Calgary vets Jay Ross and Teekay have linked up for a new collaborative 6-song EP entitled "STR8 6 SHOOTA", now available via the Infinite Elements label. Half of the songs were produced by each artist, and DJ Cosm provides cuts on three tracks. Now available on all streaming/download platforms, including Spotify!
Welcome 2019 with friends and beautiful strangers at your home away from home, the Ship & Anchor.
Good tunes and good times will help us start 2019 off on the right note with a hip-hop funk dance shindig.
BLADES OF STEEL are back from the dead, re-uniting for one night only. Two MCs and a crack four-piece band will make a funky hip-hop noise worthy of the year’s biggest party. People are still talking about their 2013 NYE show on this same stage, and more celebratory vibes await this time around.
DRAGON FLI EMPIRE are Calgary’s hip-hop staple, delivering crowd-pleasing old school vibes to get you out of your chair, with your hands in the air. They’ve been around the world, but they want to bring in 2019 with you!
SABO FORTE, one of the city’s foremost party rocking DJs, will take care of the before, between and after, feeding you good time tracks to help you get on down from early till late.
Spend NYE with these good-time acts, at the bar so famous it only needs one word: The Ship.
