JUICE. On The Breakwater Barge 5PM June 23 #yyjmusic @gvicharbour

Greater Victoria Harbour Authority presents The Breakwater Barge.
Join us Friday June 23rd from 5PM to 9:30PM for JUICE. (dj set) for funk filled dance party.

Breakwater Barge - PlayInVictoria.netFrom the ever-burgeoning club scene of BC’s hidden gem, Victoria, comes Ryan “Juice” Walton. Juice has built a small empire being the go-to party starter of the island and his efforts have landed him gigs from Shambhala with Smalltown DJs to sharing the stage with acts like Bun B, Mat the Alien, The Funk Hunters, Skratch Bastid, & A Tribe Called Red.

Juice won’t be pigeonholed into any genres though. You can catch him rocking a pool party, playing funk, soul & disco late night, or at the club bangin’ rap or late night bass to the wee hours. His rep is growing just as fast as the dancefloors in front of him, definitely a Canadian DJ to keep your eyes on moving forward. He’s not the Jack of all trades, he’s the Juice of all trades.

Local beer from Phillips Brewing & Malting Co., Driftwood Brewery & Hoyne Brewing Company. Cider from Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse and wine from the Artisan Wine Shop AWS. Food will also be on site from The Kraken by The Breakwater, Deadbeetz Food Truck, Songhees Seafood & Steam and Thrifty Foods Smile Truck.

The Breakwater Barge opens at 5PM. $2 cash admission with partial proceeds to James Bay New Horizons Society

Kids welcome. No pets or smoking on the barge.

Kid Ink - Upstairs CabaretSurge events & Upstairs Cabaret present:

Kid Ink w/ special guests

TICKETS ON SALE – & Lyle’s Place

Date/Time: June 28th, 9:00 pm Doors.

Kid Ink cruises past all boundaries. The Los Angeles rapper, producer, and performer can seamlessly slip from an irresistible hook into an impeccable verse, effortlessly bobbing and weaving between the club and the streets. There’s absolutely nobody quite like the tattooed from head-to-toe impresario, and that’s the first thing you’ll notice when you take his full-length debut, My Own Lane [Tha Alumni Music Group/88 Classic/RCA Records], for a spin.

Grinding as a producer since the age of 16, he uncovered this creative highway by perfecting a personal style behind the board first. His production collaborations include everybody from Sean “Diddy” Combs, Sean Kingston, Nipsey Hu$$le, and more. That experience in the studio set the stage for him to become the versatile and vibrant force he is today.

The Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival
Ship Point, Victoria
2:00PM – 10:00 PM

Vancouver reggae legends ROOTS ROUNDUP finally take our Main Stage at Ship Point to help close out another year of super-fine music and art. The music of the longtime champions of west coast reggae was instrumental in the formation of both the Victoria Ska & Reggae Society and Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival.

Their sunny, rootys riddims helped inspire our Festival founder and head, revealing the musical community at large and opening the door for new blood into the scene. It’s an honour to have them at the festival, dropping their tunes and getting all the Massive dancing.

Victoria’s Ska Fest TODAY: Booker T. and more #yyjmusic @Victoriaskafest

Victoria Ska & Reggae Festival is proud to host the legend, the titan of American soul and R&B, BOOKER T. JONES. For over half a century, Jones has been leaving his mark on American music, through his own work and collaborations with some of musics biggest and most diverse names like The Roots, Jim James and Gary Clark Jr, to name just a few. His song “Green Onions” has been a popular staple for years and is the only instrumental song included on Rolling Stone Magazine’s “500 Greatest Songs of All Time.” After his unforgettable performance at Alix Goolden last year, we thought it was only fitting to bring this legend back, this time on our signature stage, in front of the majesty of the Inner Harbour sunset.

Providing direct to the legend of American music will be two titans of Jamaican music, Keith & Tex. The golden-voiced innovators of rocksteady started their journey over half a century ago and are still traveling and singing, delighting audiences around the globe with their incredible harmonies. Songs like “Stop That Train,” “Don’t Look Back” and “Tonight” remain some of reggae’s most enduring classics, instantly recognizable and always welcome.


Joining Mr. Jones and Keith & Tex on this very special night is Victoria’s own jazzy funksters, the New Groovement. The powerfully fun 11-piece is custom built to get heads nodding and rumps shaking. Their powerful horns will start the night off right, helping energize the crowd for an unforgettable evening.
