ska riddims, reggae grooves, ferocious punk energy...

Formed in 1994 in Whistler BC by The Vogler brothers, The Hounds of Buskerville have kept their original ska flame alive through several versions of the band. Recently Stephen Vogler re-joined The Hounds and together with long time members Jay-Oh!, Kostaki and Mister Cakes have evolved (or devolved) back into the original and long-standing version of the band. In their 20 years together The Hounds of Buskerville have played and toured to enthusiastic crowds all over western Canada and have played with bands such as Men at Work, The Wailers, Fishbone, The Planet Smashers, DOA, The Slackers and many, many more...

The Hounds of Buskerville bring years of experience to their original ska sound: a fine blend of ska, reggae, a bit of dancehall and punk that gets under your skin and maximizes - yes maximizes! - your desire to dance.

The A.D.D and friends jam session

The Tuesday night A.D.D jam sessions are a great opportunity to meet, jam with, or listen to musicians of all levels and abilities. More importantly, it provides a venue where beginners and musician of all levels can hang out with, and get a chance to play with some of the coast’s finest talent.

There is no cover charge and all musicians are welcome.

In addition, A.D.D will be inviting a surprise guest musician to sit in with them for their opening and closing sets, so even if you don’t play an instrument, come on down and hear some of the amazing talent this beautiful coast has to offer!

Doors open at 4:30pm • Jam from 7:30-11pm

"The A.D.D power trio was formed in Sechelt in 2014 by members Alex Rolland (guitar and vocals), Dylan Brackett (drums and percussion) and Dylan Clark (bass and funky hat). They got their name based on the 1st initials of their first names and while the namesake implies a lack of focus, this band has no problem focusing on their love of guitar-based blues, roots and classic rock favourites spanning the last 4 decades. Get ready to hear intense, heartfelt renditions of songs from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Hendrix, ZZ-Top, The Allman Brothers, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Delbert McClinton and their popular Santana set."

“A.D.D is clearly O.C.D about their music”
