The Boom Booms are a celebrated Canadian band from Vancouver, BC. They blend storytelling and dance music with draws on funk, soul, latin and rock styles. The Boom Booms have spent the last decade touring the world and playing festivals (Pemberton, Squamish Live, Toronto Jazz Fest and more). Their debut album “Hot Rum”, written on their inaugural tour from Vancouver to Panama, blends Latin, folk, funk, reggae and rock. This album garnered a dedicated fan base spanning continents and generations. Their sophomore album “Love Is Overdue” was produced by Grammy-award winner, Chin Injeti, drawing on more soulful influences. The Boom Booms live show is highly energetic, honest and original. They spent three months in Brazil, shooting and funding their socially charged documentary, “Boom Boom Brazil”. They were awarded $75,000 in BC’s prestigious Peak Performance Project and The Georgia Straight readers voted them Best Unsigned Band in Vancouver five times. The Boom Booms released their third album, A Million Miles, in September 2017. The group consists of brothers Aaron Ross (lead vocals) and Sean Ross (keys), Tom Van Deursen (guitar), Geordie Hart (bass), and Theo Vincent (drums).
