"Underage and Rockin' out at Pop Montreal"

Armed with high-energy horns, soulful vocals, and a seriously tight rhythm section, Dancehall Free For All promise to move, sway and swirl at this year’s Pop Montreal. Their sound, often compared to the likes of Chicago, is of the hum-inspiring, can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head variety. Like Kylie Minogue, but, you know, talented. Having just released their debut EP, it’s rare that a band this young can claim so much cred – young, like they’ve been together for less than a year, and young, as in all six members are 17. After only half a dozen shows, these guys and a gal brought their groove to Guelph’s Hillside Festival – a known hotbed for up-and-coming rockers – this summer, finishing to a standing ovation and a shout-out from Craig Norris on his CBC Radio 3 blog. Now, with just a couple more shows under their belt, DFFA are set to prove themselves here in Montreal. One thing is for sure, DFFA will be skipping (high school) class on Friday to make it to Montreal on time for the show. This one, ladies and gents, is not to be missed.

Dancehall Free For All play My Hero Gallery (3655 St. Laurent) this Friday October 5 at 9 p.m.

Dancehall Free for All (Self Titled) 2007


Feeling a bit camera shy


If your looking for something new in Southern Ontario's up and coming music scene and you're trying to avoid pawn shop synthesizers or eighties hair metal revamped, then 'Dancehall Free For All' is just what you're looking for. With influences from Jazz, Ska, Rock and a hint of Funk into the mixture, 'Dancehall Free For All' creates a hybrid sound that can't quite be pinned down. We recommend that you spend less time trying to figure out exactly what genre of music they're playing and more time dancing, movin' and groovin' to the final result.
These 6 musicians from Guelph, Ontario, have captured a sound guaranteed to garner the approval of their listeners, leaving them humming contagious horn lines and drumming to the beat.
Dancehall Free For All had the amazing opportunity to play the Guelph Hillside Festival in July 2007, alongside greats like The Dears, Apostle of Hustle, Emily Haines, Do Make Say Think and many others. A few months later Dancehall received an invitation to the Pop Montreal music festival in October were they had an amazing show, and even better time in Montreal.
