The Boom Booms bring their indie-soul music to Kelowna

The Vancouver based band grew up as brothers and will perform Jan. 25

Vancouver band, The Boom Booms, blend storytelling with music that makes fans want to get up and dance.

They’ve been making music together for 10 years, but have known eachother much longer. Front-man Aaron Ross attended pre-school with bassist, Geordie Hart and his Ross’ brother plays the keyboards.

The Vancouver-based band grew up as brothers and that bond is something that makes the band so special for him.

“It’s still exciting to make music with people who you like and play for people. Playing live music with people who are very close to you and who are old friends is still super exciting,” said Ross. “Anyone that spends that much time together develops inside jokes and you almost have your own language so it’s fun to exist in that little timeless world. I still get excited to get up and tour in the van.”

The band has never lost their love of touring, a regular on festival line-ups. They try to play shows in small towns to make sure that everyone can let loose for a night and listen to live music.

“Anytime we go to a small town there’s a different kind of appreciation, they don’t get a lot of bands coming in so the crowd is just happy to have you come through,” said Ross.

The unsigned band has been slow to put out a new album since their latest release in 2017, A Million Miles but Ross says they are taking their time because they want to cultivate and create something unique.

“We have been relatively slow when making albums because we are an independent band and it costs a lot and it takes a lot of time. This record is still working for us,” said Ross.

The Boom Booms will perform in Kelowna Jan. 25 at the Rotary Center for the Arts, tickets are available at
