Time is drawing near for the 2013 Masque Costume Ball on Feb. 15 that will star The Boom Booms.
“We went through there last winter and played at one of the bars. Golden is great. A few years ago I spent a few weeks there and it is really cool. I am fond of Golden,” he said.
The Boom Booms are a Vancouver-based six-piece rock-pop band who have built a loyal fan base since starting up in 2007.
When they were first starting out they did a tour in Central America in a 1970’s Winnebago.
“Travelling around the world with a distinct purpose that gave us a chance to connect with the locals which is something we love to do,” said Hart.
In 2011, The Boom Booms released their debut album Hot Rum! which helped earn the sextet a spot in the 2011 Peak Performance Project.
“Typically I like to say that it is music that combines all our inspiration from our lives. It is from around the world. It is all put through the filter of what we have grown up with, which I call Boom Boom Music,” said Hart.
As for what people can expect from a show Hart said, “Typically we do a high every show. We are six, twenty-something guys with a lot of energy. Over the years we have fostered our shows playing festivals across B.C. and Alberta. The unique thing about this tour is that we are preparing to record a second full-length album. We have been rehearsing a bunch of new songs and we are going to get to perform them for the first time at some of these shows.”
This is the first time the group has played at a full on masque ball, and they are up for people showing their other side which comes out from behind the masque.
“When people are dressed in outfits, it brings out all of their alter egos and they get to be uninhibited,” he said.
