The Boom Booms are an Indie Soul band from Vancouver, BC made up of brothers, childhood friends and family ties. The Boom Booms love and live for the road. They’ve busked across Europe, performed in the Brazilian Amazon and Rio’s famous ‘Casa Rosa’, and toured Mexico, Central America, and the US.
Influenced by travel, the Boom Booms released their Latin-laced debut album Hot Rum (2011). Their sophomore effort, ‘Love Is Overdue’ (2014), was produced by Grammy Award winner Chin Injeti and draws more on childhood influences such as Bill Withers and Al Green.
“Some of the tightest, smoothest, sexiest soul and funk… comes courtesy of six guys who all grew up within a few blocks of each other on Vancouver’s East Side.” ~ The Georgia Straight
