Formed from the primordial ooze of a simian race of humanoids, Damn Apes has evolved into something rock, something catchy, something creative, and at times something quirky.
The three members, Victor Hodge, Brad Dixon, and Ryan Larocque have been playing music together for over seven years. With Victor?s 20+ years experience playing piano and song writing, he truly creates the foundation for the band's sound as a formidable creative lead. Starting as a classical player and completing the royal conservatory, Victor was considered one of the top piano players in B.C. for his age, at the age of 16. He has now taken that same dedication and determination to song writing, which shows itself in shining colours on their soon-to-be-released self-titled debut album. Brad and Ryan, with nearly 25 years of combined experience, bring a cohesiveness to the band, helping Victor take his rough song ideas to whole new levels. Collectively, the three reinterpret the material into a broad range of styles, all the while retaining the essence and feel of the original songs.
On the precipice of releasing their first album, Damn Apes is ready to play, promote and push their band to new heights, leaving a lasting impression on anyone who has experienced their sound.
