Demo 2007, recorded professionally by VAI students.



First Time Victor, suggesting victory on the band's first performance, remembering how successful that first live appearance at the Purple Crab was. Since then, the band has played many venues in Vancouver and its area, sometimes even attracting passers-by into the club thanks to their infectious grooves.

First Time Victor distills a brand new mix of vibes resulting in an original sound that has the crowds up their feet. Afro-Caribbean beats, bouncy music to which you'd dance to on a sunny beach.

Mike Pugh and Brad Bradley were high school jam buddies who wanted to do more than jam. Mike and Brad had been composing songs together for years, and started auditioning singers to front their soon-to-be band. After giving up on the initial search for singers, they met Alex, the European wonder who could keep a beat, and the band started to gain momentum with the addition of talents Jenna Mack, on vocals and Kevin Tang on trombone.

In April and May 2007, the 5-member strong band was shortlisted and eventually selected by the Vancouver Arts Institute to help its students with their final year recording projects. The band thus recorded its demo in the Institutes's own studio.

First Time Victor has since performed various venues, clubs and festivals all over BC since the summer of 2007 (Backstage Lounge, Railway Club, Cafe Deux Soleils, Purple Crab, Moe Joe's in Whistler, Kidstock festival on SaltSpring Island,...)
