2019 Performers

Mainstage

Each night at Jam in Jubilee, three music acts take the main stage and get the park grooving, relaxing, dancing, or head banging, depending on how much sunlight is left.
Jam in Jubilee’s curators carefully book family friend acts, popular youth-leaning bands, and more experimental performers (for later on in the evening). The musical selections lean towards culturally diverse and forward-looking local talent. But really, there’s something for everybody.

The Crescent Sky
The Crescent Sky is a four person band that formed in 2018, consisting of Regan and Anna Luth, and Jason and Anna Ratzlaff. They are individually strong songwriters, who together unify a passion for storytelling with a love of music and creative expression.

Ezra Kwizera
Ezra Kwizera is an international artist, music producer and community leader. Ezra’s music style is richly multi‐cultural – a zesty yet soulful mix of Reggae, Soca, East African Bongo, and Pop. With linguistic agility, Ezra fluidly sings and raps in English, Kinyarwanda, Luganda, Zulu and Swahili. Growing up as a refugee in Uganda before moving back to his home country Rwanda after the 1994 genocide, Ezra has a powerful motivation to support Rwandans through his music to rebuild their country. His music conveys the spark of an overcomer and the passion of a community leader with a vision to inspire change in his generation.

Wooden Horsemen
“Wooden Horsemen deliver an infectious charge of electrified grooves, commanding a mix of gritty blues vocals and soulful, driving rhythms. Influenced by the discovery of Alan Lomax’s ‘American Patchwork’ series, tracks such as ‘I’ve Been Changed’ and ‘You Better Mind’ aim to harness the raw spirit of gospel all while maintaining the band’s signature modern rock n’ roll sound. Swampy, sweaty and downright dirty blues lay the foundation for ethereal harmonies and a blazing horn section, resulting in a gritty, powerful and ultimately unforgettable live experience.

Black Belt Eagle Scout
Katherine Paul is Black Belt Eagle Scout. Released in September of 2018, Mother of My Children was the debut album from Black Belt Eagle Scout, the recording project of Katherine Paul. Heralded as a favorite new musician of 2018 by the likes of NPR Music, Stereogum, and Paste, the album was also named as a “Best Rock Album of 2018” by Pitchfork, and garnered further end-of-year praise from FADER, Under The Radar and more.

Arriving just a year after that debut record, At the Party With My Brown Friends is a brand new full-length recording from Black Belt Eagle Scout. Where that first record was a snapshot of loss and landscape and of KP’s standing as a radical indigenous queer feminist, this new chapter finds its power in love, desire and friendship.

Blessed
Formed in the early winter months of 2015 in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley, Blessed were born from a shared creative objective. From the start, its original four members found themselves naturally amalgamating elements of Post-Hardcore, Minimalism, New Wave, Krautrock, and Punk. To date, Blessed has released one single with Toronto’s Buzz Records (Weaves, Dilly Dally, Greys), and two critically lauded EPs. The Fader wrote of the EP II: “Dominated by the high-fructose riffing pioneered by Deerhoof, giving way to a darker, propulsive jam that’s just as chaotic, yet well-controlled.”

Becky Ninkovic
Becky Ninkovic’s band You Say Party toured the world and long-listed for the Polaris Prize before the tragic loss of their drummer, Devon Clifford.

From this devastating moment, Becky found herself in the deep end of a mental health crisis. Wordless melodies and beats gestated through these years, though they were never intended for public release. Finally, Becky began to develop a sense of resiliency, hope for her artistic process—and for life itself-through therapeutic work, motherhood and the process of recording the Woe LP.

Now Becky is leading a community spirited initiative, including the formation of a multimedia-enhanced choir to perform Woe. A robust body of voices elevates these songs up, out, and away, while shadows turn to hypnotic repetitions of colours, and compelling visuals project a slow and intricate creative healing process through sound, movement, and textile art.”
