Crystal Shawanda Live @FernandosPub
Juno Award Winning Crystal Shawada has paid her dues, playing at Tootsies Orchid Lounge six days a week, three shifts a day, and managed to build up a buzz and land a production deal with Scott Hendricks. She was later signed to a record deal with RCA Records by Joe Galante, who had heard Crystal cover B.B. King and Janis Joplin. This venture produced a top 20 song on country radio and the highest selling album by a Native American in BDS history
After this, she found herself feeling like a fish out of water. She says, “I so wanted to be what everyone wanted me to be, I lost myself along the way.” So Crystal took some time off and, one day while watching the news and feeling overwhelmed by the headlines, she walked into her music room, picked up her guitar and wrote “The Whole World’s Got the Blues.” This was the start of her first blues album.
”The songs just fell out of me and throughout the recording it was like setting my voice free,” she says. “I can’t help but feel like I’m home, no longer holding back.”
Crystal’s album is a modern take on the blues, but is deeply rooted with heart-wrenching laments and catchy rump-shakers. It’s where the north meets the south and captures the resilience of the human spirit — much like the way Crystal does.
Crystal Shawanda is reminiscent of a time gone by. She will make you feel every word with a powerful voice that never fails, pure and gritty at the same time. Do yourself a favour and see her live Fernando's Pub... See MoreSee Less
Emily Rockarts / Reason & Romance live at Fernando's Pub
With her catchy and endearing story based pop songs, Emily Rockarts is starting to catch on in Toronto’s crowded music scene. Her songs explore the wide eyed optimism of moving to new cities, the expansive depth of oceans, and the stratospheres of space.
"Mapmaker", Emily Rockarts' debut release from April of 2016, is a collection of songs that is as sweet and light hearted as it is thoughtful and full of longing. Emily's music is artfully expressed through her captivating quartet. The music is honest, quirky, ever-changing and guarantees that no two shows will be the same.
After a successful east coast tour in promotion of "Mapmaker", Emily is writing a new batch of songs, with the focus on a national tour, and the release of a full length album in 2018.

The Sylvia Platters and Western Jaguar Live @FernandosPub
The Sylvia Platters
The Sylvia Platters are a four-piece power pop and shoegaze outfit hailing from all corners of BC's Fraser Valley. Their home-made, late-2015 debut record, Make Glad the Day, has drawn comparisons to Weezer, Belle and Sebastian, and The Smiths. Graypoint Owl writes that Make Glad the Day, "stays refreshing and fun across the breadth of its swiftly accelerating track list, digging catchy hooks deep into the listener while displaying a distinctly geeky, literarily inclined wit." The album subsequently reached #32 on the earshot! college and community radio charts.
While the Platters are a relatively new project, its members have a long history together and playing music in other bands. That experience translates into a compelling live act that Glenn Ess of The Cascade calls, "vibrant and endlessly entertaining."
The Platters' second release, a five-song EP called MELT was released on June 23.
Western Jaguar is a modern indie rock group from Mission, British Columbia. Western Jaguar’s sound combines elements of indie rock, dream pop and post-rock to create a stirring union of reverb drenched guitars, pulsating bass and bruising percussion. These elements are the cornerstones of Western Jaguar’s unmatched sound and provide the foundation for the group’s haunting and memorable melodies.
Western Jaguar is comprised of Jeffrey Trainor (vocals/guitar), Kier-Christer Junos (vocals/guitar), Ryan Domingo (bass) and AJ Buckley (drums).... See MoreSee Less
The Civil Dead With Volunteers
The Civil Dead are joined by VOLUNTEERS and others in support of their new release, More Joy In Heaven.
THE CIVIL DEAD are a like Marty Robbins on a meth binge, stitching together americana, post-punk and art rock.
VOLUNTEERS warp shambling psychadelic country around wunderkind Liam McIvor's haunting, folksy guitar work and lyrics.
SPEAK EASY play slacker rock for young stoned folks to make babies to.
LAKEMAN give nods to Goblin, Pelican, and some other pretty heady dudes with their sludgy, prog-leaning post-metal.
DWIGHT plays sarcastic americana. Here's one:

Tallest to Shortest w/guests @FernandosPub
Tallest To Shortest surfs genres and bends rules with unpredictable, reckless precision. This power trio turns heads at every show. Made up of members of The Uncas, Red Ram, Switchmen and The Fails – Sean Brewer, Mark Feduk and Corey Motz never fail to sway the crowd.
Tallest To Shortest is about getting back to basics and simply writing catchy, crafty tunes and then belting them out in a fresh way that almost anyone can get behind. On one tune you may hear grungy rock mixed with hip-hop beats and then they will blindside you with a pop-punk ditty that breaks into a metal bridge. This band doesn’t have an identity crisis though – there is a consistent theme of mayhem and catchiness that runs throughout their repertoire.... See MoreSee Less
Johnny 2 Fingers / Moon Tan live at Fernando's - Kelowna
live at Fernando's Pub
Moon Tan [Winnipeg, MB] - 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."
Johnny 2 Fingers & the Deformities [Moose Jaw, SK] 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.... See MoreSee Less
