ArtSpace, 7:30 pm

The Racket


Raised in the rich festival scene of Northern B.C., the Racket know how to get a dance floor (or dirt field) grooving, as well as satisfying more intimate settings with an acoustic set. You can expect tight n’ funky grooves, slow n’ steady blues, and the driving force of stomp-folk with a theme of social change.

Hachey the MouthPEACE


Hachey the mouthPEACE, based out of Hamilton, ON, has a mind-blowing beatbox set. Technically, Jason Hachey is a beatboxer. However, what he does is so much more: he records, loops, and creates beats as he beatboxes – in essence creating original songs each time he performs.

He incorporates a blend of rock, country and alternative styles in his music. He has been backing up other performers for the past 10 years or so and although often performing now as a solo, he has pulled together a couple of friends for this special Coldsnap performance!
