HILLSIDE HOOLIGANS & BURNT (Nev's Birthday Bash) @ Lucky Bar
Burnt is back after impressing audiences at Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest in 2017. They are family to us and we are excited to have them back in Victoria. If you haven't heard their music, do yourself a favour and check out one of their albums that offers a mixture of reggae, ska, hip hop, and other fusions of all three.
Hillside Hooligans is reeling after a nearly flawless performance at Victoria Ska & Reggae Fest XIX opening for Fortunate Youth, WST Ska Orchestra and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. When you put both of these bands together on the same bill back to back you are in to experience something special.
