After catching the Pumpkin Tribute set orchestrated by EVeryman on The Pagoda Stage last year, we knew that this was an offer we could not pass up. And so we are incredibly proud to announce that the Hearts of Funk Tour with QDUP & EVERYMAN, a tribute tour for Jon Horvath of Fort Knox Five and Nicholas Alvarado aka Pumpkin, will be coming to Nelson, B.C. on Friday February 24 – with a far-reaching opening set by everyone’s favourite local eclectic, mr.b!

$10 earlybird tickets are available at The Falls Music Lounge now..

•• Qdup & EVeryman ••

The world lost two very influencial musicians recently, men who have laid groundwork and created legacys on so many beautiful levels. We couldn’t be happier to host their tribute tour.

In honor of Pumpkin, Everyman has recently started a society called ‘Little Giant Acorn Foundation for the Arts’, a not-for-profit charity organization established to provide music and arts programs to children who do not have the means to attain them otherwise. A portion of all proceeds from this tour will go to benefit the foundation and keep the Pumpkin legacy alive.

These two are sure to bring a true block party vibe that will run the gamut of dance floor infused breaks, hip hop, funk, house and bass music that the boys are known for championing.

Known for his uncompromising blend of jazz and funk infused house and breaks, Mr B consistently delivers a smooth selection of organic beats geared for the discerning dancefloor. His sets are focused on bringing people together in positive ways through music. This comes through in his seamless mixing of dusty classics with the future sounds of glitch and bass heavy favorites. With over a decade of experience that has included weekly residencies in Calgary and Victoria, and numerous appearances at Shambhala and Soundwave, Mr. B’s unique sound is certainly west coast yet distinctly his own.
