tofino concert - ruby jean

august 13, 2010Ruby Jean

Friday, August 13, 2010
Tofino Legion
Tickets $15 | Doors 9pm

Dance-y to a thoroughly sweaty and satisfying extent, Ruby Jean is the thing that Gloria Estefan was warning you about when she sang the "rhythm is gonna get you," and the Maritimes' high-energy answer to the dance-rock movement that seems to be sweeping the nation. Pulsating, nasty, punky, groovy — Ruby Jean is all of these things and more, a confident, smirking monster of a good time that seems destined to take the country by storm. Ruby Jean shows are ground-poundingly ecstatic. Ruby Jean harvest sounds akin to Tiga, Daft Punk, MSTRKRFT and 80s-era Madonna. A motley assortment of Halifax indie-rock ne’er-do-wells, Ruby Jean have cobbled together a formula for
organic dance party success.

august 21, 2010Marty Dread

Saturday, August 21, 2010
Tofino Legion
Tickets $20 | Doors 9pm

Marty Dread was born in the Bronx New York and moved the Hawaiian island of Maui as a young child. His career as a reggae artist started with his 1992 hit a 'Wicked Wahine'. Marty's style is rich in island vibe and traditional reggae roots but with a healthy dose of hip hop and dance hall. Constantly on the cutting edge, whether live on stage, or in the studio, Marty Dread is known as 'Hawaii's reggae ambassador.' Drawing inspiration from his tropical home of Maui, Hawaii, Dread rules as the island's hottest performer-recording artist, with over two decades of constant live performances, four Hoku award nominations (Hawaii's version of the Grammy's), and a constant international touring schedule.

tofino concert - skratch bastid

august 24, 2010Skratch Bastid

Tuesday, August 24, 2010
Tofino Legion
Tickets $10 | Doors 9:00pm

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 - aaron nazrul and the boom booms

august 28, 2010Aaron Nazrul
and the Boom Booms

Saturday, August 28, 2010
Tofino Legion
Tickets $20 | Doors 9:00pm

Aaron Ross is the bird on the branch in the tree of life and perches all day and all night unless you play some funky jams and then he’ll flap down and flap around the dancefloor, and maybe even sing. He’s East Vancouver born and raised, and has hoofed it all over the globe, with no qualms about doing it again and again. Aaron plays the nylon strings with grace but more noteably has a powerful and emotive voice, one that carries the band’s songs out of the “pretty good” range and into the ”spicy, saucy, smooth, singable soulful salad of a song” range instead.
Geordie Hart is the hawk in the evening beams, swooping amongst the ferns in a symphony of light. He went to school with Aaron, and they’ve been making jams since they were 10 years old. Geordie is 3 years educated in the fine art of Jazz music, also lending his ear and bass strings to Malleus Trio, a Vancouver-based ensemble filled out by Ben Brown on drums and Dominic Conway on Sax. Geordie has been known to cook a fine meal many-a-night on the propane stove in the RV, drives like a madman, and rocks the western front like a stuntman rocks a stunt.
Tom van Deursen is a kootenay child. After an adventerous youth scampering around the forest waving wooden swords, Tom moved on to bigger things in life. Namely, built-to-scale wooden rifles. Next came SWAT, and then eventually highschool, which brought the arts into the limelight. Tom enjoyed life in a small town, good friends, rock and roll, eventually starting his own rock band, Carnival Red. Moments before that became a global phenomonon, however, fate interviened in the form of a bags, shovels and dirty work – treeplanting. It was there, in the bowels of British Columbia, that he met Aaron and Geordie, and thus the current Boom Booms, in their most infant form, were born. Tom has been twanging strings since he was 13, and at age 20 he brings a bit of rock and roll to the band’s sound.
Theo Vincent IS rock n’ roll. Appearing in as many high-profile bands as he does high-profile jams Vancouver-wide, Theo has been with the Boom Booms since day..well, realistically, day 3, and when not slaying it up with local/global rhythm powerhouse Kutapira, he is a Boom Boom drummer, hype guy, and provides the pounding world pulse at the core of the songs. Theo plays over 5,000 shows a month and barely has time for anything but boom boomin’ around and doin’ his thang.
