The Hillties: recipients of The Kootenay Music Awards “Best Jam Band/Artist” (2019) and “Best Reggae Song” (2018) are a six piece band (chapman stick, ukulele, guitar, piano, drums and three part harmonies) based out of Nelson BC. Using this unique instrumentation we blend ska/reggae and funk into original music to keep the dance floor bumping all night.
