From Chilliwack, Rexford Drive is bringing their Alt rock here to Vancouver. Their marketable sound has a great chance of exploding on the scene here in Vancouver. We had a conversation about their plans for this years Best In Vancouver competition.
James: How did you find out about "Best In Vancouver"?
Rexford Drive: We had a show with The Vidos in Studio Records, it being our first gig in this area, Kevin met up with us and told us we should sing up for Best in the Vancouver since we had a pretty good crowd. We signed up, and sure enough we are here ! Opening the whole thing up on Oct 2 !
Rexford Drive: That is really up to you to decide, to us it is what we play, and how we play it that separates us from others. As we don’t focus on a specific genre. We play our hearts out, and put in everything for the music to describe us the best it can, as it is the music that you get to know us through. We smash the hell out our instruments, so that you can feel same portion of adrenaline that we do. If you don’t try to act like someone else, and let your creativity go free-fall you will always be original and somehow different from others. Honesty is the key, and we have few of those.
Rexford Drive: If you feel that our music is somehow special to you which I hope since it is special to us, otherwise we wouldn’t be doing this, then that is one. As for the other, we may have a drum solo thrown somewhere in there. So watch out !
Rexford Drive: I feel like any type of competition that gets bands a chance to play in front of people is a great opportunity. Thanks so many different bands playing, even if not winning, it is a great opportunity for people to discover new talents. For band mates to trade contacts, and book more shows. As music is not a competition. Music is and always was a way to get people together, and that’s what this event is to us.
