– This seven-piece Vancouver-based reggae/ska/rock band was formed in 2010 by best friends, peers & family in an East Vancouver basement. Brehdrens sound is based around energetic front man Scott E. Moil who's more than just a singer, he's an entertainer first and foremost. But a band cant just be an enigmatic crazy front man, can it? The other six members of Brehdren back him up with songs that touch on elements of jazz, indie pop and even progressive rock. http://www.facebook.com/brehdren
