The New Groovement:
If The Roots had the soul of Aretha Franklin and the energy of Jamiroquai then you’d have The New Groovement. The band seamlessly blends elements of R&B, soul, and hip hop to create a funk-i-fied feast for the ears that is as unique as it is versatile. Punchy horns, sweet vocals, clever rhymes, and tight percussion combine to create energetic, feel-good music that will get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor!
The New Groovement is a rising star in BC’s music scene, currently nominated for Urban Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, winning Album of The Year at the Vancouver Island Music Awards, performing at all of the region’s biggest festivals, touring mainland BC, and receiving regular airplay on campus and commercial radio stations across Canada (including being selected as The Zone band-of-the-month in Victoria). They were also asked to open for critically acclaimed acts such as Five Alarm Funk, and have been praised in prominent print, television and radio media in Victoria for their energetic performances and stellar recorded material. After a successful recent crowdfunding campaign (raising nearly 170% of their goal), the band finished their first full-length studio album (The Orange Album) and released it to a sold out crowd on October 2, 2015. The album was created with the help of well-known Vancouver Island producer, Joby Baker (producer of Alex Cuba’s Grammy-winning albums) and has reached the Top 30 charts of campus and community radio stations in several provinces. This up-and-coming group has quickly made a name for itself with its massive shows and energetic parties; it’s one band you will not want to miss!
Grapefruit Is Impossible
Fun, unconventional music inspired by hip hop, jazz, funk with a citrus twist. Grapefruit Is Impossible is a group of whipper-snappers from Victoria, British Columbia operating under the same creative modus operandi: do whatever you want. Catch them performing live around Vancouver Island or in the produce isle at your favourite grocery store.
Scram and the First Team
SCRAM + THE FIRST TEAM consist of four members. SCRAM, an emcee who has been plying his craft for over 10 years in the underground westcoast hip hop scene, touring the country and co-founding the longest running freestyle cypher in BC, Outright Cypher. DJ BOBBY ARSON helped him co-found the cypher almost ten years ago. They've come back together with the help of two of the most beautiful voices to come out of the city in an eon, KADY SAVARD and DANIELA JACKSON. With their powers combined they plan to create a music that's soulfoul, in-your-face and brimming with the vibe of the coast they inhibit.
DJ Ness-T, aka: Vanessa Taylor favors deep bass lines and rocking girl vocals. From smooth deep house to trap bangers and everything in between. Always leaning towards to darker, bad ass, lip-biting sexiness of electronica.
Music has always been the driving force behind her creativity, her best friend on rough days, and ever present soundtrack to life. Ness-T believes all genres have their place and time, and there is no need to limit yourself to only one. Ness-T strives to incorporate the best of each category with each individual situation, while beautifully blending it all together with a sprinkling of high energy live drumming on top.
