Event Description

To all the Ska & Reggae Fest Massive, far and wide! We have heard your cries and we agree – It's a crime that it's been seven whole years since The Pietasters – inarguably one of the most soulful ska bands North America has ever produced – has made the cross-continental trip from DC to Victoria. This 8-piece balances grace and power, softness and edge, like few other outfits can claim. There aren't many better ways to kill a Friday night than getting soulful with The Pietasters, and we've put together an incredible evening headlined by this phenomenal band featuring a couple of our Victoria favs.

We welcome back our dear friends, one of Victoria's most reliably fun and consistently rioutous sources of ska goodness, SWEETLEAF. Channeling the horn-laden sounds of ska revival powerhouses like Reel Big Fish and No Doubt, the six-piece (Half horns! Real horny!), SweetLeaf long ago established themselves as warriors in the battle to keep classic ska sounds alive and infusing them with new, funky energy. Getting the bands kicked off for the party is power-trio SEXWEATHER. If you haven't seen Sexweather before, you are in for a treat. And if you do know, you know better than to miss this band. Gruff, soulful, powerful – Sexweather could be playing straight punk rock one minute and hypnotic blues-based hip-hop (Or anything in between) the next. Truly unpredictable but always a thrill, Sexweather is one of Vic City's hidden gems. Last but certainly not least, our friend and resident expert in all things funky, FUNKEE WADD will be keeping the dancefloor on fire between sets with his expert bass-dealing skills, vast musical knowledge and taste.
