Camaro 67 brings together classic Afrobeat influences (Fela Kuti, Tony Allen), and modern Afrofunk / Groove sounds (Antibalas, Budos Band, The Herbaliser) to produce a propulsive, high-energy, made-in-Vancouver heavy funk experience. This explosive 10-piece instrumental groove-band debuted in 2015, picking up from where Miami Device (BC’s premier Afrobeat orchestra over the past 7 years) left off. As Miami Device, members of Camaro 67 have played jazz, folk and indie music festivals throughout BC, having opened for international dance/urban artists including k-os, Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), Chin Chin and Passion Pit, plus local cohorts in the Vancouver groove scene (Star Captains, Five Alarm Funk, David Ward). Camaro 67 is set to release their debut album on April 9th, and will be touring to support the new record in the summer of 2016.
