Formed in 1995, the band has toured internationally, across Canada, released 4 full length albums to critical aclaim, played shows everywhere from smoky alternative venues to some of the city’s biggest soft seater theaters and has been the proving grounds for some of Vancouver’s finest Jazz and Pop musicians. Having recently aquired new singer Melissa Bandura, the band is exploring some new melodic heights. With the addition of Mel’s perfect pitch, smoky sweet sound, sultry stage presence and occasional tasty violin forays, the Colorifics are infused with new energy and vitality. The live show is a constant stream of colour, different genres and rythyms woven in a tapestry of sweet melodies, now slow and sweet, now fast and intricate. Casual and confident on stage, the Colorifics keep it coming at a delightful pace. With unique original songs rivalling jazz standards of the past and pop hits of today, one can’t help but sing along and dance. It’s hard to believe a four piece (drums, bass, guitar and vocals) can produce this much sound and variety of feeling. Often incorporating 4 part harmony and featuring many duets, the Colorifics’ highly arranged songs manage to retain a catchy simplicity that excites the average listener whilst still engaging even the more experienced members of the music community. Executed with poise, class, professionalism, and a lot of sass, the music of the Colorifics is a welcome refreshment for the musical soul.
