Jayson Warner Smith

The 2019 Fredericton Tattoo Expo is very excited to have as our special guest for the weekend Jayson Warner Smith.

Jayson has played the death row inmate Wendell Jilks in Rectify, he appeared on season 6 of the Vampire Diaries and most recently portrayed Gavin in season 7 & 8 of The Walking Dead.  

Jayson would love to meet you at the 2019 Fredericton Tattoo Expo March. 29/30/31 he will be there for pictures and autographs.  


Wintersleep is happy to announce that their seventh record, “In the Land Of,” is coming out March 29, 2019 via Dine Alone Records! Like all Wintersleep records, In the Land Of encourages thought and introspection. The new record’s title is an incomplete thought, a blank that is filled in across the record with different places, words, and sounds. “A lot of the songs touch on this idea of being a stranger or feeling foreign in all the different landscapes in which the songs took place lyrically,” explains guitarist Paul Murphy. “It all relates back to the land,” adds guitarist Tim D’Eon. Join them Thursday, March 28 at Boyce Farmers’ Market to experience the new record live!

Monster Truck

Born in 2009 from the ashes of various Canadian Indie bands, Monster Truck began as a sonic affront to the very industry its members were bred from. There’s something comforting about a band name that delivers exactly what you expect to hear. The constant show regiment and recording process is sharpening the band’s delivery and there’s no doubt that anyone still interested in original and authentic rock music will be compelled to pay attention. Monster Truck will continue doing what they do best, steamrolling from town to town leaving legions of fans in their wake. Get ready to rock Saturday, March 30 at Boyce Farmers’ Market!

The Tortoise The Hare & The Millionaire

Hailing from Fredericton, three piece blues/rock trio The Tortoise The Hare & The Millionaire have had a very successful 2017. With less than 2 years of live shows under their belts they have played just about every festival and venue in New Brunswick. In September they were awarded Runner Up at the 2017 Stingray Rising Star contest during Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival. Their live shows have progressed from solely covers to original material with influences ranging from The Record Company, Lucas Nelson to The Allman Brothers. They have shared stages with The Hypochondriacs, Backyard Devils, Joyful Noise, Stephen Lewis and the Big Band of Fun, and many more. They are currently in the process of recording their first EP with a release date of summer 2018.


SNAP is a Burlesque Revue that brings sexy fun, humor, song, and dance to any stage they are on.  They have been performing since May of 2011.  Their shows raise awareness and funds for a list of animal welfare charities.  To date SNAP has raised close to $100,000

Kill Chicago

Fredericton-based group Kill Chicago is a blues record played at the wrong speed. They take traditional instrumentation, wrap it around a folk skeleton, and make it dance with 70s Brit punk energy.
Kill Chicago will be rockin’ the Fredericton Tattoo Expo after party at Mama’s pub.  A few tickets will be available to the public and more details will come soon!!!

Freeda Whales

The Fredericton Tattoo Expo would like to welcome guest emcee for the weekend Freeda Whales. Freeda says her style is sleazy, cheesy and greasy. Her favourite artist to lip sync to is Lizzo. Freeda mind, Freeda body, Freeda Whales! Come meet Freeda, get a picture with Freeda at the Fredericton Tattoo Expo.

The Galpines

If you enjoy honky tonk on the bawdy side, Moncton band The Galpines will be right up your alley. They are best described as a foot-stompin, harmony-centric, hyphen-lovin’, all-female comedy band. They credit themselves with pioneering an exciting new genre of music they have lovingly dubbed “Crass Country.” You’ll hear tunes about streaking, binge drinking, and trips to the drunk tank. They draw on influences such as Birdcloud, Those Darlins, and Garfunkel & Oates. East Magazine says basically it’s punk masquerading as country. The Galpines have a new CD out too, called “Sorry Mom”. Buy a copy!!!

The Muskrat Singers

With three First Nation communities in and around the Fredericton/Oromocto area we are excited to have the amazing drumming and singing of the Muskrat Singers.
The Muskrat Singers will kick off the Expo on Friday afternoon March 29th

Muskrat Singers

Mark Roberts and the Shore Road Drifters

This is a five piece rootsy band fronted by local singer-songwriter Mark Roberts. The band has influences of folk, country, blues and rock, as it rolls through a set list of Mark’s original songs, and some of their favourite cover songs. Other members of the band are: Ross Beckett (lead guitar), Ollie Leblanc (bass), Mike Munro (keyboards) and Tom Blizzard (drums).
