Vancouver’s sensational prog-funk quintet BRASS CAMEL kicks off their 10-week, second national tour in Victoria alongside rising Victoria band POSH COAT. Ride a train of incredible musicianship, lush harmonies and a infectious hooks.

BRASS CAMEL
Brass Camel is a unique Vancouver-based rock group made up of five experienced young musicians, their collective accomplishments include performing at New York’s Apollo Theater, jamming with guitar icon Les Paul, racking up countless studio sessions and covering hundreds of thousands of miles on the road before coming together. Recently having released their debut album, mixed by multiple Juno-winner Ben Kaplan, Brass Camel’s singular sound mashes together the diverse influences of prog, funk, blues rock and fusion then ties them together with the kind of neat bow only attained by five musicians who are gunning for glory on the same frequency. The band’s musicianship, songwriting and work ethic have led to endorsements from such companies as Sabian, Rotosound UK and Los Cabos. After a string of consecutive sell-out shows in Vancouver, the Camel embarked on their first national tour of Canada, a successful 13,500km undertaking. Capping off a transformative 2023 with a performance alongside Five Alarm Funk at a sold out Commodore Ballroom, Brass Camel is embarking on a ten week coast-to-coast tour of Canada in spring 2024 which aims to set the stage for the band to tour extensively in the months and years to come.

POSH COAT
Posh Coat is a great band to see live and even more fun to hang out with after the show. The trio is making waves off the shores of Victoria, Canada with their Strokes and Killers inspired Indie rock music. They are quickly being noticed as an up and coming force in the Victoria music scene and are drawing an ever growing crowd of dedicated fans with each live show.

Posh Coat’s both driving and laid-back styles create a framework for their stories which capture the essence of the everyday and pinpoint the beauty in the mundane. They bring a freshness to this generation’s friction between indifference and fervor.

After playing for a few years together in Tuesday’s Roadkill, Andrew Whitney (Guitar/Lead Vocals), Tricia True (Bass/Vocals) and Luke Hanna (Drums) have emerged as a tight musical unit with a unique sound and entertaining live show.

Posh Coat is currently recording their debut album with Victoria native, Ben Erikson, and has been dropping singles since July of 2023. This small group packs a punch and will bring any venue to life with their live performance.
