Description

         "I enjoy watching The Racket perform their music live. They are an amazing band, with wonderful musicianship, great vocalist and really cool tunes. One of the most promising young bands from BC. For sure their future is bright." -  Alex Cuba, grammy award winning artist 

          The Racket has gained a substantial following throughout BC’s North West and have played all over the rest of the province. Raised in the rich festival scene of Northern BC, they know damn well how to spark energy and get a dance floor (or dirt field) grooving, as well as satisfying more intimate settings with an acoustic set. The trio plays with techniques and sounds, mixing styles and coming up with original material. From their live performance, you can expect tight n’ funky grooves, slow n’ steady blues, and the driving force of stomp-folk, all the while maintaining a rock vibe. With a lot of songs revolving around social change, their goal is to set the new age to a heavy downbeat.  Everything these boys do is topped off with a large dose of originality.

          In present day, the trio is residing in Vancouver, British Columbia. They are playing shows every month in and around the Vancouver area. They recorded their first full length album at Old Growth Studios on Salt Spring Island. The album will be available by September!   So keep an eye and an ear out for "The Racket"...
