The Get Down and Banana Fish Dance Orchestra At The Media Club – Review

When the crowd chants for more you give them what they want. MORE!!! They clearly take having a good time seriously as they do it so well and that’s what they pass along to their audience at a live show, a serious good time.

The Get Down – Album Review – Live Off The Floor

My favorite thing about The Get Down is their ability to effortlessly switch genres in their music and this album brings an unexpected surprise by breaking new ground for the band with hip hop. They have the ability to go from rock to reggae to a country feel and beyond.

Get up for The Get Down’s “Live Off The Floor” CD Release Tour

“Live Off The Floor” was originally supposed to be just a LIVE performance of previously recorded, and older unrecorded songs. But…as the recording date grew closer and closer, the plans evolved. With so many new songs under their belts, and excessive gigging within past months, they decided they wanted to capture the essence of the present! So, “Live Off The Floor” will be featuring all new recordings, all recorded live off the floor (no overdubs)! One track in particular was written especially for the record, featuring the rapping talents of their good friend , Mr. Collin Vyner (Sold Seperately).

The best 20 Vancouver indie bands of 2010 part I

This post of the BEST indie bands in Vancouver will be divided in two, in this first one we are going to explore the indie of the indie, bands that are emerging, new, fresh, experimental, not so well known, not established, they play in clubs and pubs but that we and our readers like and see and even befriend some of them. Some are not that new either but all of them have achieved success and buzz this last year so we include them here in our humble lists of our favourites. May this list serve as a recommendation for our overseas readers, may it serve as a reference, but also as an aid for these struggling artists. At the end, the ultimate objective is to entertain our visitors, the music fans of Vancouver and the world

I’m So Down With The Get Down


Sunday May 23rd, the night of the CD release party for the Get Down and I’m running late. My friend Evil Patrick and I hop on his scooter and arrive at the Railway Club, with mascara running down my face and Evil always the gentlemen helping me wipe it off, we head in just before the Get Down hit the stage.
The place is very busy, and it’s pretty obvious that the Get Down’s audience has increased in numbers since the last time I’d seen them. This of course doesn’t surprise …

All Aboard At The Railway Club – Vids

Here are a few videos from the April 7th show at The Railway Club with Aunts And Uncles, Waltz Darling, Sunday’s Best and The Get Down.
We want to thank Jason Chatterton for bringing his camera and shooting this for us. And we’d like the thugs in Latvia who stole our camera from Oswaldo to stub their toes or get kicked really hard in the shins.

All Aboard At The Railway Club

On Wednesday April 7th VanMusic put on a show at The Railway Club here in Vancouver.
It was just over a year ago that we launched VanMusic and almost one year to the day when we threw our first event. Coincidentally when we arrived at The Railway there was a birthday in progress and we even arrived to cake. Sometimes the universe speaks in strange ways…
The Railway is a great venue, there’s something about seeing that train near the ceiling as it travels along the track. …

The Morning After Show Playlist March 23rd

We started the show with this band called a Problem of Alarming Dimensions, I was running on the cliffs of St John´s New Foundland with these songs in me headphones like 5 years ago. What a feeling, a perfect soundtrack for the wind and the gray landscape of the sky and the fierce waves pounding the cliffs, what a strange city, I love it. It was fresh but old, astounding and exciting. Small, cozy and crazy. Check the photo, it was taken day day. Anyways enjoy the songs.

The Get Down

[gigpress_shows scope=upcoming artist=110 limit=10]
Well, that may be saying a lot. This orgy of sound got together in the winter of 2006, when it was learned that lead guitar player and celebrity chef Erick Bullen, actually played guitar…well! He was asked to jam with a core nucleus consisting of Tyson Watt , James Emerson, and Mark Ferraby. “Needless to say” they hit it off!
Forged with elements of rock, reggae, blues and alternative. The Get Down has established its own unique sound that sets them apart in …
