Saturday Nov.12th join the Victoria BC Ska Society for our All Ages Punk Ska line up celebrating over 20 years of Belvedere. Belvedere is on the road promoting their new album “The Revenge Of The Fifth”.

Be ready for a night of jam packed performances including the sweet ska/reggae of Victoria's Sweetleaf; local high energy punks Fableway and Vancouver's The Brass Action (they call it brasspunk) - ska-punk with a dash of rockabilly and reggae.

The Who's Tommy@ The Queens
After the success of the three week musical in Sooke with sell out shows and the music preview at Lucky Bar in Victoria The Who's Tommy is hitting Nanimo! This show features a full cast of talented singers performing the songs accompanied by a solid line up of musicians directed by Stephen J Horak (RADco, The Laundronauts) Tapping into the Broadway production for their baseline stage performance, musical director Stephen J. Horak deviates from the Broadway score in order to make this show as loud and visceral as possible. Re-invigorating the original 1969 version of The Who’s TOMMY, he sets out to support a version of this show that incorporates all the volume and rock intensity of the Who’s live performances of the late 60’s, early 70’s. TOMMY is the story of a traumatized child’s coming of age, his parent’s attempts to free him of his emotional handicap, and his subsequent release, triumph, and rejection comes entirely through the texts of the songs, mostly composed by Townshend with contributions from bassist John Entwhistle and drummer Keith Moon and an appropriation from American blues musician, Sonny Boy Williamson. Arguably one of the most important rock albums of all time, TOMMY propelled The Who to super-stardom and originated the idea of “rock opera”. While it was a staple part of The Who’s live sets shortly after the album’s release in 1969, they have rarely performed it in its entirety since 1970. A must see for all Who fans!!... more...

Horak as Musical Director. Stephen performs in local bands The Laundronauts and RADco, and this is his second show with SHP.

The performance will feature the twenty-one original album songs plus selections from the musical sung by the Sooke Harbour Players cast members.

As his life meanders on in post World War II England, he suffers abuse from sadistic relatives and neighbors. Tommy's life is saved, however, when he falls in love with pinball. He becomes such an expert at the game that he rises to the stature of an international superstar and inspires youth around the world."

The Victoria BC Ska Society is proud to present hailing from NYC, The Casualties. The Casualties members had the primary aim to revive the "golden era" of street punk, embodied by bands such as The Exploited, Charged, GBH, and Discharge, who's popularity was believed to have wained by 1985. The Casualties have continued to produce high-energy recordings and they have played in and headlined many US and international tours (e.g., Europe, Japan, and Mexico). The Casualties were founded 1990 in New York by vocalist Colin (until 1994) and Jorge Hank (guitar), Mark (bass) and Yureesh (drums). Jorge Herrera from Ecuador is the only constant member of the band. The first demo tape is soon taken up and followed by the first single “40 Oz. Casualty”. It was released in it 1991. None of them thought about seriously making music, then: “At first, most of them drank a lot and made a lot of trouble, and they played music just for fun,” explained Rick. Accordingly, the lineup changes quite often. The street punks regarded themselves as representatives of the Working-Class-Doctrine of the Punk Rock and due to their attitude to hard work it took them a while to produce their first LP. Guitarist Jake Kolatis – as he himself admitted – could not play the guitar then. He enters in 1993 and his first public appearance was on the EP “A Fuckin’ Way of Life” which was released the following year. Drummer Meggers, whose real name is Marc Eggers, joined the band in 1995,... more...
