~ If Mike Ruby is being honest, he fell in love with music because of John Mayer. "His lyrics pulled me in, and his musicianship kept me there forever," he says. It's something that took him from a successful jazz career through a pivot to singer-songwriter. After signing to a subsidiary of Universal Music at 19, Ruby moved to New York from his hometown Toronto and was soon recruited to play saxophone in Brooklyn-based synth-pop band St. Lucia. After opening slots with Ellie Goulding and playing festivals like Lollapalooza, Ruby got a taste of the pop world and wanted more. In just 4 years he learned to sing, write and play guitar professionally. Now, the multi-talented artist is ready to stand on his own, in his own way, touting a fresh take of the genre with sax-influenced pop. ~

~ Originally from small town New Brunswick, 24 year old Jaryd Stanley is ready for the big time. An acoustic guitar playing singer-songwriter at heart, the Toronto newcomer mixes elements of a many styles into his own songs. Inspired by the likes of Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, Carole King, Joel Plaskett, and many more, Jaryd's versatility is paramount in creating his sound. His debut EP/demo 'sixteen ten' (available across all platforms) was released in mid 2017 and led Jaryd to a successful debut year. Most recently, you may have seen him on CTV’s ‘The Launch’, as the “Fan Favourite” of CBC’s 2017 Searchlight competition as well as the 2017 Grand Prize Winner of Canada's Walk Of Fame Emerging Artists Program. A small town maritimer with big city dreams and boundless potential, Jaryd Stanley could be Canada’s next big International thing. New music coming Spring 2018!

Trapdoor Fest Fundraiser

This event is a fundraiser for a community based music festival that is being organized by Reid Millar called Trapdoor Fest. The weekend of shows is happening from May 25th-27th, featuring garage, psych, punk, hip hop and indie bands from Toronto and Montreal. A festival like this of course cannot exist without funding, and so we're going to have a fun fundraiser to help raise some money to help make Trapdoor Fest possible. All money raised from this event will go towards Trapdoor Fest. 

We have a great night planned for you featuring DJ sets by musicians playing the festival, and others close to the event, who will be spinning some of their favourite music. Come on out to the Piston on February 8th for a fun night of dancing, drinks and excitement! Come early, stay late!

Members of Goodbye Honolulu

Members of Luna Li

Members of BBQ Pope
