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.
The Boom Booms recently performed in front of thousands of fans at the 2012 TD Vancouver
International Jazz Festival and will take part in Sarah McLachlan’s Voices in the Park concert
on September 15.
