The Big Easy Funk Ensemble celebrates the amazing variety of music that has grown out of New Orleans. With influences from 60s funk legends The Meters and Dr. John to more recent groups like Galactic and Trombone Shorty. BEFE (pronounced 'beefy') mixes many genres of funk, jazz and blues to create awesome grooves and epic moments. A Mardi Gras party in 2014 brought the band together for the first time and by the end of the show both the musicians and the audience knew that this group had to continue. The Big Easy Funk Ensemble is fast becoming one of Vancouvers preeminent party bands by attracting fans and stimulating dance floors all across BC. https://www.facebook.com/bigeasyfunkensemble/
Eclectic, eccentric, energetic and always entertaining, Disco Funeral packs a hell of a punch. From their signature blend of dark ska funk and sing-a-long catchiness to down-tempo psychedelia and travelling gypsy ska madness, this is one party you definitely don’t want to miss!
Subscura is a performance arts collective comprised of multidisciplinary female artists. The troupe is known for using a unique mix of contemporary dance, hip-hop moves, aerial hoops and character theatrics and they are trained in numerable other forms of dance and circus arts. Drawing inspiration from the Vancouver electronic music community where they found their roots, the members have collaborated and performed alongside world-class musicians, fashion designers, visual artists and other performance collectives throughout British Columbia.https://www.facebook.com/subscura/
