If you need a dancer friendly band that will play familiar music for your event, wedding, party, pub, grand opening, booze cruise or whatever give us a call. For an idea of what you can expect musically see our "Set List" page.
We also have a 3 piece jazz and soul band playing a century's worth of classics from Ray Charles and Willie Nelson to Norah Jones and Amy Winehouse.
Geoff has also played countless wedding ceremonies providing instrumental, acoustic jazz and pop music as well as wedding classics.
We can somewhat tailor our set list to be appropriate for a variety of venues and events but please keep in mind that with the rock band drums are loud. Our solo, 2-piece or jazz trio arrangements may be more appropriate for some venues both in volume and cost.
Our rate can include audio equipment suitable for all but the largest venues in the region if equipment is not provided.
Bookings outside of Tofino/ Ucluelet are possible but may carry additional costs for transportation and accommodation.
For rates and availability contact us by emailing BallisticPig@gmail.com or calling Geoff at (250) 266 2400
