LIVE Electro Swing Band @ the Railyard! - Dress in your best Swing Era outfits and experience the hottest SWING Music!

The Lil’Mishka Electro Swing Band is a 21st century Canadian anomaly. It is an eccentric mix of different styles ranging from Swing, Jazz, Electro, and even Hip Hop for good measure. The band has been working hard at performing shows with the phenomenally talented Katherine Grefner (main vocals), the snazzy flair of Mike WT Allen (lead saxophone), bumpin electronic beats of dj elixir (dj) and the caffeine fueled keys and effects of Edward Ward (keys, producer)

Thom Thumb
- Vancouver

ThomThumb has been well connected with the Vancouver Rave scene since the mid 90's as well as very musically inclined from the age of 4. Utilizing such instruments as piano, guitar, sax and drums, he started writing and composing music at the age of 7.

His affinity for electronic music and love for the scene really started to come through when he first hit the decks in 2000.

A few years ago after a long break, he reconnected with the lead organizers for the Festivus Music Festival which rekindled his love affair with house music and he has been going hard, and non stop since then.

2018 has been his best year yet, playing festivals all over the BC area. He remains an active player with many local all stars in the Vancouver House Music scene.

Thumb also enjoys keeping his involvement with places like The Anza Club and Beatginnings and has been playing a once a month residency at “Are you MIA’s” Deep Down Inside. Most recently bringing back the infamous “Farm” parties from the 90’s Vancouver Rave Scene and breathing new life into and old favourite in a reincarnation that has been dubbed Merry Masquerade Music Festival.

DJ Jason Brauer
GoodMusicLessHassle / Technetium

Jason Brauer lives for making people dance, and telling a story through his music. From house to techno and everything in between, mixing them together in a different way, and pushing the boundaries of each genre. He’s played Burning Man many times,
the Vancouver club circuit, and numerous raves and parties locally and around the world. From the days of searching for the elusive 12” mix on vinyl, to layering a 4 hour techno set in Traktor , djing will always be an important part of his life. Inspired by the progressive house sounds of Sasha and John Digweed, he quickly found his music niche. To Jason, good music is good music, and enjoys playing it for anyone who will listen.
