About the event
Known for his hooks, energetic live performances and fronting ‘Grease Coast Rock N’ Roll’ band, Andre Pettipas and The Giants.
“There is only one word that comes to mind when you see Andre onstage, showman. Musical talent aside, this young man has presence that is reminiscent of a young Brian Setzer, working the stage and the room with an irresistible charisma. ” -B Lynn Hartling/Canadian Beats
After winning 2017’s Q104 Homegrown Challenge which helped fund their industry demo, Andre Pettipas and The Giants showcased at numerous industry shindigs, including Canadian Music Week in Toronto and the 2018 Live at Heart festival in Sweden, and toured relentlessly.
Along the way, they’ve gained a reputation as an incredibly tight live act, and as a band that routinely crank out the kind of eminently hooky, sing a long, anthems that stick in your mind and just won’t let go – a reputation that not only got producer Brian Moncarz’s (Alice Cooper, Our Lady Peace) attention but drew a variety of talented and enthusiastic musical guests to the table on their ECMA Rock Album of The Year nominated sophomore effort, ‘No Fools, No Fun.'
His band is releasing a double live album this spring which was recorded at the legendary El Mocambo in Toronto during back-to-back nights last September. Most recently Andre has been working on a collection of songs and collaborations that will be compiled at the end of the year to make his first solo record titled, ‘Dreja Vu.’
“Andre knows pop and what people want to hear or can listen to - yet pushes those boundaries without breaking them to be too experimental” - Tony Trimper
