The Backstage Lounge Presents
Brehdren
wj/ White Blood Cells
reggae/ska/rock band

[breh-dren]
1. A seven-piece Vancouver-based reggae/ska/rock band

Formed in 2010 in a basement in East Vancouver, Brehdren’s sound is based around its energetic front man Scott ;E. ;Moil (former lead singer for popular local ska band the Malchiks). More than just a signer, Scott’s focus on being an entertainer is first and foremost, whether jumping on the dance floor to rile up the crowd or performing shows as fictional characters.

But a band can’t just be an enigmatic crazy front man, can it? The other six members of Brehdren back Scott up with songs based centrally in reggae, ska and rock, while touching on elements of jazz, indie pop and even progressive rock.

For the past two years Brehdren has been perfecting its sound in that same basement it was founded — only stepping out to play a few select shows to test out their new musical creations; and to let Scott out into public for a couple hours.

But now, Brehdren is ready to take their sound to the masses and is looking to play as many all-ages and 19+ shows they can; all with the single goal of making people get up and dance.
