Description

So it’s a long summer weekend, the weather is beautiful, you have an extra day before having to go back to “the grind”, and are totally psyched to go out and live it up, then oh wait….nothing is going on. No shows, no concerts, even the regular bar entertainment has been canceled due to the fact that “everybody is gone to their cabins”. But what if you don’t have that luxury or are simply not a fan of “roughing it”? Well that’s where Nervous Rebels Entertainment comes in!

Sunday August 5th, we are having our own in-city “Summer Escape” happening right in the heart of downtown Hamilton ON at This Ain't Hollywood, where for 4 hours you can come in and sip on a cold drink while being tantalized with everything the lighter-side of rock has to offer.

Kicking off the night is Hamilton-Native acoustic pop-rock artist Dan Scruton. Past winner of “Stoney Creek Idol”, Dan has been entertaining audiences for years; locally, nationally and internationally. His vocals have been compared to the likes of Jason Mraz, Rob Thomas, Chris DeBurgh and Gavin Degraw, among others. Dan is a gifted singer, songwriter and musician with a professionally produced album (“Best Case Scenario”) and more contemporary originals to be recorded.

Following Dan up is The Jack Daniel’s Band (Jackdanielhimself) from Toronto ON. This blues-rock (or “trashgrass”) group has been taking on the GTA like wildfire this year. With banjo-slingin’ Jack Daniel Russel as the front man of an otherwise ALL female band, busting out a very “southern-roots” feeling sound that will just make your body want to swoon along with the beats.

Entering the stage next will be Kristen Karma. Kristen has been pumpin’ up parties in her hometown Vancouver BC for years, and with a Gold Award in one hand (personally given to her by HRH Prince Edward in 2009) and a black corset in the other, is taking control of her own destiny by breaking out in Southern Ontario!

Among many career achievements, Kristen performed at Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Ball After-Party and opened for Tour DJ/Lady Gaga BFF Lady Starlight in 2013, as well as the Lady Gaga – Joanne World Tour VIP After-Party at Vancouver’s Rogers Arena, and opened for Grammy Award Winner Akon in Guelph, Ontario on his Canadian Promo Tour in 2017! With rave reviews from her performance, she then went on to work with lil’Jon on her single Sirens.

Kristen has studied voice with Judith Rabinovitch - who has worked with the likes of Avril Lavigne and Sarah McLachlan - and wields a certificate in Audio Engineering from Hot Sole Music.

Last but not least, Niagara Falls band Eklectik will be closing the night off with their own spin on many loved party songs that you won't be able to resist that dance floor for! Formed in 2013, Eklectik has taken the province by surprise. Their album, "We Are E", has topped the Reverbnation charts, which in turn had landed them a spot in the Guiness Book of World Records for the longest concert by multiple artists in 2017, which stemmed an 18-day period in Toronto, with many other top bands.

This Niagara Music Award nominee for Best New Band, can be heard regularly on both FM and Internet stations worldwide: Hamilton Y108, Kingston Q108 , Banks Radio (Australia), rbxradio.com (UK) and maxinkradio.com (USA) to name a few.

And if that musical line up is not enough, to stimulate your other senses, local Hamilton artist Angela Godden from Angelart will be will be performing "live art" while you rock the dance floor; awing you with her amazing use of colour and creativity.

Attracting all types of acts, their stage hosts nightly shows featuring local and international talent alike, as a veteran live music venue, This Ain't Hollywood embodies what it means to rock in the Hammer! Located at Murray Street and James St N, the atmosphere oozes with a signature brand of punk-rock style, coupled with reasonable drink prices and top notch service, it has become a staple for live music in Hamilton. This Ain’t Hollywood has received many “Hamilton Industry Awards” over the years, including “Talent Buyer of the Year” and “Live Sound Engineer” for 3 years, along with “Live Club of the Year” 2009-2012.

Tickets are currently on sale online through EventBrite, as well at Cheapies Records & Tapes (located at 67 King St East) and Crash Landing Music Store (located at 1189 Cannon St E), along with your beloved Rebels Vincent and Misty-Lynn.
