Our Skary Spooktacular is a musical family reunion that brings together many of the same humans that embarked on a California tour together almost 15 years ago. That family is One Drop and Burnt but today's incarnation of it brings us Burnt, Hillside Hooligans and Grossbuster (Nathan Cummings one of One Drop's lead singers). 

We are excited to have California-based reggae/ska group BURNT back to Victoria after their appearance at Victoria's 20th Anniversary Ska & Reggae Festival this past summer. Burnt who love coming to Canada's west coast was initially based around Coachella Valley, but then relocated to San Diego in 2005, and eventually settled in San Francisco. The group combines reggae, dub, ska, soul, hip-hop, punk, and acoustic rock, and features environmentally and politically conscious lyrics, as well as songs about partying and relaxation. 

Burnt are the perfect match for their brothers Hillside Hooligans that blend ska, soulful reggae and punk. Hillside Hooligans comprise four of the eight members of One Drop. 

Grossbuster brings us a mixture of hip hop, reggae and drum n' bass. Nathan Cummings "Grossbuster" constantly experiments with new sounds with his midi controller. His knowledge of hip hop and reggae combined with his experience as one of the Island best keyboard players makes Grossbuster a versatile one-man unit!

  • BURNT

    BURNT

    Reggae

    California-based reggae-rock group BURNT came together in 2002, initially based around Coachella Valley, relocating to San Diego in 2005, and eventually settling in San Francisco. The group's sound combined reggae, dub, ska, soul, hip-hop, punk, and acoustic rock, and featured environmentally and politically conscious lyrics, as well as songs about partying and relaxation. The group maintained a strictly do-it-yourself approach to recording and releasing music and booking shows, playing anywhere from street corners and parks to festivals across the West Coast.
  • Hillside Hooligans

    Hillside Hooligans

    Classic Ska

    The Hillside Hooligans play gritty and soulful reggae, ska and punk-rock. Their style is characterized by honest lyrics, prominent solos, and plenty of style and tempo changes to keep things interesting.

    The four founding members played together in Victoria’s reggae/punk favorites One Drop for over 6 years before starting this new project with a fresh batch of songs. They are joined by other vetrans of the Victoria ska & reggae scene to fill out their 7 piece lineup. 

    The name HIllside Hooligans, references the street in Victoria’s Rock Bay industrial district where their original studio, the Hidden Gem was located. They converted a grungy old warehouse into a rehearsal and recording studio that served as a musical hub and hosted legendary jams and parties, especially during Victoria's Annual Ska & Reggae Festival. 
  • Grossbuster

    Grossbuster

    Dub Electronica

    When he's not pondering just how dope his moniker is, Victoria's Grossbuster is making beats. And we don't mean just "in the studio"- this fella works his midi controller and proceeds to bash out the riddims live. It's a sight to behold and an amazing mix of drums and samples to hear.
