Dope Soda. Gourmet Canadian Ska, Rock, Reggae, Hip Hop & Jazz

Dope Soda formed in late 2011, a fresh concoction of six of the top jazz, rock, and Jamaican-music-inspired musicians from Vancouver Island, with membership in acts such as Current Swell, The Bananafish Dance Orchestra and The Kiltlifters.

Dope Soda 2014

The band is led by a three-piece horn section with roots in the highly-regarded Vancouver Island University Jazz Department, buoyed by a funky rhythm section that serves up sips of bubbling Hammonds and Wurlitzers, shots of distorted guitar, and heavy bass--in your face.

Dope Soda jumps back and forth between reggae jams, punk rock assaults, happy ska romps, and hiphop throwdowns--a thirst quencher for audiences who need good rhymes and good times.

So: tip back a cold one, tip back a bold one, tip back a Dope Soda and uplift your rocking, rolling soul. Skol!
