Delivering the goods in BC since February of 2001, Whitey has been charging dance floors and festivals across the country since 2005. With an EP, a full length, and a documentary/live DVD in their library, as well as a new full length on the way, this group from Chilliwack/Vancouver BC is well experienced. Their style, incorporating everything from Funk to Ska and Latin to Blues, offers something for everyone in an extremely energetic live show.
ince their humble beginnings in February of 2001, while still in their freshman year of high school, Whitey has always harnessed the honesty and vigor of their beginnings. While the band has evolved stylistically, they have maintained their philosophical vitality; the freedom of expression and unifying principles of music.
At first glance, the diversity within Whiteyï¿½s repertoire can seem unjustified. However, it is the most honest, revealing conveyance of song they can possibly offer. Their purpose as a band has been to channel whatever expression comes at the specific moment in time, while making sure songs are crafted methodically to make people come together, dance, and enjoy themselves with others.
Whitey draws the most diverse crowds possible and has since their inception. This is simply due to the fact that musically, Whitey reaches out to everyone, and conceptually, their shows are nothing but a hot, sweaty, intense celebration of dance, music, art, and life.
