“That’s the most fun band that might EVER play this venue”
-Cool Dj JPQ upon last seeing the Peptides
With tunes as hot as the sun and players as gorgeous as the moon, The Peptides will move you like the planets in orbit. They brilliantly embrace the kitsch of show tunes, Bond Songs, and all the swankiest swingers 45 collections. It would be music for shag carpet and rotating wet bars, but…with modern twists and primal shouts...they are able to see the future.
This is the band that should be playing to greet the mothership in the event that Mars ever attacks. No extra-terrestrial with a glowing heart or finger would be able to resist letting the Peptides crew of classic entertainers, crack musicians, and vibrant vixens ingratiating them to help make this world a better place.
If you don’t dance, you’ll smile.
If you DO dance, you’ll be telling future generations of human and alien alike what happened that one night in that basement in West Toronto.
Sunshine State was born a decade ago when two friends, Grammy and Juno winning guitarist/songwriter/producer James Bryan andPanamanian-Norwegian-Canadian singerAleza Codevin started writing songs about her search for love. Joined by more friends, bassist extraordinaire Marc Rogers and percussion maestro Daniel Stone, Sunshine State’s infectious acoustic sound and hook filled songs mix Bossa Nova, acoustic soul, and 80’s New Wave influences into something beautiful .Their debut album was a hit across Asia and has steadily found loyal fans in North America , UK and beyond.
