London based Ivory Hours to perform at the 108th Yates Cup, presented by Investors Group

HAMILTON, Ont. – Ontario University Athletics (OUA) is pleased to announce Ivory Hours as the featured musical act for the halftime performance at the 108th Yates Cup, presented by Investors Group.

Ivory Hours is a sassy alt-pop trio from London, Ontario, home of the Western Mustangs. The band was formed by Luke Roes (vocals/guitar) in 2012, and also features Chris Levesque (bass) and Thomas Perquin (drums). 

Earlier this year on June 9th, Ivory Hours released their debut full-length album ‘Morning Light’ which was co-produced by Dan Brodbeck (The Cranberries, Dolores O'Riordan) and mastered by Joao Carvalho (Lights, Stars).

Like JJ and the Pillars last year, Ivory Hours recently won 102.1 The Edge’s ‘Next Big Thing’, contest, while their single, ‘Warpaint’ has been a fixture on Top 30 countdown.  The trio from London also recently won the Canada’s Walk of Fame Emerging Artist Mentorship Program.

"We're honored to be part of a Canadian sports classic,” said Ivory Hours singer Luke Roes.  “See you all at the game!"
