CARACAS (click to go to the bio!)

An explosive musical experiment that smashes together Punk rock, Ska beats, Jazz, Afro-Cuban rhythms, tons of Latin mojo and a kickass live show.

Watch "Bring on the Playtime" Music Video, and come to our last show! 

After months of hard work, polishing and mixing the song with our producer buddy Dylan (plus adding percussion tracks with our new drummer Greg), and working with our filmmaker buddy Shaun Walford, shooting video around Vancouver, we finally crossed the finish line - and are now super proud of the result! Can't wait to share it with you! Check out the video on YouTube below, or go to our Facebook page and watch it there (over 12,000 views and over 50 shares in less than two weeks! woohoo!)

Huge thanks to Shaun Walford (his company Shot by a Ninja is def worth your time!) for the spectacular work on the video, and to Dylan Ellis (his official Facebook page has all the goodies!) for the incredible work recording and mixing "Bring on the Playtime"! (And just wait until he's done mixing the other three songs that will be included in our upcoming EP in the Spring of 2016!)

For now, we will be playing our last show in a few months as we take a break to write new songs and rest from the crazy year that just passed! Don't miss your chance to catch us live this coming Saturday, December 5th at the Red Room Ultra Bar on Hastings and Richards, downtown Vancouver (check out the poster below). What an awesome venue, and what a great way to close the year!

Thank you to everyone who has been so supportive so far in this journey with us - hard to believe it's been almost 5 years! :D See you in 2016!
Go Caracas Go!


Caracas shoots music video! 

We spent a number of weekends with film director Shaun Walford from production outfit Shot by a Ninja, shooting the awesome music video for our upcoming re-vamped version of "Bring on the Playtime" (available in our upcoming 4 song EP of the same name). We spared no punches and this video has it all - from street shots to beach parties, from high def RED cameras to drone aerial shots! We seriously can't wait until its all done and ready to share with you!

Video screening party date and awesome supporting bands TBA soon!

Here are some preview pics so you can share our excitement! :D


Caracas in the recording studio! 

We are in the process of recording our new EP under the expert guidance of South African producer/engineer Dylan Ellis (Hokum, Rami Lakkis, etc). It will take a few weeks to record 4 songs: "Bring on the Playtime", "Fairy Dust Mofo", "Running" and "Pond of Dreams".

Although these are titles we've recorded in the past, don't be fooled - you've never heard them played this way before! Thanks to our new family members Heather (trumpet), Enmanuel (drums) and Luis (bass), we have finally achieved the way the songs were always meant to sound like -- big enough to blast through any festival sound system! :D

We're very excited for what we will share with you in the coming year..and beyond!


Pre-production at Vancouver Rockspace Studios

Producer Dylan Ellis shares a little preview of what's to come!



Caracas shoots their third photo-shoot! 

On an early Sunday morning in April, stellar photographer Paul Joseph (, stylist extraordinaire Ana Jost (Official Facebook page) and superb makeup/hair artist Merrissa Vogan, met us at the East Van Studios to shoot the band's new awesome promo shots!

Here's a behind the scenes video of how it all went down! (The soundtrack is our song "Pond of Dreams" live at the Jarabe de Palo show at the Rickshaw Theater!)
