Animal nation returning to the Wav

Perhaps you got to see Animal Nation play at Vancouver Island MusicFest or Rhythm on the Rock this summer.

They have created quite a fan base in the Comox Valley and can’t wait to rock the Waverley. Animal Nation performs Nov. 23 at the Wave.

Pushing the edges of hip-hop, this band captured the attention of Valley audiences at MusicFest and Rhythm on the Rock.

Warming up the dance floor is our very own JPrime.

Animal Nation is from Whistler. They combine harmonicas, guitars, drum machines, and Bacon & Eggs with turntables, sampling, banjos, and hilarity to create a hip-hop show unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

Most recently Animal Nation was nominated for a Western Canadian Music Award for Best Hip-Hop Album for its recently released Basement Tapes vol.1.

“Animal Nation should be prescribed by physicians as an oratory cure-all for many of the ailments which plague the human condition, including, but not limited to, depression, heartache, ennui and the blahs. I defy anyone to listen and not feel happy.” — Kent Osborne, Adventure Time, SpongeBob Squarepants writer.
