About Vancouver Groove Orchestra

The Vancouver Groove Orchestra is an exciting showband comprised of an expanding pool of remarkable musicians, including several who lead their own musical groups in Vancouver and surrounding areas. Whether sitting in for a short time or with us from the beginning of the band’s story, each VGO member has supported the band’s mandate to make great music and give back to the community.

About Queer as Funk

It started, like most good ideas, over beer and song. A few short years later, Queer as Funk is renowned for its tight rhythm section, hot horns, and killer vocals, bringing together the city’s best musicians in an explosive, high-energy dance band. There's nothing this tight-knit band loves more than performing together, and that love is palpable to audiences everywhere.

"There's nowt so queer as folk", or so the old English adage goes. Queer As Funk believes in celebrating differences, and what better way than with a big ol' dance party?
