The Boom BoomsThe Boom Booms are a celebrated Canadian band from Vancouver, BC. They blend storytelling and dance music with draws on funk, soul and latin styles. The Boom Booms have spent the last decade touring the world and playing festivals (Pemberton, Squamish Live, Toronto Jazz Fest and more).
Their debut album ‘Hot Rum’, written on their inaugural tour from Vancouver to Panama, garnered a dedicated fan base spanning continents and generations. Their sophomore album ‘Love is Overdue’ is produced by Grammy-award winner Chin Injeti, and draws on more soulful influences. The band spent three months in Brazil shooting their socially charged documentary, “Boom Boom Brazil”. They were winners of BC’s prestigious Peak Performance Project (100.5 FM) and The Georgia Straight readers voted The Boom Booms as Best Unsigned Band in Vancouver five times. In 2015 the band sold out Vancouver’s renowned concert venue, The Commodore Ballroom. The Boom Booms released their third album, A Million Miles, in September 2017. They held their album release show at The Vogue Theatre.
