Camaro 67 brings together classic Afrobeat influences (Fela Kuti, Tony Allen), and modern Afrofunk / Groove sounds (Antibalas, Budos Band, The Herbaliser) to produce a propulsive, high-energy, made-in-Vancouver heavy-funk experience. This explosive 10-piece instrumental groove-band debuted in 2015, picking up from where Miami Device (BC’s premier Afrobeat orchestra over the past 7 years) left off. As Miami Device, members of Camaro 67 have played jazz, folk and indie music festivals throughout BC, having opened for international dance/urban artists including k-os, Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), Chin Chin and Passion Pit, plus local cohorts in the Vancouver groove scene (Star Captains, Five Alarm Funk, David Ward).

 

“Top fuel Afrobeat a la Antibalas & Budos, blown and cammed for max HP (heavy percussion). Smooth and meaty as drag slicks. It’s one bitchin’ Camaro from Vancouver. For the driver, the double-naught spy, the night crawler – this debut is your soundtrack; a mean ten-piece that’s track-ready. Check ‘Bitchin’ Camaro’ ‘The Road’, ‘Funkariffic’ and ‘Sink It’. Classic cover for Burn Rubber, Not Your Soul. Love It!”  Cal Koat, Host, World Beat Canada, Roundhouse Radio

 

“Vancouver’s groove music scene is putting out solid bands these days … a packed house enjoyed the debut of Camaro 67 – seeing them live is where it’s at!” -Dane Roberts, Artistic Director, BC Ska Society
