SkiiTour is a DJ/production/party rockin' duo hailing from the mountain resort town of Whistler.

As men they couldn't be more different.

Tim Livingstone is a proud ginger Canadian and a strict vegetarian when he's sober. Then there is Dave (Canosis) Rollie, an afro-sporting New Zealander, who once devoured 96 chicken wings in one sitting.

However, musically they're totally on the same page. Collaborating since 2010 (originally under the moniker Livingstone & Canosis), they have had multiple No. 1 releases on Juno with Riddim Fruit Records (UK), Booty Fruit (UK) and ReSoul Records (Canada).

Their tracks have been featured on music blogs around the world (including Ghetto Funk & Free Breaks Blog) and they are showing up on mixtapes from such artists as JFB, Slynk, & The Funk Hunters. Radio stations from NZ to the UK have been giving their songs airplay.

With special guest Sk'ian Ian. Sk'ian is one of the North Island's best, known for his funky style, wild hair and amazing energy behind the decks, which has given him quite the following.

Sk'ian, in his seven-year career behind the tables, has been making dance floors bounce every step of the way. He has packed shows up and down the island. Definitely a DJ you don't want to miss.

The show happens Friday, Dec. 13. Tickets are at Bop City, the Waverley or by phoning 250-336-8322.
