Mex Pub hosting two bands

Come out and enjoy two great up-and-coming bands, Knuf Funk and the Distributors, at the Mex Pub on Dec. 21, starting at 9:30 p.m.

Knuf Funk is an upbeat dance band that promises a good time with non-stop grooves. Their beats range from pure funk as it was laid down by the masters Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock and Parliament/Funkadelic to straight-up ska.

Also influenced by bands such as Chicago, Knuf Funk incorporates the rock sound into the mix to produce a unique experience. With an ultra-tight rhythm section and powerhouse horns, they are pumped to deliver a memorable and danceable night.

This band features original songs by Courtenay’s own Troy Lucas, along with live performances by Carson Fry on trombone and Lucas on saxophone and flute.

The Distributors feature the collaborative effort of three talented young musicians who have been wowing audiences in Nanaimo. Their originals are a tasty hard-rock cocktail with flavors reminiscent of great classics such as Heart, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd.

This band is going to make you groove and make you sweat; come be a part of their inaugural first year and be sure to track the progress of these rising stars.

Get your tickets in advance by e-mailing sharijakubiec@gmail.com with subject line Tickets or at the door.
