21 GUN SALUTE -
21 GUN SALUTE is undoubtedly one of the premiere AC/DC reviews ever assembled. The band plays true homage to AC/DC’s high voltage rock n roll. From the Bon Scott raw rock n roll years to the bands evolution throughout their thirty year tenure with Brian Johnson.
Every detail has been painstakingly reproduced, from the smoking cannons and Hell’s Bell stage props to Angus Young’s school boy outfit and signature live antics and lead singer’s dead on vocal rendition of both Bon Scott to Brian Johnson.

BIG SHINY MAPLE (Afterparty)
The Big Shiny Maple band really started without knowing, when singer and guitar player, Chase Cote, and drummer, Louis St-Amand, jammed back in 2018, with some guys and friends for fun. The two really "clicked" Musically. Simon Clowes was the one responsible for having them two meet in late 2017. In early 2018, Chase and Louis stayed in touch and went on to look for a bass player to complete their 3-piece band they were trying to achieve at that time.
Denis Michaud, a well-known solid bass player from Grand Falls, was added to complete the 3-piece rock cover band named Big Shiny Maple. Covering grunge and alternative rock bands from the 90’s and 2000’s. After experiencing with all the rock and grunge rock / Alternative styles sound these 3 loved. These 3 found out soon enough that many bands and songs were possible to be covered and "fitted" the group well with Chase’s powerhouse voice and dynamics, that made most of this music enormous range possible.
Many cover songs they played then were actually rock songs from the Much Music Albums (Big Shiny Tunes). The name Big Shiny Maple was born towards these albums names, song choices and adding Maple to show their Canadian roots and proudness in the mix… The 3 piece later added Shaun Rioux in mid-June 2018, a gear head well composed guitar player into the mix for a lead guitar position, while Chase played rhythm and kept at vocals. A couple weeks after, the 4 piece band played at a “Battle of The Bands” and took home second place. Which was actually their first ever exposure as a band of 4. As the band grew into maturity of knowing each other musically better and better, all 4 members decided to add another rhythm guitar player. Someone else without compromising the band's natural connection and dynamic style.
Simon Clowes being the initial and only choice requested by the 4 members was the only right fit. For his music abilities, experience and music knowledge - it was an easy choice in order to proceed the bands progression and writing abilities. Since 2020, BSM is a 5 piece band and currently has completed a independent 4 songs EP / Demo (April 2022) and still as of today writing originals to complete a full length independent album in the very near future.

PRESENTED BY LA SOCIÉTÉ CULTURELLE RÉGIONALE LES CHUTES
Menoncle Jason is a character invented by singer-songwriter Jason Leblanc. Inspired by the people who knew him in Memramcook, where Jason is from, Menoncle is a sort of parody of a person living in the country who has trouble adapting to modernity. The music, however, is not a parody, but rather of high quality and recognized everywhere. For Menoncle, everything was better before, constantly nostalgic he would like to return to live in the past.
This universal character denounces the consumer society, the over-indebtedness, the malaise of humans in everyday life. With his baritone voice, his style always has a humorous and committed touch. His first two albums were very successful with the critics.
An essential group on the Acadian music scene for 45 years, 1755 sings about the world we know with the joie de vivre and the language of the people of this region. Kenneth Saulnier, Pierre Robichaud, Roland Gauvin, Donald Boudreau and Ronald Dupuis bring the crowd to their feet with energy and passion on country, rock and folk tunes. The gang has succeeded in reaching more than one generation by promoting the pride of singing and celebrating in their own language! Their three main albums are: "1755", "Vivre à la Baie" and "Synergie".
