Mindil Beach Market comes to Golden

The Sunshine Coast band, that mixes elements of funk, hip-hop, and reggae with rock and roll, will be at the Rockwater on April 11.

The Mindil Beach Market will be live at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on April 11.

Whether it’s with their adaptable sound, or their passionate causes, Sunshine Coast band Mindil Beach Markets has the ability to captivate and engage their audience.

Their music is laced with elements of funk, hip-hop, and reggae, along with a true passion for rock and roll. They will be playing at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on April 11.

The band first captured listeners with the release of their self-titled debut album in October of 2010. The band toured the album independently from Vancouver to San Diego, playing 19 shows and handing out 10,000 free copies along the way.

The accompanying live show drew the attention of the festival organizers across the province. To day, Mindil Beach has rocked crowds at festival like Rifflandia, Live at Squamish, The Big Time Out, Victoria Ska Fest, and Tall Tree Festival.

They hit the stage with major acts such as Nazareth, Bedouin Soundclash, and Del and the Funky Homosapien.

On their latest record, It Might Take Long, Mindil Beach Markets have refined and beefed up their sound. Golden is one stop on their cross-Canada tour promoting the album.

The band’s passion for music goes hand in hand with their passion for the environment. In 2011 they founded The Jellyfish Project, an environmental initiative targeted at B.C. high school students to spark conversation about ocean sustainability.

The band mixes live performances with presentations about the declining health of the world’s oceans, discussing topics like overfishing, marine plastics, and sustainable solutions.

In the 2011/2012 school year, they presented to more than 10 high schools in B.C.
