Event Description

We know we said the Victoria Ska & Reggae Society was taking a bit a rest, but we couldn’t resist doing one last play for 2022. It’s on a Thursday but the next day is a holiday so you’ll have time to rest and reflect.

Thursday, November 10th Victoria Ska & Reggae Society in affiliation with Garden City Grooves is proud to welcome back UK turntable wizard and bass master JFB to Victoria after nearly four years away to rock our ears and get our bodies moving. One of the most renowned and beloved turntablists on the planet, JFB has traversed the globe dazzling crowds and leaving a trail of sweaty dancers wherever he touches the decks. So unparalleled are his abilities that 2021 saw him win #1 no less than three times at the DMC World DJ Championships where he won World Champion, World Beat Juggling Champion and World DJ Team Champions – BREXecutioners (with DJ Angelo). His sets have become the stuff of legend, earning him regular spots at some of the biggest electronic music festivals in the world – most notably for us on the west coast, the legendary Fractal Forest at Shambhala. When JFB is behind the decks you can be guaranteed you're going to get an endless array of sonic twists and turns, relentless genre-hopping delivered by two of the most skilled hands in the game. Come find out (or relearn) why JFB is considered to be one of the mightiest party rockers in the game today.

Also coming out on this night is the mighty maestros of mischief, the juggernauts of jungle funk, APEX BREAKS. Every time that Apex Breaks takes to the stage, their legend grows exponentially. Their show at Hermann's Upstairs on the opening night of this summers Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest was one of the most talked about performances this year and set the tone for an unforgettable weekend. You're highly unlikely to a see a funner, more unpredictable, more engaging band on the west coast right now. Apex Breaks lays down heavy funk with hits of hip-hop, soul, rock, dub and a big slopping plate of psychedelia. Made of some of Victoria's best musicians from a variety of beloved projects, when Apex Breaks is on the stage they radiate joy and fun as they indulge the audience in their shared love of music and the bonds of musical community. We are also very excited to welcome reggae and bass expert GURU to our stage for the first time. With more than two decades of experience, playing an endless array of genres, Guru is equally at home in the worlds of reggae/rocksteady and high octane drum n' bass. His vast knowledge of music and immense talents behind the decks has found him taking the stage of some of the most notable festivals in western Canada – Shambhala, Wicked Woods and FozzyFest. Come join us for this one of a kind party.
