The Fox Rocks Granville Street Concert Series / by Granville Street

Today July 23rd will host The Granville Street Concert on Granville x Georgia featuring BC talent starting at 7pm featuring a band every hour. Hosted by Fox 99.3FM in cooperation with the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, Granville Entertaintment, V.P.D. and City of Vancouver.

Venice Queen: This band has influences from many great bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple, Queens of the Stone Age and Alice in Chains. They also hold the title as Fox Vancouver Seed Winners of 09. This 4-piece band denies to pin themselves to one style so their music is eclectic and very well composed. Homegrown from Richmond and bound with great music style.

Goodbye Beatdown: Drop down a rapper gone vocalist, sprinkle in a DJ who spins rock, reggae and hip hop with a tea spoon of bass keyboarding with a jazz background, a rockin drummer with lightning hands, and a guitarist who has played jazz to heavy metal. Don’t forget to influence that all with famous band Red Hot Chili Peppers. What you are left with is a very interesting sound called “Goodbye Beatdown” that fits the need of the iPod generation. Goodbye Beatdown are also title holders of “Fox Vancouver Seed Winners 09” Vancouver born 5-piece band.

Veer Union: This band held a top 10 rock slot. Not only that they held it for the longest amount of time for any new artist in the industry. Songs are already being used from this band in example the new theme for the 2009 Stanley Cup champions Pittsburg Penguins, WWE for its heavy pummeling song “Seasons”. With its album “Against the Grain” this band has shown its talent, potential and vigor. Vancouver being the birthplace of this band come out and support!

Future dates for more concerts include August 27th and September 10th
