A 10-piece band from Victoria, featuring everything from saxophone to guitars to didgeridoos, will be playing at the Grand Central on Wednesday.

Rocky Mountain Rebel Music describe themselves as the rally and the after party and a band that simultaneously helps you unwind and challenges you. They believe that counter-culture should be celebrated, and that’s exactly what they do.

With a current roster of 10 musicians from across Canada, England, Denmark and Brazil, the band draws influences from a broad range of music. Charged by Reggae, Rock, Funk, Dub, Dancehall, Punk and World rhythm, Rocky Mountain Rebel Music delivers an original sound that defies comparison.

RMRM hails from Vancouver Island. They released their second album “Vic Sound System” this spring and caught the airwaves when they won The Zone 91.3 FM “Band of the month” and Monday Magazine’s award for “Victoria’s Favorite Band 2010.” More recently RMRM opened for Ky-Mani Marley at Victoria Ska Festival’s sold out headlining show this summer.

With 13 Shows lined up in two weeks across BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan RMRM are fired up for their big finish at Open Sky Music Festival in Edmonton, Alberta.

Rocky Mountain Rebel Music plays at Grand Central Hotel, Fernie on Wednesday August 17. Doors open at 9 p.m. $5 cover.
