Phonosonics is Victoria BC's premiere Rocksteady/Roots-Reggae massive. With their soulful harmonies, their blazing horns and their old-school grooves, the band has dazzled audiences across BC, bringing an authentic interpretation of 1960's and 1970's ska, rocksteady and reggae. Phonosonics is a fun-filled act combining the Rocksteady Soul of the old school with a modern touch and live danceability. Phonosonics invite you to free your behind, so your mind can follow!
LIVE FROM THE SWAMP! @ The Swamp
Sat. August 21st 2:30pm - 8pm
On Saturday, August 21 enjoy a mix of reggae, rocksteady, hip hop, and funk with Def3, Caleb Hart & The Royal Youths, Phonosonics and Ollie Happyness . All the performers that are on this Saturday line up have been part of our family for a long time but they all have evolved with new material and working with fresh artists.
We're especially excited to welcome back Def3 who is not only one of the most talented hip hop artists in Canada but he's also one of the most talented wild style/mural artists. His art work adorns our live stream sets and our HQ. He'll have a new creation for us to feast our eyes on too. In June of 2021 Def3's most recent album "Weddings and Funerals" w/Late Night Radio recently reached #1 on the charts in Canada on Apple ITunes. This was a huge accomplishment considering other world famous artists such as J. Cole, Lloyd Banks and DMX were 2nd to 5th behind his album.
