Night 2 of Garden City Grooves is going to be one of the most sonically diverse and relentlessly groovy nights Victoria is going to see in quite some time. One of the crown jewels of Pacific Northwest music scene, TRUE LOVES, make their Victoria debut! The seeds of this incredible band were planted at a 3-man jam session in Seattle in 2014 and the ensuing years have seen True Loves grow into a 8-piece behemoth and a true musical force. The bands live performances are the stuff of legend, garnering them millions of views on YouTube and appearances at festivals around North America. The band is its own block party, building temporary temples of rhythm for true groove-seekers to come get down and commune with the groove gods.

Coming up from California to join this party is BANG DATA, one of the Bay Area's hottest acts, making their Canadian debut! Like their home state, the band is built on Latin traditions but deeply hybrid in expression. Singer/emcee Deuce Eclipse and producer/instrumentalist Caipo build sonic worlds with their talent and deep knowledge of cumbia, hip-hop and rock. The band may be best known for their self-titled track “Bang Data” featured in the iconic fourth season of the hit show Breaking Bad. Bang Data's phenomenal energy and stage show have earned them spots on stage with the likes of Ozomatli, Panteon Rococo and Zion-I – to name but a few. Getting things started for this Friday night part is some of Victoria's finest hip-hop courtesy of the homie BRAINIAC. BRAINiac will be performing his phenomenal raps backed by his 4-piece band – pretty much a guarantee of hip-hop greatness. If you're not on the BRAINiac train yet, you better get on before he blows up. Don't sleep on this incredible night!

TRUE LOVES, BANG DATA & BRAINIAC LIVE at GARDEN CITY GROOVES VI

  • True Loves

    True Loves

    Northern Soul

    Listening to the abundant sounds of the Seattle-based funk & soul group, The True Loves, is like walking down a favorite neighborhood street, slapping-five with friends, checking up with clerks in their stores, admiring your own dark sun-glassed face in their windows, ducking under flowerpots and smelling the familiar smells of your most cherished locale. The band is its own block party.

    What began in 2014 as a jam session between three of the city’s best - pocket-perfect drummer David McGraw, intoxicating bassist Bryant Moore and otherworldly guitarist Jimmy James - has since blossomed into a global force that now features percussionist Iván Galvez and four horn players: trombonists Jason Cressey and Greg Kramer and saxophonists Gordon Brown and Skerik. Together, the group’s live performances have garnered them much local acclaim and millions of streams on YouTube.

    In 2017, the True Loves recorded their debut instrumental LP, Famous Last Words, which received citywide adoration and earned them spots at coveted festivals like Sasquatch, Doe Bay, and Upstream. In 2018, the group released the “Dapper Derp/Kabuki” 45” on WeCoast Records and in 2019 the famed Colemine Records released the “Famous Last Words/Mary Pop Poppins” 45.” And while the band nourishes audiences all over the country - from its start with former singer Grace Love to their current eight-piece lineup - there’s still plenty to go around.
  • Bang Data

    Bang Data

    Latin Hip-hop

    Based in Oakland, California - Bang Data is like California itself - built on Latino traditions, but deeply hybrid in expression. This beloved SF Bay Area based band - led by singer/emcee Deuce Eclipse who’s well known by hip-hop fans as an accompanying voice to the legendary Zion I, and producer/instrumentalist Caipo who has become a sought out name producing & mixing in the San Francisco music scene and abroad - they play cumbia, hip-hop and rock into a new language of sound for the people. The ensemble released their third studio album LOCO Spring 2018. Most known for their song placement of the self-titled track “Bang Data” from their album La Sopa” on AMC’s hit TV Drama ‘Breaking Bad’ Season 4, Episode titled ‘Salud’. But since the 2016 release of the Quiero Creedence - a Latin tribute album to legendary rock band Creedence Clearwater Revival -  Bang Data has received a growing wave of attention, including from the legends CCR themselves!

    Deuce Eclipse and Caipo met in 2008 through a mutual friend while Deuce was working on his solo effort with Amp Live of Zion I . Soon after, Deuce and Caipo began collaborating in the studio and began approaching ideas with an openness to experiment and combine influences from different genres. Within a few months of work they decided to re- lease they're first EP Maldito Carnaval. In 2010 the EP landed them a song feature on Itunes Latino with the track “Drivin Steady”. "

    In late 2011, a highlight in the bands journey was a song placement of the self-titled track “Bang Data” from their album La Sopa” on AMC’s hit TV Drama ‘Breaking Bad’ Season 4, Episode titled ‘Salud’. The song kicks in right after Don Eladio, played by Steven Bauer, makes a toast and says “Salúd” then shouts ‘Traigan a las chicas” before realizing he was poisoned by a Cartel business partner.!

    Other Tv & Film placements include: the film Spare Parts, featuring George Lopez, Criminal Minds:Be- yond Borders. Bang Data also provided music for El Rey Networks Wrestling Show ‘Lucha Underground’ for two seasons, as well as being the house band."

    Bang Data’s 2014 album, Mucho Poco, refines their style even more and offers 10 songs, among them “Amor Califas”, a thumpin’ samba-electro-cumbia take on Dr. Dre’s & Tupac’s “California Love” celebrating latino leaders and life in Califas. “Candela” a hypnotic beat with fearless rhymes makes you move as the chant “La Candela, prende la vela...” surrounds you. The title track “Mucho Poco” opens another dimension for the band breaking it down acoustically with in-your-face vocals and a touch of melodic emotion. "

    On stage, Bang Data take the songs to a whole other level when performing live. The energy and power of the bands thumping and contagious grooves pushes Deuce Eclipse singing and flow even further, including the occasional freestyle. "
    Bang Data has performed with Chicano Batman, Calle 13, Bomba Estereo, Cafe Tacvba, Ozomatli, Nortec Collective, A Band Of Bitches, Enanitos Verdes, among others."

    Bang Data recorded John Fogerty’s classic “Fortunate Son” fusing Rock and Cumbia rhythms as the canvas for Deuce’s vocals including a fearless rap section. The recording is now part of a Latin Creedence Clearwater R evival tribute album entitled “Quiero Creedence”, that was released Summer 2016 on Concord Picante. "

    The album includes tracks by Enrique Bunbury, Los Lobos, Juan Gabriel, Salvador Santana ft Juanes and Asdru Sierra, Billy Gibbons & Santa Cecilia, Los Lonely Boys, Enjambre, Enanitos Verdes just to name a few. Caipo helped conceive the idea of the CCR Tribute album and has been part of the team behind the project producing and mixing several tracks."
