Since 2013 BEST NIGHT EVER have been bringing their unique brand of meticulously crafted neo-motown tunes to music festivals and live venues around BC. Treading the line between modern & vintage, fresh yet familiar, their soulful sound is reminiscent of golden-era Michael Jackson or Stevie Wonder with a helping of modern R&B influence.
2017 CBC Searchlight regional finalists, the band has had a string of successes centered around their stunning live performances, including winning both the 2014 ROCK THE MIC and 2015 ROXY Launch Party contests. Along the way they’ve shared the stage with Canadian hit makers Nick Gilder & Sweeney Todd (“Roxy Roller”), viral YouTube sensation B. Rich (“Out for a Rip”), and Vancouver mainstays Bend Sinister & Tonye.
Their self-titled EP, engineered and mixed by Elisa Pangsaeng (Hey Ocean!, Said the Whale) led to local radio support and placement of their song Dancing By Yourself in the leo-nominated feature film FSM. More recently, the band released a pair of videos filmed at Vancouver’s Monarch Studio showcasing live performances of both their original song “This City” and a raucous take on MJ’s “P.Y.T.”. Since their release in 2016, the videos have garnered over 100,000 views between Facebook and YouTube and continue to help the group grow their international fan base.
The band is currently completing work on new upcoming EP thanks to a grant from Creative BC’s BC Music Fund. They continue to be regular weekend staples at some of Vancouver’s best live music venues, and are gearing up for their biggest, baddest year yet! Visit www.bestnigheverband.com for more information.
