Since then the venue has become a powerhouse in the local Vancouver scene, bringing a wide array of artists to our fair city.
Great act like Flying Lotus, Grimes, Foals, London Grammar, Flatbush Zombies, Flight Facilities and many more have graced their stage.
Their booking staff have a sharp ear for up and coming talent.
They always seem to be able to book certain acts, right before they blow up into the mainstream.
Back in 2009 local mainstays Garret “GMan” Louie and Rob Rizk, aka Gman and Rizk, having been pillars of the industry for years, conceived the idea of Fortune Sound Club. Over the years, Gman & Rizk have continued to build and support the local Canadian, and worldwide, music community, exposing the public to new artists, expanding the minds of many through music.
The venue is known for its unbelievable sound system, anyone that has been in attendance will tell you those speaker will shake your soul.
Over the years I have seen my share of acts pass through those doors, it is humbling to see the venue celebrate its 5th year in the scene.
In celebration of their five year anniversary, they are throwing a big party.
