Funk Night- Brass Camel (Vancouver) + Mecca of Stank

Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street/ Byward Market, Ottawa, Ont.

Brass Camel is a unique Vancouver-based rock group who recently released their debut album, mixed by multiple Juno-winner Ben Kaplan. Made up of five experienced young musicians, their collective accomplishments include performing at New York's Apollo Theater, jamming with guitar icon Les Paul, racking up countless studio sessions and covering hundreds of thousands of miles on the road before coming together. Brass Camel's singular sound mashes together the diverse influences of prog, funk, blues rock and fusion then ties them together with the kind of neat bow only attained by five musicians who are gunning for glory on the same frequency. The band's musicianship, songwriter and work ethic have led to endorsements from such companies as Sabian, Rotosound UK and Los Cabos. After a string of consecutive sell-out shows in Vancouver, the Camel embarked on their first national tour of Canada, a successful 13,500km undertaking which sets the stage for the band to tour extensively in the months and years to come
