Vancouver rockers No Island visit Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek Wednesday as part of their 2015 summer tour.

While the band has toured extensively throughout the past few years, this will be its first time playing in the Enderby area.

Offering a modern vintage rock sound, featuring four-part harmonies, saxophone and three lead singers, the five-piece embodies something new with a hint of familiarity.

Comprised of Capilano University grads, No Island recently released its debut full-length album, Better Days, to positive reviews.

As Graham White from the Vancouver blog GeyserMusic put it, “It feels like a throwback to an earlier time in music, in the best way… Even in the recording I can hear the energy and stage presence this group of frontmen must have seeping out of every pore.”

In addition to playing their own original songs, band members have become known for their version of several ‘70s hits.

In April, No Island was awarded $1,000 from Vancouver radio station LG104.3 for its version of The Eagles’ One of These Nights.

The band hits the stage at Lorenzo’s, 901 Mabel Lake Rd., Wednesday, July 29 at 8 p.m. Call 250-838-6700  for more information.
