A Canadian heavy metal songsmith, the multi-platinum SEBASTIAN BACH found fame fronting metal sensation Skid Row (1987-1996). As the voice of the band, he was instrumental in selling 20 million albums during his tenure. Bach’s signature vocals are heard as he performs the Skid Row hit list, which includes “Youth Gone Wild”, “18 and Life”, “I Remember You”, “Slave to the Grind” and “Monkey Business”.

They say a rolling stone gathers no moss and Sebastian has kept his shine and polish with numerous television roles, acting on Broadway and launching a successful solo career. Among the highlights are his performance, along with Guns N’ Roses and Metallica, as part of the improv band The Gak at a party held by RIP Magazine; the release his debut solo album Bring ‘Em Bach Alive!, composed of Skid Row songs of Bach’s era and five new original solo tracks; the Broadway years in the title role of Jekyll & Hyde and Riff Raff in The Rocky Horror Show; his appearance at New York Steel, a benefit concert held in response to 9/11; hosting VH1′s Forever Wild; joining the national touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar in the title role and his recurring role on five seasons of the WB television show Gilmore Girls as “Gil”, the lead guitarist in Lane Kim’s band, Hep Alien.

Sebastian Bach has upped the ante in recent years as the singer on the Frameshift album An Absence of Empathy; with numerous appearances with Guns N’ Roses in New York, Europe, California and Quebec City; a successful solo tour of Australia as well as the release of his albums Angel Down and Kicking & Screaming which was met with universal acclaim.
Don’t miss what Outburn calls a “balls out gang of mountainous hooks, titanic grooves and straight down the middle hard rock” performance!

THE DISTRIBUTORS’ roots were set at The Blues Underground in Nanaimo during the 2009 Sidewalk All-Stars program. Ultimately, Brett, Kaylie and Austin meshed into a blues/rock trio with a tight vintage sound, drawing from southern blues and classic rock. It is all about the music, they are in it for life and it is good! The dedication to their craft is unmistakable on the tracks “Good Time”, “I’m Goin’ Back” “Gimme Some” and “It’s Your Life” from the band’s debut album In Color.

One of the hardest working bands in B.C., THE DISTRIBUTORS were voted into the Top Ten in Youthink Magazine’s BC Best Teen Band contest (2013). The band was invited to play at Duncan’s Moonfest (2012), which required at least 70% original songs. Ever up to the challenge, they channeled their creativity writing 6 original songs in less than two weeks. With an overwhelming desire to make music that makes us dance, they are guaranteed to wow the audience with their toe tapping tunes and groovy beats. You won’t be disappointed.
