We are thrilled to announce that LeftCoast will be joining us again this year to perform on the main stage!
LeftCoast is a five piece Vancouver based band. We have an eclectic style blending funk, soul, jazz and pop. With a lifetime of professional music experience between them, the five members of LeftCoast have seasoned backgrounds in delivering a connoisseur’s blend of sonic harmonious magic. Administering a funky mix of analogue keyboard loops, rich and soulful vocals, bass wizardry, brazen sax licks and fresh drum beats, LeftCoast brings a youthful, yet old school funk image and energy to every performance. This collection of pros channel the grooves of Chaka Khan, Joss Stone, Roy Ayers, Bill Withers and the like, as well as giving a healthy nod to the eras of cool jazz and bossa nova. Beyond the covers, LeftCoast weaves their own original works of funk and soul, sure to please any discerning ear and refresh the senses.
