Event Description

Friday, November 9, 2012 Victoria BC Ska Society is proud to bring you another all Island groove session with three bands that cover everything from West African rhythms to Latin/jazz, ska, reggae, funk and a bit of rock.

This show is in honour of Bananafish Dance Orchestra's brand new full length album. Bananafish Dance Orchestra (based in Nanaimo) have continued to gain success on and off the Island over the past three years. The band has played at several major festivals including Kaslo Jazz Festival, Vancouver Island Music Fest, Victoria Jazz Fest and ofcourse the Victoria Ska Festival where they had the honour of supporting Toots and the Maytals on the Ska Fest's Kick Off show! The energy the band brings to the people is undeniable so there's a good chance you'll be drenched with sweat after seeing them.

Supporting Bananafish Dance Orchestra is Victoria based Kikeyambay. Kikeyambay was born out of a collaboration between the band's leader Alseny Diallo's deep knowledge of Guinean modern and traditional music, and the passion of Victoria's Dancing Moon Multicultural Arts Company director, Ilana Moon. Kikeyambay brings a dynamic, energetic traditional West African drum and dance show and a Electric Afrofusion Orchestra.

Sweet Leaf are Victoria's newest ska band on the scene. Led by Chris Jones of Crude Cultura fame Sweet Leaf bring quicker offbeats and music to sweat to. For this show the band will be presenting some fresh material and a couple new members.

Tickets available at Lyle's Place, Ditch Records, The Reef & ticketweb.ca
