Mamagaroove heading for Discovery Coast festival

The Discovery Coast Music Festival may be six months away, but the organizing committee is already busy planning for the 2012 event set for July 20 to 22, says director Susan O’Neill.

“Northern B.C. artists Mamagaroove are set to bring a special blend of music and theatrical intensity to our stage,” O’Neill says.

“The Groove’s” musical style ranges from Latin/flamenco-based rock, to reggae, funk, folk, world beat, and even metal.

Ethereal lead vocals and harmonies merge with symphonic guitar riffs, blistering rhythms, flawlessly smooth fretless bass, and a wild, rich, saxophone.

Their songs express a strong connection to working people and to raising families. “They sing of the need for change, and of hope for a better way of life, as they themselves strive toward sustainability on their Dunster acreage,” O’Neill says. “What better way to influence others than to be the change we want to see in the world?”
