Vancouver, BC – On May 31st, 2017 Patchchord News was invited to the CD Release Party for local Vancouver band, Uncle Sid.  They have been working in the studio finishing off their long awaited self-titled album, “Uncle Sid”, set for release to the general public June 15th.  The band is made up of Emerald Green on Vocals, Frankie Scars on guitar, Kirk October on bass and Dale Salive on drums.  This melodic hard rock band has been shaking the foundations of venues across Canada since 2014.  This hard-working band has been touring and building up a dedicated fan base aptly known as Sidizens.

Kicking off the evening were The I in Team, a local Vancouver rock band.  They currently have an EP released, “Fallen, Not Forgotten” out now.

Next up were The UnderHeads, another Vancouver band.  They came together after going to school for audio engineering and music production.  The band comprised of Matt Harker on guitar and vocals, Scott Rogers on bass and Ramon Crespo on drums, brought a unique mix of rock to the evenings aural foundation.

Uncle Sid took the stage next and drove their hard rock home to a core group of fans.  Emerald’s powerhouse vocals flooded the theatre and mixed perfectly with the ripping guitar riffs and leads from Frankie Scars.  Behind one of the coolest double kick drum kits (yes those are the drummers eyes) sat Dale Salive locking in the rhythms with bassist Kirk October.  Sonically and visually this band delivers a great show.  The members constantly move giving the audience a great rock experience.

Finishing off the night was Canadian rock band, Redwoods, from North Vancouver.  Formed in 2012, this quartet is comprised of 3 vocalists, two guitar players, a drummer and a bassist.  Devon Webber is the front man who has a wonderful soulful voice, reminiscent of Southern rock singers of years gone by.  Aydn Graham is the lead guitarist which matches perfectly with Webber’s guitar playing.  Keeping the rhythm tight is bassist Chad Carlsen and drummer Adam Likness.  They played a great set and was an awesome way to round out the evening’s festivities.
