The roots of Brass Camel lead back to rock giants like Yes and Led Zeppelin. The one-of-a-kind Vancouver quintet blends 70’s prog rock, funk, and blues into a fresh and original sound. Born in early 2018, the group is the brainchild of Daniel James. Daniel has been a guitar prodigy since the age of 11, performing with legendary guitarist Les Paul at New York’s Apollo Theatre.
Brass Camel continues to perform before packed houses and has shared the stage with groups such as Big Sugar, Songhoy Blues and Hey Ocean in venues like the Commodore Ballroom and Rickshaw Theatre. Technical junkies, blues lovers, and funk groovers can all find common ground as they ride the rocking sounds of the Camel.
