"FSSH students fostering change within their communities"

"My friends in the band Bohemian Grove, and the singer of the band Esteem, Krystle (Michele), decided to make an original song that addressed many of the stigmas revolving around mental health," he said. "Instead of posting multiple pages of information on mental health online, we decided that the best way to get students and peers to talk about mental health was to approach it in a new and innovative form." - UOIT News Archives

"Students crashing demo derby"

Song production and presentation is an important thing for a musician or band to consider as they try to make a name for themselves.
The Demo Derby at the Reel Music Festival is a contest for bands and musicians to get advice and pointers from industry professionals, as well as win some prizes in the process.
The judges were Dan Hand, a talent scout for Universal Music and Underground Operations, Cody Partridge, a coordinator at Supersonic Creative and Consulting, and Abel Renton, the CEO of Get Bent records.
Jeff Dalziel, a songwriter and producer as well as the owner of Diesel Music, was a last minute fill-in for rapper and producer Peter Jackson who had to cancel.
The contest was short, only five entries, but the judges had a lot to offer.
“I’m looking for indies,” said Partridge, “so they can get placements and get work.”
This sentiment was shared by Dalziel who said, “Eighty-five per cent of students got placements last year. This festival is good for the students running it, it’s good for the school, and it’s good for networking.”
Partridge says the event is a good stepping-stone.
“It’s always good to have home grown exposure,” he said.
This was a contest, though, so there could only be one winner, and according to Renton the winning song would “need an instant impact.”
Hand said that the song with the best production quality would be the winner.
The entries ranged from heavy industrial guitars to instrumental metal and rap rock.
After hearing all five entries the judges took a break to tally their scores and just before making their judgement, a last minute entry from a pop-punk band called Cheap Date entered. But it couldn’t steal victory.
The winners were Bohemian Grove, whose two representatives at the event are Durham College grads currently attending UOIT. Their mash up Sheepdogs style rock and Beastie Boys style rapping made them stand out among the crowd.
Bohemian Grove played Songs Revealed the night before but with Demo Derby they got to win their own contest. They were ecstatic but kept their eyes on the long term.
“We’re going to keep playing events with Music Business Management,” said Eric Nasu, one of the band’s rappers, “and we’re going to keep all the judges’ criticism in mind with the future.”
One of the prizes was a professional mixing of one of their songs and they had a particular one in mind.
“The song has a Black Keys sounding riff,” Nasu said, “so we’ve tentatively called it Black Keys Song.”
But Eric Barber, the group’s bassist, said that may have to change.
“We’re going to rename it before we release it,” he laughed.
They also won a $50 gift card to the Keg in their prize package but in a band of five it won’t go far.
“We’re going on a date,” Nasu laughed. “We’re the two guys who showed up after all!” - Durham Chronicle


Still working on that hot first release.



Winners of ReverbNation’s Student Pocket Guide TV (SPGtv) competition, Bohemian Grove, is a five-member alternative rock group who have a unique sound. Since the bands origin in 2012, they have taken their major influences (Beastie Boys, Nas, The Black Keys, Rage Against the Machine, Sublime) and merged two genres to form Alternative Rock influenced melodies and Hip Hop elemented lyrics. The Whitby, ON natives have been able to acquire a fan base over the past few years and have even been featured on HipHopCanada’s website after being noticed by radio personality J’ness on Flow 93.5. Their laid back and modern look peaks the interest of a twenty-something college aged audience, which is their main target market. They have opened for, and can be seen performing with, Tech N9ne, Black Sheep, JJ and the Pillars, Kitty Pride, and Hello Beautiful.

Their party-rock on-stage presence is a 180 twist from their behind the scenes personalities, being the guys next door by day and energetic performers by night. Having played at Free the Children’s We Day and produced a mental health movement song, they truly care about moving situations in the world around them.

They perform at various venues including The Mod Club (Toronto), The Rockpile (Toronto), The Opera House (Toronto), and The Moustache Club (Oshawa). They are becoming known around the Greater Toronto Area as the band that wears the zombie mask and indulges in other whimsical props. To engage fans during their cover of Low Down and Dirty Remix of Eminem, vocalist Eric Nasu (Fallacy), puts on a mask and jumps off stage to hype up the crowd. After doing a lap around the audience he comes back on stage and continues to rap the lyrics with co-rapper Bobby Harris (Bobz).

With a future tour in mind and their second EP set to be released in 2015, Bohemian Grove will continue to break into the industry one song at a time.
