Bass player J.P. Trottier and drummer Tom Rimmer make up the rest of the team.

Coming up on half a decade of Zep worshiping, the A Whole Lotta Led fan base extends from just turned-legal teens to grizzlies who remember rocking out the ’70s.

Expect all the classics: Dazed and Confused, No Quarter and Immigrant Song.

Sweatshop Union

Friday, July 28

West Coast conscious hip hop crew Sweatshop Union returns to Whistler. As the name implies, the Union built its reputation as a hip hop band with a conscience, concerned with the state of the union and the perils of consumerism, rather than the usual gangsta’ posturing.

The Juno nominees strike out with thoughtful socio-political musings amidst a mish mash of booty grooving beats with catchy choruses and humorous tongue-in-cheek jibes.

The group sell tens of thousands of albums worldwide on the Battle Axe Records label. They’ve toured with Jurassic 5, Blackalicious and Black Eyed Peas as well as with label mates Swollen Members and Abstract Rude.

Award nominations keep piling up with Canadian Radio Music Award, MuchMusic Video Awards and Juno nominations to their credit.

The Vancouver collective toured the U.S. for the first time this year, opening more than 50 shows for Swollen Members.
