The Boom Booms
The Boom Booms are a Vancouver-based six-piece rock-pop band. Since their 2007 launch, The Boom Booms have built a loyal fanbase that stretches across generations. The video for their feel-good party anthem, “When the Night”, reached #6 on the Much More Music chart in 2008 and was optioned for an episode of 90210. “Delivered”, a surreal banjo ballad that conjures up images of a jungle river baptism, garnered an award for Best Roots Song at the Just Plain Folks Music Awards in Nashville. In 2011, The Boom Booms released their debut album ¡Hot Rum! This album, along with their strong live performance and incredible stage presence, earned the sextet a spot in the 2011 Peak Performance Project, BC’s most prestigious contest for emerging musicians. They went on to win second place and picked up a cash prize of $75,000. Since then, The Boom Booms have wrapped up a successful tour of Brazil, which included sold out performances in both Rio de Janeiro and Manaus, playing for one thousand people in the heart of the Amazon. While on tour, the band fell in love with the Brazilian culture, music and people. They created a series of videos to raise awareness for the Belo Monte Dam in the Amazon Rainforest that is destroying and displacing a huge number of locals and causing an ecological disaster.
Erica Dee is an artistic paradigm of our age. Born in the digital realm, she manages to combine old world Spirit with new world Soul, seamlessly mixing, singing, rapping and djing into a linear stream. An electro vaudevillian gypsy, she has captivated audiences from B.C. to Brazil and lives to travel, learn and share her many gifts with the world.
The daughter of jazz musicians, as a teen into her early 20’s Erica was heavily involved in Canada's burgeoning west coast electronic music scene, opening for Lyrics Born, Lil Kim, & Collie Buds, and writing and recording with Bassnectar & DJ Numark (Jurassic 5). This led to an opportunity to be mentored by the world famous Numark, who invited Erica to Los Angeles in 2009 to work in his studio.
Erica DJed & performed alongside Chali 2na, Damien Marley & Quest Love during the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver BC at The First Nations Youth Conference. Later on in 2010 Erica joined rapper Pigeon John and DJ SHADOW for the nation wide Shadowsphere Tour.
Now a true powerhouse in both the studio and on stage, Erica has continued to refine her recording and live performance prowess; recently appearing with Mr. Lif and Thievery Corporation and on tracks with DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill as well as Dub step maestro Benga.
Erica’s sonic adventurism knows no boundaries. From Hip Hop to House, Electro, Mash-Up, Top 40 Remixes, RnB or Dubstep, Miss Dee flexes her versatility in both style and skill effortlessly. Whether at a 15,000 capacity festival or an intimate Hollywood lounge, as a DJ, Singer or Rapper, Erica Dee entertains and connects with her audience in a cosmic exchange of Love energetics and Light.
