5 short years ago Fortune Sound Club opened up.
Since then the venue has become a powerhouse in the local Vancouver scene, bringing a wide array of artists to our fair city.
Great act like Flying Lotus, Grimes, Foals, London Grammar, Flatbush Zombies, Flight Facilities and many more have graced their stage.
Their booking staff have a sharp ear for up and coming talent.
They always seem to be able to book certain acts, right before they blow up into the mainstream.
Back in 2009 local mainstays Garret “GMan” Louie and Rob Rizk, aka Gman and Rizk, having been pillars of the industry for years, conceived the idea of Fortune Sound Club. Over the years, Gman & Rizk have continued to build and support the local Canadian, and worldwide, music community, exposing the public to new artists, expanding the minds of many through music.
The venue is known for its unbelievable sound system, anyone that has been in attendance will tell you those speaker will shake your soul.
Over the years I have seen my share of acts pass through those doors, it is humbling to see the venue celebrate its 5th year in the scene.
In celebration of their five year anniversary, they are throwing a big party.
Here are the details:
Every year a special guest comes out to rock the masses.
This year is no different, the venue has managed to get American R&B star Sisqo.
The night will be filled in with a plethora of other artists including Flipout, Marlon J English, Cherchez, Rico Uno, Genie, and much much more.
Without all that said, it is obvious that this is setting up to be a night to remember, so go out and RSVP.
To those behind Fortune Sound Club, I just want to take a moment to congratulate all of your hard work, you guys keep killing it, night after night. Keep up the great work.
