“If No Doubt had a child with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Rage Against the Machine, it would be Raincity.” 
- Vancouver Guardian
Raincity is a Vancouver-based Rage-Funk band fronted by female leads on saxophone and vocals. The five members of Raincity combine their eclectic influences including Moon Hooch, Amy Winehouse, Queen, and Rage Against the Machine. Their live shows are unique and explosive! They have performed over 300 shows since their inception opening for acts such as Our Lady Peace, Bif Naked, and Five Alarm Funk on stages such as the Commodore Ballroom and The Bill Reid Amphitheater.
“Their live show is gloriously quirky and energetic and it’s not surprising at all that this five-piece has won virtually every music contest they’ve entered”
— EARTHLY PURSUITS

Twice awarded the "Best Live Acts" award from the City of Vancouver, the multi-award winning West Coast Funk-Rockers recently placed in the Top 5 in the Jim Beam/CMW National Talent Search. With their brand new album, "A Proper Latte", the group addresses their frustrations with labelling (genre, sexuality, or otherwise) and being put into a box. "The album is a mosaic of human experience that we hope will inspire others to look beyond labels and appearances to see the deeper threads that connect us all." With their explosive, female fronted live shows and expertly crafted, genre-defiant, expressive tunes, Raincity is a music force to be reckoned with!


Biography:

Raincity is a Vancouver-based Rage-Funk-Rock band fronted by female leads on saxophone and vocals. The five members of Raincity combine their eclectic influences including Moon Hooch, Amy Winehouse, Queen, and Rage Against the Machine. Their live shows are unique, explosive, and a platform to share their values of feminism, empowerment, and freedom of expression. They have performed over 300 shows since their inception opening for acts such as Our Lady Peace, Bif Naked, and Five Alarm Funk on stages such as the Commodore Ballroom and The Bill Reid Amphitheater.

 

Raincity first came together as a jazz trio in 2016, known as ‘Raincity Blue’. During their career Raincity has performed at a number of festivals including Rifflandia, Canadian Music Week, the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, and Bellingham Downtown Sounds where they opened for Grammy award-winning Rebirth Brass Band. They were the winners of The Roxy Launch Project, the Rock the Mic competition, Music Heals Covers for a Cause, and Live Acts Best in Vancouver Contest throughout 2018 and 2019. Raincity is thankful to be supported by FACTOR and Creative BC.

 

In 2020 they were one of five regional finalists in the Jim Beam/CMW National Talent Search. Throughout 2020/2021 they performed at virtual and outdoor festivals including Mission Folk Festival, Vancouver Island Music Festival, Surrey Canada Festival, and Pride Festival. This indie band is constantly evolving and upgrading their wide ranging skills including audio engineering, videography, photography, grant writing, animation, and graphic design. Their newest album “A Proper Latte” is coming out April 2022 followed by a Canadian tour in May, and June.
