We give Green Go our green light of approval (not that they need it or anything, 'cause this band is effing FANTASTIC)!
Hmm, how exactly do you describe this band? They are a mix and match of all things worth enjoying in life. Dancing. Drinking. Partying. Youth. Music... and of course the almighty REMIX!
They are a 5 piece band hailing from Guelph, ON and are vibrantly mashing-up the term Quint-Essential. They are probably best known for their incredible live remixes using synths, bass, drums and guitar to bring a unique and authentic electro-house sound to party lovers everywhere (no smoke and mirrors or computers here people, they are the real deal). You can check out the Green Go Remix Project Vol. 1 on their myspace page, which includes remixes of Born Ruffians, "This Sentence" and The D'Urbervilles', "Dragnet".
Green Go got their start performing at jam packed sweaty house parties in Southwestern Ontario and they have no intention of straying to far from the path that put them on the map. They have headlined Steamwhistle's Indie Unsigned Showcase, performed at NXNE music fest and have been stomping the stages with many up and coming bands from one end of Ontario to the other. Their début album, Borders, will be hitting speakers this coming April.
Catch them live:
February 28th (this Saturday) at Starlight Social Club in Waterloo, along with Bocce and DJ Global Warming - $8, or $5 with a non-perishable food donation. Ages 19+
March 13th at The Supermarket in Toronto as part of the Canadian Music Week showcase.
