A Clockwork Concept is a Toronto- based band who have been playing together in various lineups since 2012. More than just a classic rock cover band, “ACC” has devoted their musical talents to digging up those great songs that haven’t been saturated by too much airplay. There’s a precocious swagger to their playing: songs don’t always finish as planned, which creates a mashed-up, spontaneous energy in live performances. Backed by brothers Julian Craig and Jerritt Craig (drums and bass, harmonies), Nigel Ali- Digweed (lead guitar), vocalists Justin Wheatley and Todd Ferguson (rhythm guitar) have all the raw energy and funky grooves they require in order to drive any crowd into a fist-pumping, chorus-chanting, wistful nostalgia. Don’t miss A Clockwork Concept.
