Event Description

Dope Soda hail from mid Island (Nanaimo BC) and are one of the most active hard working ska/reggae bands in the province. Formed in late 2011, Dope Soda present a fresh concoction of six of the top jazz, rock, and Jamaican-music-inspired musicians from Vancouver Island, with membership in acts such as Current Swell, The Bananafish Dance Orchestra and The Kiltlifters.

The band is led by a three-piece horn section with roots in the highly-regarded Vancouver Island University Jazz Department, buoyed by a funky rhythm section that serves up sips of bubbling Hammonds and Wurlitzers, shots of distorted guitar, and heavy bass--in your face.

Dope Soda jumps back and forth between reggae jams, punk rock assaults, happy ska romps, and hiphop throwdowns--a thirst quencher for audiences who need good rhymes and good times.

Guests of honour for this joyous occassion include the 17 piece Victoria party ensemble The Leg Up Program and Nanaimo's latest reggae, jazz, funk party band Boomshack - comprised mostly of graduates from Vancouver Island University’s jazz program.

When you put all three bands together one after the other the sum of its parts equal a ton of fun.
