The Maquinna Pub
Tickets $10 | Doors 8pm

“Scott Cook has distilled his travels down into songs powered by a sharp eye for imagery, a healthy dose of humanity, and that unforgettable voice, that at the same time intones the rigors of the road and the most comfortable couch you have ever slept on.”

tofino concert - skratch bastid

june 10, 2011Skratch Bastid

Friday, June 10, 2011
Tofino Legion
Tickets $12 | Doors 9pm

Born in Halifax, raised on Planet Rock, Skratch Bastid has been a hip hop junkie since before he became a teen. Quickly realizing the role of the rapper wasn’t his forte, he applied his obsessive musical interest to DJing, which moved naturally from cassette mixtapes in his basement to performing on stage with groups and competing in DJ battles before finding his niche playing parties, clubs and festivals. An addicted record collector inspired by many styles of music, Skratch moves quickly between genres and smoothly between tempos, while keeping things quintessentially funky. Yes, quintessentially. Technically apt, but soulfully grounded. His Get Up! mix was heralded as one of last year’s best Mix CDs by TurntableLab, spinning hip-hop, funk, disco and rock into a quilt of awesome. Satisfaction guaranteed.

tofino concert - five alarm funk

june 25, 2011Five Alarm Funk
with Kim Churchill

Saturday, June 25, 2011
Tofino Legion
Tickets $20 | Doors 9pm

Five Alarm Funk is a Vancouver-based, 12-piece rhythm machine that pounds out a delirium-inducing live show, brimming with original funk and afro-beat grooves. The band’s horn and percussion-driven instrumental jams feature searing guitar leads and horn solos wailing and soaring above a four-man percussion maelstrom that is grounded by Neil Towers’ juicy bass lines. The band’s wicked cross-rhythms and frenetic, costumed stage show appeals to jazz fans and clubs kids alike. Five Alarm Funk has carved out a word-of-mouth fan base from a series of crowd-pleasing performances at clubs, concert halls, and festivals throughout B.C. Interaction between the crowd and the band is a huge part of the show, and they try to make every show an event.

tofino concert - kim churchill

june 25, 2011Kim Churchill

Saturday, June 25, 2011
Tofino Legion
Tickets $20 | Doors 9pm

Kim’s style is explosive, with intricate fingerpicking, percussive beats on the body of the guitar, and two-handed tapping intertwined with an earthy stomp box, powerful harmonica melodies and soulful voice. His songwriting reflects his coastal lifestyle - growing up on the East Coast of Australia, with the surf at his front door - and his new nomadic life on the road. Kim Churchill is a live spectacle and a true virtuoso but unlike so many others who could be labelled as such, he transmits a vibe of genuine modesty. Perhaps his other love, surfing, keeps him grounded. Though his playing is often complex, his songs have an easy, natural flow that certainly reflect the peace of mind that rolling waves and a rising sun possess.

july 2, 2011Blue King Brown

Saturday, July 2, 2011

Blue King Brown is a band for your hips, heart and head. The Australian collective melds a deeply percussive sense of rhythm with sweet melodicism and politically astute lyrics.

A modern take on roots music, uniquely Australian with an unquestionable international feel. Blue King Brown are known for their full force, high energy, live show.
