For a band with a complex list of influences, Mindil Beach (Saturday, Nov. 15 at the Waverley) is simply named after a coastline in Darwin, Australia.

Over the past six years, their ability to adapt has enabled them to play with acts ranging from Nazareth to Bedouin Soundclash to Del the Funky Homosapien. Since the release of their sophomore record, It Might Take Long (2013), Mindil Beach have been persistently touring the Canadian bar, festival and school circuits. Local success of the album’s lead single, Smoking Gun, served as a springboard for national exposure. To date, they’ve rocked crowds at festivals like Rifflandia and Squamish Valley Music Festival, and have appeared on CTV’s Canada AM and Global TV.

The band’s passion for music goes hand in hand with their passion for the environment. In 2011, the boys founded The Jellyfish Project, an environmental initiative targeting Canadian high school and middle school students to generate awareness about ocean sustainability, climate change and environmental stewardship. The program has been presented in more than 90 schools to over 45,000 students, and has partnered with the Vancouver Aquarium and the David Suzuki Foundation.

They’ve been called “a group that can fly the flag for Canadian rock overseas” and they strive to do so. Mindil Beach toured their latest single, Love Like Mine, around western Canada in October and will be heading back across the country in April in support of a new EP.

The Waverley is planning a special Tapas style menu pairing Hoyne’s craft beers with select specialties from their popular cuisine.

This special beer tasting with menu samples starts at 8 p.m.

Tickets for the show are $15 advance/$20 door and available at Bop City, the Waverley, by phone 250-336-8322 or online at cumberlandvillageworks.com.

Doors at 9:30 p.m.
