Compassion Gorilla will be playing Tractorgrease Thursday Sept 28th at 7pm. Tickets are $12 and available Thur - Sunday at 604 858 3814 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Compassion Gorilla has a relentless drive to translate earthy and folkloric sounds into an explosive performance fit for the modern dancefloor, and with the nuance and style to fill a listening room. Their unique brew has been the life of wild dance parties for almost a decade, and while its music defies categorization the band keeps audiences feeling comfortably at home.
The band’s recent travels have taken them to festival stages across western Canada, including highlights at the Victoria International Jazz Festival, Starbelly Jam, Robson Valley Music Festival, Northwest Folk Life, Juan de Fuca Music Festival, Victoria Ska Festival, Bella Coola Music Festival, Campbell Bay Music Festival, and Kispiox Valley Music Festival. They also spent a long stretch of 2013 touring in Mexico, playing over 50 shows in 4 months and coming home with a new album under their belts. “Colibríes en Vuelo” features songs written and arranged on this journey.
"Great storytelling and the international language of music command the stage at today's festivals. Compassion Gorilla will find themselves front and centre again and again. With their eclectic blend of global rhythms and easy charm, they know how to bridge the gap between audience and performer."
