A special fundraising concert for First Impressions Theatre, this is the first time The Paperboys will grace the stage of the Deep Cove Shaw Theatre. Formed in the mid-90’s by Mexican-born musician Tom Landa, The Paperboys’ sound fuses folk, Celtic and bluegrass music with pop and rock.
The Paperboys recorded their first CD in the 1990’s and set out to tour across Canada in a used van they bought for $500 bucks. What happened since is 7 albums, countless tours of North America and Europe, TV and movie appearances, movie scores, industry accolades, rave reviews from press and media, and several music awards, including a JUNO.
The sound of the band has evolved a lot since the early days, and these days it includes a 3-piece horn section and digs deep into Tom’s Mexican heritage by adding son jarocho and Afro-Mexican grooves to the mix. The band’s true uniqueness is and has always been in their live shows. It is there where the only opinion that matters is that of the fans that have been supporting the band since its inception.
For the past 15 years, The Paperboys have been selling out venues around the globe. The band’s latest CD, Callithump, is a perfect marriage of all the different styles The Paperboys play. Producer Joby Baker captured the essence and the energy of the band in a way not done before. The infectious hooks of the horns blended with the lyrical sounds of the fiddle and flute make for a melodic delight, while the influence of Latin and African rhythms make the groove on this album truly dance- worthy.
