Event Description

We're closing out Garden City Grooves 2023 with the triumphant return of Victoria's titans of funk, THE NEW GROOVEMENT. The New Groovement has come a long way since they rocked the very first Garden City Grooves nearly a decade ago. In that time they've long established themselves as one of the coasts go-to acts for serious funk. With newly solidified lineup and lots of new music in their arsenal, it's immediately evident that The New Groovement has hit a new milestone in their life as a band – attacking their songs with relentless energy and vigour. The band has always had some of the most refined musical chops in the city and somehow they seem to have only grown stronger. A New Groovement show promises big horns, big raps, and even bigger grooves. If you like music that makes you dance and feel good, you don't want to miss your chance to catch the New Groovement in one of the nicest venues to see music in the city.

We are very excited to have Winnipeg's APOLLO SUNS joining us for their Garden City Grooves debut! The Winnipeg 9-piece have marked their territory as one of the most refreshing and innovative live acts with their incredibly unique mix of jazz, rock and psychedelia. The immense talents have twice earned them “Instrumental Artist of the Year” at the Western Canadian Music Awards (2018 and 2020). Their music is a sonic gumbo of groove, guaranteed to get any dance floor – in this country or any other – dancing and jumping with reckless abandon. This is surely going to be a show that our groove-lovin' audience isn't going to soon forget. Also on the bill for our big closing party is one of the straight-up coolest bands Victoria has produced in some time, power-trio SEXWEATHER. Every time Sexweather gets up on stage their reckless joy radiates from the stage and infects the audience. A roller-coaster of musical ideas, seemingly unbound by genre constraints. Whatever music they're playing, Sexweather plays it HARD.

Getting things started and keeping the temperature up between bands is Vancouver Island legend, DJ ALL GOOD. One of Canada's most renowned turntablists and the proprietor of The Turntemple – a mobile DJ base that tours the Island, spreading a knowledge and love of DJing – the Naniamo homie DJ All Good is one of the true keepers of the art and culture of DJing and we are stoked to have him with us as we close out Garden City Grooves in serious style.

Note: At this time, White Eagle Hall is not wheelchair accessible.
