Here come the kings! We're talking about Brooklyn NY's ska/reggae kings THE SLACKERS that is... We celebrated their 25th Anniversary last time they came to Canada's west coast and now we're working on their journey to their dirty 30th! But no matter what point we are in life, it's always a joy to host our long time friends. 

Through The Slackers' mixed repertoire of music ranging from ska and reggae to soul, R&B, folk, and bossa nova they've managed to capture fans that span the spectrum of music with audiences of all ages. The band also plays with an aggressive edge and their songs veer in themes from the personal to the political. They're  a band like no other and certainly not what one may think from a ska band from their era in the US. From their 1996 release, Better Late Than Never through to 2016 with their self titled album The Slackers, they have established themselves as America's premiere interpreters and innovators of Jamaican music.

We figured if we're welcoming old friends like the Slackers back to Vancouver, we may as well get some other old pals to join them. Taking the stage before the Slackers for their Vancouver return are the Van City legends, LOS FURIOS. 

For more than two decades, Los Furios has been keeping Vancouver jumping with their ultra high-energy mix of ska, punk and reggae music. Their fire and energy makes them the perfect compliment to The Slackers reckless ska-punk assault. 

And while this is definitely a night of catching up with old friends, we couldn't let a chance to bring something new to our Ska & Reggae Massive. Vancouver's BREHDREN takes a Ska & Reggae Society stage for the first time to thrown down their 9-piece ska, reggae, indie and jazz mishmash. We've had our eye on the Vancouver upstarts for awhile and we're excited to finally have the opportunity to bring their music to you! Warming things up and holding it down between sets is our good friend and keeper of the culture, YOUNG ROYAL. Come join us for a night of old friends, new friends and high-octane grooves!"
