest event at the Queens to OPEN FOR BIG SUGAR very soon.

============================================
BIO: The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra

The Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra are a collection of musicians, linked by common sonic journeys and familial ties. It doesn’t matter much how they got here, but rather that they are traveling with each other. Now they are here in the room with you, the way music in the folk tradition always is, to bring people together; to share real flesh, blood and feeling.

WE MAKE REALLY PARTY is a 5 song EP that returns to the old world sounds the band became known for in its early years. With both original and reimagined roots and folk songs in English, Spanish and Italian WE MAKE REALLY PARTY captures the band playing live off the floor in a three day session after a summer tour. It is a record that is refined in both playing and production while honouring the band's past musically.

TMO have spent years weaving their stories with guitars and violins, with accordions and bass, with melodies and music makers gleaned from their wanderings. Here are the troubadours to remind you that this music (no matter what kind of device it ends up on) could not exist without warm bodies in search of harmony.

BIO: The Clanns

Bringing more than a pint of fervor and charm, The Clanns are a lively Celtic Rock band from Vancouver Island, BC.

Scotty Guy - Guitar & Vocals- Since the 1990's Scottie's been a travelling musician throughout western Canada. In 1996 he boarded a freight train for the coast, and later made his way to Errington BC. On a fine winter's day, in a Qualicum Beach cafe, he met up with the members who would eventually become the Clanns

Al Black Davidson – Drums, Mandolin & Vocals - A Canadian lad with Scottish heritage, spent many years on the road touring with various Roots bands and drinking beer. He was also the original drummer of Canada's Rockabilly Madmen "the Nervous Fellas"

Len Imbery – Accordion -Hailing from the moors of Saskatchewan with a checkered heritage and past, is a qualified Irish-come-lately as he is a purveyor of beer and fine spirits, done while simultaneously playing an accordion.

Angela – Fiddle & Vocals – has chosen to remain silent about her past. Some of the other band members think she may be on the run and part of a witness protection program.

Terry Parker - Bass Guitar - The newest Clann member hailing from the East Coast. He brings to the band his solid playing, strong east coast music influence and an occasional beer to rehearsal.

****************************************************
Jon and Roy's 8th album Here (out 3/1/19) epitomizes their journey to date; an assured collection of 9 brand new songs that touch upon themes of love, presence, hardship and joy. Building upon the creative energy of 2017’s The Road Ahead is Golden, Here is an aural balm to soothe in these uncertain times; a gentle reminder to be present, to revel in the simple joy of living. “To me, this album is something special,” says Middleton, “It contains all the elements that I hold dear about this band, and it feels free to me; as true an expression of our music as we’ve ever created”

Recorded in the quiet forests of Vancouver Island over the summer and fall of 2018, Here is quintessential Jon and Roy. “Half of the songs were written this past year,” Middleton continues, “but the other half are 2, or even three years old, and have needed time to simmer to get where they needed to be.” In the title track, Middleton’s beguiling vocals weave a languid tale atop of Roy Vizer’s laid back percussion. The tracks 'Headstrong' and 'Seven Colts' are buoyant, filled with an exuberance that is elevated by a breezy horn section and strong vocals. In the raw and honest 'Where Has My Love Gone', Middleton laments lost love; his impassioned vocals rising over Vizer’s stripped back drums. A compelling lyricist, Middleton is renowned for not sharing the meaning behind the songs; instead encouraging the listener to draw upon their own personal experiences to find connection, “I love that our songs have an ambiguity to them,” he says.

Bathtub Weekend is closing in and Big Sugar still needs an opener. So, we're calling out to Nanaimo's best bands to come play a short set on our stage for a chance to open for this legendary event!
Winner will be chosen by a panel of judges at The Queen's, and be given a chance to shine in front of thousands of Nanaimoites!

Are you a musician/band that wants to be a part of this awesome event? Send The Queen's a message on FB Messenger or email brennan@thequeens.ca.

Think you got what it takes? Drop us a line.
