Nanaimo band Dope Soda is performing at its own fundraiser with the goal to raise money for a studio album.
The six musicians perform Dope Soda’s eclectic mix of jazz, reggae, hip hop, punk and ska at the Queen’s tonight (July 26) at 10 p.m.
DJ All Good and special guests help the band raise as much money as possible.
Dope Soda formed in late 2011, a fresh concoction of six of the top jazz, rock, and Jamaican-music-inspired musicians from Vancouver Island, with membership in acts such as Current Swell, Rocky Mountain Rebel Music, The Bananafish Dance Orchestra, The Kiltlifters, and Kings Without.
The band is led by a three-piece horn section with roots in the highly-regarded Vancouver Island University jazz department, buoyed by a funky rhythm section.
Tickets are $10. Please call 250-754-6751.
