Saint James Music Academy believes in the power and the joy of music to change lives. SJMA teaches classical music at no cost to children living in Canada’s lowest income urban neighbourhood. And the music does its magic. The children find joy. They discover the deep riches of their own potential and find new self-esteem. They learn about the beauty and the necessity of collaboration with others. They improve their intellectual and other skills. They learn to overcome barriers they did not make. In a word, they become empowered. For the good. Saint James Music Academy brings social transformation to the community, one child, one song at a time.
The Boom Booms are an Indie Soul band from Vancouver, BC. Friends from childhood, they released their debut album, Butterfly Man (2008), where the video for their feel-good party anthem, “When the Night”, reached #6 on the Much More Music chart and was licensed for an episode of 90210. The Boom Booms released their second album ¡Hot Rum! (2011), which earned them a spot in The Peak Performance Project. They won second place picking up a cash prize of $75,000, which enabled them to produce and release their travel documentary, Boom Boom Brazil. Their sophomore release with Grammy Award-winning producer Chin Injeti “Love Is Overdue” came out Oct. 4th 2014, and draws more on childhood influences such as Bill Withers and Al Green.
