July Rocks! Like its namesake, the musical act July brings memorable experiences to every performance. Though primarily a rock band, July is a multifaceted act. Our acoustic show variation features unique perspectives such as Cum On Feel The Noise with accordion and Beyonce's Halo with mandolin.

Biography

With Jodie Leslie's smoky vocals and dynamic stage presence, Shane Painter and Rolland Vidok's danceable groove-oriented playing, David Shepherd's keyboard “ear candy” and Richard Monkman's flash and dazzle guitar licks, July draws the crowd into an intimate place where they feel like a part of the show.
Originally formed in 2002, July draws from a variety of musical sources to bring about its intense hybrid rock sound.
Take a funky rock drum and bass foundation, add in a jazz influenced rock guitar wizard and combine with keyboards steeped in legit and hip hop music. Finally, infuse with an over the top powerhouse vocal, laced with southern rock, blues and country licks. What’s the result? A hybrid that is reminiscent of hard rock, funk and pop all at once.
July’s intense sound and dynamic stage presence have allowed for a variety of shows from standard bar and casino events to festivals like the The Taste Of Edmonton, Ice On Whyte Festival, Sherwoodstock, The Rainmaker Rodeo and The Beaumont Blues Festival and concert openings for such artists as Trooper, Lee Aaron, Alannah Myles, Harlequin and Bryan Adams. Whether its a crowd of 70 or 7000, July delivers the summer fun that is synonymous with its name.
