Take one of Victoria’s most elegant and historic theatres, combine it with a killer DJ, sprinkle in four awesome local bands of completely different genres, and you get The Blender at the Mac.

This Wednesday, December 20th at the Royal MacPherson Playhouse, you can take in Malahat, The Brass, Man Made Lake, Distant Grand, and DJ Mikey B, all at the same place.

It’s a musical mash of great local talent, and is sure to get your head rockin’ to the beat.

Check out what’s on tap!


Malahat combines modern sound with some old school vocals, crunching guitar riffs, and ear popping drum fills. It’s when grunge rock meets blues with a dash of psychedelic. Keep your ears tuned for the incredible range of sounds these folks produce.

Man Made Lake

Man Made Lake combines rock with soft melodies, a taste of funk, and a little something to catch you off guard. They’ll throw any style at you, so be prepared to be taken for a ride.

Distant Grand

Distant Grand brings slow-paced, thoughtful melodies combined with intricate harmonies. Sensual bass riffs with clever guitar overlays give this duo a unique sound that soothes the soul.

The Brass

The Brass is a non-auditioned brass and woodwind ensemble based right here in Victoria. No genre is off limits, and these folks will arrange, learn, and master any song they feel like. And there’s nothing like experiencing the chorus of your favourite song revamped into a brass extravaganza.
