Spring at the Fairview

April 5th, 2013

Yes, spring has hit Vancouver and we are so ready for it.  It’s time to get out again and hit the town.  Why not head to the Fairview on Friday, April 19th?  We’ll be there and we’d love to see you!

Ready to Rock! Saturday, Jan 26th & Friday, Feb 1st

January 23rd, 2013

Yes people!  You have two chances to catch the R & B Conspiracy!  The first is Saturday night, Jan 26th we are hitting the stage at the Backstage Lounge.  If that isn’t enough for you – join us again on Friday, Feb 1st at the Fairview Pub.  I know I need to get out and shake off the January blues!

Here’s a cool clip from the amazing Sam Cooke, whose birthday just passed.  He would have been 82 and we’re still singing his stuff today.

November 24th at the Backstage Lounge

November 18th, 2012

We are back with some new tunes and a new guest drummer that you won’t want to miss! Mike Pascuzzi is an experienced drummer who’s been playing and performing for 8 years, and enjoys every living beat of it. Mike has recently graduated from Fraser Academy, enabling him to focus more on his music and career. Influenced by Rock, Funk, Blues and Soul, he’s a great fit for The R&B Conspiracy. “I’m always ready to tear up the skins!”

Don’t forget to come and check him out on Saturday, November 24th.

Andrew is Back!

August 10th, 2011

Have you heard?  The R & B Conspiracy is back together again.  We had a fab show in July and we’re ready to kick it again this Friday.  Come down to the Fairview on August 13th.   I heard rumours of a strip tease…

Another Great Show at the Backstage

May 18th, 2011

Thank you to Jesse, Jesse T, and for all of you who came out despite the Canucks loss!  A great night was had by all!  If you don’t believe me, check out some of the photos on our Flickr link.  There may even have been some girl-on-girl action on stage.  (Isn’t there always?)

Special Guest Drummer Rick Hill

March 30th, 2011

We are so pleased to feature the amazing Rick Hill at our show at the Fairview Pub on April 8th.  Rick is a local R & B legend.  He started drumming at the age of 10 (right around the time when Al, our keyboard player, met him!) and has been rocking ever since.  He is a veteran of the Vancouver music scene, even co-founding Vancouver’s own “Rhythm & Blues Allstars.”  He has shared the stage with James Brown, War, Chuck Berry, Paul Butterfield Blues band and Long John Baldry.  Wow.  We are ecstatic that he is sharing our stage at the Fairview on April 8th.  Don’t miss it!

Missing Andrew

March 10th, 2011

Is anyone out there missing Andrew as much as we are?  Thought I’d post a little something out of Andrew’s best moments.  Strip drumming… it’s very hot.
