Event Description

Victoria BC Ska & Reggae Society is excited to end our fall season with a beautiful acoustic ska/soul/reggae showcase with two seasoned singers in North America's ska scene. Ska/reggae/soul legend Vic Ruggiero (lead singer of The Slackers) returns to Victoria with Canadian ska/soul/reggae veteran Jory Kinjo at Upstairs Cabaret on Sat. Nov 30th (early show).

Many people know the band Vic Ruggiero is the lead vocalist of (The Slackers) but many people don't know that Ruggiero has maintained an active and healthy touring career for well over a decade. For example his brand new project Reggae Workers of The World with Jesse Wagner of The Aggrolites and Nico Leonard of the Badasonics has toured all over Europe in the short time they've been together. Vic Ruggiero finds time to be part of projects like these in addition to his solo and collaborative shows such as this one with Jory Kinjo.

Vic Ruggiero will be playing with Jory Kinjo who has been busy throughout his 20 year musical career. Starting in 1999 Kinjo began his career playing with a Calgary based soul band called Mocking Shadows who did 3 tours with the legendary B.B. King. His band Mocking Shadows also performed with such other artists as the Tragically Hip, ZZ Top and Buddy Guy.

Then fast-forward 8 years later Kinjo played bass with Canada's ska legends The Planet Smashers and then two years later created his own band which he is known most called "JK and The Relays."

Shortly after that he formed another band with his three brothers called The Kinjo Bros. They toured extensively and were invited to perform in Okinawa, Japan at the Naha Matsuri Festival which was broadcast live on TV and Radio in southern Japan.

When one takes into account the talent and experience of both of these ska/soul legends we are in for nothing less than an unforgettable concert!
