Event Description

The New Groovement will be releasing their long-anticipated full-length studio album at this year’s Garden City Grooves festival. If The Roots had the soul of Aretha Franklin and the energy of Jamiroquai then you’d have The New Groovement. The band seamlessly blends elements of R&B, soul, and hip hop to create a funk-i-fied feast for the ears that is as unique as it is versatile. Punchy horns, sweet vocals, clever rhymes, and tight percussion combine to create energetic, feel-good music that will get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor!

This rising star in BC’s music scene has performed at all of Southern Vancouver Island’s biggest festivals, toured mainland BC and received regular airplay on Victoria radio stations (including being selected as The Zone 91.3 band-of-the-month for August 2015). They were also asked to open for critically acclaimed acts such as Five Alarm Funk and The Coup, and have been praised in prominent print, television and radio media in Victoria. Their new album was produced by well-known Victoria producer, Joby Baker (producer of Alex Cuba’s Grammy-winning album). This up-and-coming group has quickly made a name for itself with its massive shows and energetic parties; it’s one band you will not want to miss!

BOOMSHACK (Nanaimo)
Just dance. Those two words have been the driving force behind Boomshack since the beginning. Composed mostly of graduates from Vancouver Island University’s jazz program in 2013, Boomshack straddles the line between what is pop and what is hip. Smooth reggae and dirty funk are just as at home as jazz harmony and the beat of a clave. Every night is a celebration of music where nothing is off limits so long as the crowd is moving.

WEIRD PARTY (ft. Astrocolor)
Weird Party is a band on the rise. The Victoria band has recently been nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for their debut album, 2014’s LP Mellow Funk Vol.1, as well as being part of this year’s Rifflandia 2015 and BreakOut West festivals. Weird Party combine elements of funk, ambient, jazz, and psychedelic, creating an eclectic soundtrack to guide you through any evening.
