Oronofest is happy to announce that we will be having bands perform from noon to 10pm this year! We will have two performance locations this year. The first one is on Park Street amongst the vendors and the second location is at the Orono Library Gazebo next to the Manantler Beer Garden.
There will be plenty of toe tapping tunes so be sure to come out and enjoy some amazing musicians.
The Mayhemingways emerge within a region ripe with musical reputation in Ontario Canada. Benj Rowland executes lead vocals and employs a mixed bag of folk instruments like banjo, mandolin, accordion, and acoustic guitar. Josh Fewings anchors the tunes on the drums and elevates the melody with harmony vocals. They are a strong musical duo that converges with “Mind-bending and original music with deep roots in the tradition of dark North American folk” (Tom Wilson, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings & Lee Harvey Osmond).

John’s inspiration for music stems from his surroundings, upbringing, family, work, and real-life experiences, combining a passion for music and sense of performing for the sake of performing, to please the listening audience. John is the Music Man from another time, with his own interpretation that we all can relate to. With a signature and self-proclaimed 70’s sound, John takes us on a personal tour of what Life Is Like in Ontario, Canada, from his own unique perspective, and reviving our own Memories.
Incorporating covers of popular artists from past decades, don’t be surprised if you find yourself singing and clapping along to tunes from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, to the latest great hits.

Easily recognized by their crisp harmonies, clever hooks, and high-energy performances, I, the Mountain has built a loyal and growing following across Southern Ontario. Formed in 2012, while attending Trent University in Peterborough, ON, I, The Mountain quickly became a household name across the city. As well-known Canadian artists toured through town, they established themselves as the staple openers for acts such as The Strumbellas, The Wooden Sky, and Elliot Brood. Now, as the band moves on from their lives in Peterborough, they continue to grow their fanbase in Kitchener-Waterloo, Toronto, and beyond. Fresh off their recent studio collaborations with Canadian music icons Simon Ward (The Strumbellas) and Jonas Bonetta (Evening Hymns) I, the Mountain is set to bring their trademark indie-folk sound to mainstages across Canada.
