Cortes Island's dance band come to the Wav

Nothing makes the dance floor move like ska music does, and this is the driving theme behind Back Eddy and the Procrastinators’ music.

This seven-piece band comes from Cortes Island, where knowing how to dance is a survival skill. Grinding tunes with accents of trumpet and trombone makes an audience wanna bump and strump; Back Eddy make the club get krunk!

Winners of the decennial Battle of the Bands Cortes Island, and the freshest new group on the rock, these guys play Jan. 19 at the Waverley Hotel in Cumberland.

They are focusing hard on building their repertoire, and are true to their genre of serious business ska. This band made many valley friends at last summer's Rhythm on the Rock and this is certainly gonna be a party, island style.

Tickets for the Jan. 19 gig are available at Bop City, the Waverley or by phoning 250-336-8322. Doors at 9:30 p.m.
