In this instalment of my “Flashlight” post series, where I feature Canadian funk bands and musicians, I’ll take some time to talk about BUSTY & THE BASS.

Busty and the Bass is a collective of musicians from across North America who formed while studying at McGill University in Montreal. They started playing small house parties and even performed for the McGill University Street Dancers event: Mothafunka. The band has matured into a tight electrofunk unit and is certainly one of Canada’s most vibrant and exciting new groups.

In 2014, Busty was named “Canada’s top university band” by the CBC. Since then, they have toured extensively across the Northeast, including performing at Canadian Music Week and the Montreal International Jazz Festival.

Busty puts on an amazing and energetic live show. If they ever roll into your area, be sure to take in their funk!

Here is the video to one of my favourite songs by Busty: “Tryna Find Myself”
The video features some LockUnity members and other Montreal street dancers getting down on McGill University campus (my old school!)
