The British Columbians will be bringing their own style of Rock and Roll to the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Saturday Dec. 8.

The group released their sophomore album in 2011, Made For Darker Things, to critical acclaim.

The follow-up to their 2009 self-titled debut combined eight tracks which were brimming with soulful, old-school blues influences, while still maintaining a modern day rock n’ roll sound.

The band’s eclectic brand of folk, blues, and southern rock n’ roll, is mixed with a tireless work ethic and a grassroots approach to making music.

In 2009, the British Columbians were named “Canada’s Best Undiscovered Band” in the Zune Concert Series Competition which was voted on by an industry panel including representatives from Universal Music, Last Gang Records, Dine Alone, Roadrunner Records, and Canadian radio veteran Alan Cross.

The British Columbians have enjoyed successful cross-country tours and select dates on renowned festivals including NXNE and Virgin Festival.

During the tour dates they have shared the stage with the likes of Broken Social Scene, Our Lady Peace, K-OS, Plants & Animals, Band of Skulls, Arkells and Grady, to name a few.
