"Up & coming band "BraVurA" played at the Wax in downtown Kitchener on December 13th. The local band rocked out with 3 lead guitar players: Duckman, Jonah Kay, Travis Mackinnon, Drummer Darren Venhuizen & bassist Justin Ferrari. This incredibal 5 piece band opened up for 'My Wicked Twin'. Bravura plays the perfect mix of progressive metal, rock and technical duality & recently released a demo early September 2008." - KW SNAP


"We've worked as hard as we can to get to where we are. I'm proud to say that I have played a show at the Elmo, it's like no other venue so far." - Justin Ferrari (Bassist)

The El Mocambo, or The Elmo as some call it, is usual home to the greats such as The Rolling Stones
, Stevie Ray Vaughan and The Police. But Saturday May 30th was Bravura's night to live the magic.

Playing delicious harmonies and hooks, Bravura hit the stage with flawless precision. Featuring the distinctive 7 string sound of Jonah Kay, the crushing/melodic vocals of Kaleb "DuckMan" Duck, the dexterous playing of Travis MacKinnon and the groovy backbone of Darren Venhuizen and Justin Ferrari. The band was competing in a Battle of The Bands hosted by Paragon Online.

It was one hell of a night for Bravura fans as they were treating to a bus ride from "Uncle Jaime" and a uniquely virtuous show from the band.

Bravura is working towards a full length album and their first music video. Keep an eye out for these guys, their record will be out late summer and you’re not going to want to miss it!

"...Which brings us to Bravura, the Kitchener- Waterloo metal band invited to open each of the Princess's three Anvil screenings with two of their own compositions and one by their illustrious metal-cessors. "The Bottom line is, I'm a musician," notes lead singer Kaleb(Duckman) Duck, who doesn't know much about Anvil, hasn't seem the film but has somehow, passionately, latched onto their never-say-die spirit.
"Working a job and all that (bleep) isn't really me. I need to be on stage and express myself. If I don't make it anywhere, so what? I'm never gunna give up. If it takes me till I'm 60 or 80, I'm still gunna be playing....Whatever struggle I gotta make, whatever bull(bleep) I gotta do, I'm gunna do it!!! You can make the dream a reality if you stick with it. I will go through anything I have to go through. You do it for the love of the music!..." - The KW Record newspaper

Bio

Playing delicious harmonies and hooks, BraVurA hits the stage with flawless precision. Hailing from Kitchener, Ontario, the band has one thing on its mind: “kicking your ***”! BraVurA features the distinctive seven string sound of Jonah Kay, the crushing/melodic vocals of Kaleb "DuckMan" Duck, the dexterous playing of Travis MacKinnon and the groovy backbone of Darren Venhuizen and Justin Ferrari. The 5 members have come together to form the perfect mix of progressive metal, rock and technical plurality.

"...this demo reads like an early Judas Priest release, mixed with a new music feel of what the market is offering up these days. It’s more than worth a listen."
- Brent Doerner (Helix)

Enveloping musicality and technical playing; the riffs are complex, as are the songs. Dedication to the art of music is clear in BraVurA. They’ve pushed themselves to create their own metal beast while keeping close to their roots. With great melodies and harmonies, growling and shredding guitar solos, they have demonstrated what it is to be musicians and to work together towards something great.

Releasing their self-titled debut EP on Sept 5th, 2008, the band have since played many shows and are working very hard to finish their first full length album as we speak. They can be heard on Y108 Rocks! or College and University radio stations.

Bravura has just joined forces with original line up of HELIX, Canadian ROCK ICONS. Duckman is now the new young gun guitar player touring with the band.
Lets just say watch out for the BraVurA train to roll through your town.
