An explosion of musical medleys make The Boom Booms

The Boom Booms are bomber!!  What I’m saying is that The Booms Booms, a six piece Latin-soul-funk-rock-reggae band from Vancouver, could easily turn your Tuesday into a full-blown dance party. They offer a medley of musical stylings that could turn a Tuesday into an international musical odyssey.  And really, who doesn’t want that? Touring veteran, Aaron Narul heads the group, vocalizing the sweet sounds of cultures beyond while strumming the latin-friendly nylon guitar. Geordie Hart on stand-up, sit-down and strap-on bass, Sean Ross on vocals + ukulele/cavacino, Tom Van Deursen on electric guitar, Theo Vincent on ragin’ percussion and drumkit, and Richard Brinkman on drums that he keeps deep in his pocket. The band plays with a confidence learned by touring the world, entertaining and connecting with people of all walks. The group’s influences are vast and can be heard in each of their songs. Echo’s of The Buena Vista Social Club, Gregory Isaacs, The Budos Band, Manu Chao, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Damian Marley, Otis Redding, Sam Cook, Marvin Gaye, Paul Simon all resonate throughout their repertoire.  The sound is going to get you to get up, dance, and love somebody.  Major keys and uplifting messages of hope and love are the go here.  Blow your Tuesday into an uplifting musical adventure with The Boom Booms. They will be gracing the stage of the Central bar in Fernie on Tuesday, October 11.
