"Stealing The Show"

"As promoters, (and music fans) we can count on Miami Device to put on a great show and get a full house dancing along to their grooves. People eat their stuff up - on one occasion we put on a CD release party for another band and had Miami Device open. The Miami Device CD crashed the party and outsold the other band's new release that night.

The whole crew is fun but also act professionally and are great to work with. "

"Vancouver's Funk Orchestra!"

"Miami Device are a regular on the Vancouver music scene. They approach events with a balance of fine musician and indie attraction that I haven't seen in any other act around town. I've had the pleasure of working with them and watching them for a decent period of time and would happily be considered a 'fan' of theirs. I describe them to my friends as a 'funk' orchestra, displaying levels of composure and routine that I wish I could teach to younger bands that I deal with. A really great set of guys and always a joy to work with."

Miami Device EP - 2009

You can buy the album here:



Miami Device is a 9-piece Afro-beat/Funk band based out of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Since their inception in 2007 the band has grown from a small four-piece funk experiment into the deep grooving, Fela Kuti inspired, juggernaut that exists today. With heavy driven horns atop syncopated guitars and layered percussion they produce a dance inducing, highly energetic live show.

The band boasts an incredible roster of local talent including members of Five Alarm Funk, Rude City Riot, The Carnival Band and Foundation. Their dynamic, rhythmically complex and extremely funky live show has seen them share the stage with internationally acclaimed acts like K-OS and Chin Chin.

In 2008 the band had it's first release of a self titled EP for which they undertook all recording, mixing and creative duties. A new full length album is scheduled to be released in late summer of 2011 and is highly anticipated. A tour throughout Canada is scheduled to follow.

Miami Device's live show is a truly memorable experience. An incredibly unique sound and an energetic live show keeps venues packed to the brim and fans consistently coming back again and again. They are certainly one of the top up and coming live acts in Western Canada.
