Finally, the headlining act of this years ska-fest FISHBONE came on stage with such presence and soul that they got every able bodied person in the venue skanking for 2 hrs straight with one of the most amazing performances that the SKA-Fest has ever witnessed. At the end of the night they brought the house back to earth with some of the most soulful moving reggae gospel you could ever hear!!!! From partying with the Aggrolites till 6 in the morning to meeting some of our favourite musicians and making 100s of new friends and fans, to meeting the members of FISHBONE in person and being so inspired by the heart,mind,body, and soul that unites ppl and knocks down barriers, tears down walls, opens minds, and brings ppl together all in the name of LOVE FOR SKA MUSIC!

Tour so Far
Well campers, the Brave New Waves tour is going swimmingly!!
Tonight, here we are in Banff, Alberta @ the SameSun Hostel. Our beautiful host Lenny and the rest of the staff here are being so awesome and accommodating.. Wonderful room, great dinner. Beautiful place indeed. The room we're performing in tonight already has more than half capacity with stoked locals and travelers! Should be an exciting night too as this show is the very first with dropping the electronic beats and fx on the snare and vocals!
Beginning on Thursday night though, the Brave New Waves tour began @ Malone's on West Pender. Incredible openers the Natural Flavas got the crowd super stoked with their tight harmonies and unreal percussion and keyboards.. Brave New Waves set was a killer hour and 15 minutes. A great start to this long ride of ours!
Friday morning, the long road proved snowy and high in the alpine as we made route to Kelowna. Our aussie merch manager Dan got his first taste of the Canadian phenomenon of a blizzard! But the 'brown wing' tour van held steady and safely we arrived.. And an incredible venue it was. So welcoming the SameSun Hostel was, so happy to have performed to such amazing people. thanx so much to Jerel and Nate for hosting us so warmly for sure..
Well, it's off to get going on the show this evening.. Stay posted. Hopefully we'll see you along the way..
