Their live show has more energy than a hurricane and when The Boom Booms storm into the Parksville Community and Conference Centre (PCCC) March 28 the concert will no doubt be electric.

The Vancouver-based indie soul band has been making original music since 2008 and gathering a huge loyal fan base over the years.

The band mates have been friends since early childhood.

Their camaraderie is played out on stage during their live performances.

Roots, soul, hip hop, folk and dance are just a few of the genres their music incorporates. While their sound is always changing, one thing that remains constant is their energetic vibe. The Boom Booms have fun when they perform which ultimately fills the dance floor.

Their Latin inspired songs stem from the band’s travels to Brazil and adventures along the Amazon River but the six talented musicians also bring an urban edge to their sound.

The Boom Booms have been on a wicked ride since they released Butterfly Man in 2008.

In 2011 their debut album Hot Rum earned them a spot in The Peak Performance Project.

Over the past year their musical journey has taken a huge turn as they endeavour to record a distinct new album.

The process has seen the players re-examine their roles in the band and they are taking their music to the next level.

They have gone from cramming six creative and individual people’s ideas into one song while at the same time working them out part-by-part with master producer Chin Injeti at the helm.
