About the event
Brass Camel is an independent Vancouver-based rock (art/blues/prog variety) group which recently released a debut album mixed by multiple Juno-winner Ben Kaplan (Mother Mother, Biffy Clyro). In 2021 Big Sugar's Gordie Johnson named Brass Camel his favourite Canadian band.
Born in early 2018, the group is the brainchild of Daniel James, who began touring at age 11 and has performed with Les Paul and at NYC's Apollo Theater. Since the release of their debut the group has been on a hot-streak of packed Vancouver shows and has shared the stage with groups such as Big Sugar, Songhoy Blues, Hey Ocean in such venues as the Commodore Ballroom and Rickshaw Theatre. Technical junkies, blues lovers, and funk groovers can all find common ground as they ride the rocking sounds of the Camel. The group released their debut LP in September of 2022 and will be seeking relentlessly expand their audience in 2023.
"I'm a big Brass Camel believer right now and the fact that they're from Canada...to me, I mean that's just a bonus. Man, they're good worldwide so I've gotta say that's probably my favourite dude in Canada right now."-Gordie Johnson, Big Sugar/Grady
