HOUSE MUSIC (for serious)


Having been relocated from San Francisco, Gano is now one of the fastest growing names in the BC dance music scene. Not that his name is getting longer, but with a flurry of big performances, has come a surge of loyal Booty Shakers and Disciples to his sound. And while Ganos' sound itself draws on a decade of experience, exploring underground scenes across North America, in just the past year his name has appeared alongside such international talent as Deep Dish, Gaudi, Terry Francis, and Kenny Glasgow. Also, Gano now joins some of our most passionate, dedicated local artists as the newest member of Sunset Collaborations. Catch him dancing behind the decks and Laying the Wobblin' Bass on Thick at a dance floor near you!


Thom Banks has been a staple in the dance music community in the City of Gardens since the late 90's. His blend of House music ranges from Jackin' House to Minimal Tech Funk to Deep Techno House to straight-up House music.

His Tight Mixing, Unparalleled Track Selection and Keen Ability in Interpreting his Crowd on the dance floor has allowed him to play alongside names such as Mathew Jonson, Dave Seaman, Mark Farina, Lawnchair Generals, The Mole, Bassnectar, and Dirt Crew, just to name a few.
