What makes a supergroup? Vancouver’s THE JUDYS are post-punk legends who joined forcesin 2014 to create a unique sound that combines elements of retro garage rock and swampy R&B. Their many live shows electrify crowds and devoted fans alike.

Front centre and in your face, dynamic frontman, Dennis Mills is a 27-time veteran of the
Commodore stage – 19 of those with the Jazzmanian Devils. Wielding his beloved Gretch, guitar God, Scott Fletcher, – The Roswells/Memory Day/Eddy D.and Sex Bombs, plays with a nod to the Beatles and Neil Young, while Whammy award winner Pete Fiend – The Living Deadbeats/The Fiends conjures hypnotic rhythms on his fuzzy bass. Dano 5 0 – The B-sides pilots the sexy lap steel/keyboard groove station while drum virtuoso Taylor Little – Bughouse Five, The Payolas/Art Bergman hammers out the beat that keeps the party moving.
THE JUDYS feature stellar background vocals from Shelley Grace Preston and Cass King
In April, THE JUDYS released their debut The Very Best of The Judys, an 11-song release on vinyl and cd on Heavy Like A Baby Records.

Music critic Tom Harrison: “Too early for me to have favourite tracks but, for now, Freedom 85 is a front runner.”
