The Leg-Up Program is a collaboration of Victoria artists.
Formed in late 2013 to fill-in for a local block party, The Leg-Up Program tore the roof off with their hip hop funk rock soul orchestra and musical collective with approximately 17+ members who contribute to their huge sound. Made up of members from many other local bands, the collective brings a large and eclectic variety of sound to the sonic palette. Be ready to dance!
Originating in Victoria, BC, the awesome 17-piece collective of funk, soul, hip hop, r&b musicians that make up The Leg-Up Program are a force to be reckoned with! At times, they are a soul band with raspy lead vocals and beautifully sculpted harmonies; at times, they are a funk band with wild horn lines and groovy bass and drums; at times they are a hip hop group with catchy hooks and solid beats; and at times, they are sweet and sultry, keeping the audience fully engaged with the slowest of ballads. Amongst it all, is a group of people who simply love to make music and inspire others to get up and dance and become a part of all the fun! Each one is a talented musician and their original material stays with you like any hit song. It's safe to say, this band has it all. This instant party band works hard and it shows.
