Boom Booms start of the summer music scene in Golden

Summer kicks start with a bang as Boom Booms come to town.

Kicking Horse Culture has decided to start off their summer with bang .

The Boom Booms will be kicking off the season on Wednesday June 20 at 7 p.m.

Founded by lifelong friends Aaron Ross and Geordie Hart, the six-piece Latin-soul-funk-rock-reggae band makes music that people want to dance to.

Ross and Hart found their passion for Latin music and culture during their journey through Cuba and Mexico when they were 20. As a result, many of their songs (lyrics by Ross) were written and sung in Spanish.

The Vancouver band has drawn their inspiration from musical acts like Damian Marley, Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Paul Simon, the Budos Band and Gregory Isaacs, all of whom’s  essence can be heard in the Boom Booms’ music.

Their first release in 2007, Butterfly Man, spawned the feel-good party anthem When the Night, which made it to number six on the Much More Music countdown in 2008, and was also optioned for an episode of the television series 90210.

The Boom Booms have travelled the globe, playing shows on the streets of Paris and Brussels, and the stage at the infamous Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

They are fresh off a three-month long tour of Brazil, and are making the Spirit Square in Golden one of their first stops back in Canada.

They will also be back in the Columbia Shuswap region later in the summer when they will be taking the stage at the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival.
