The Unified are a funk-rock soul-hop outfit born out of shared ideals of love, connectedness and inclusivity. Based out of Vancouver, the independent band has been likened to the sounds of Jamiroquai and Santana for their grooves and shake your booty beats. The combination of infectious grooves and feel good message creates a signature Unified experience. In the past eight years the group has gigged extensively at sold out shows, festivals and packed dance floors. To learn more about The Unified's music find them on any major music streaming site.

"Your album makes everyone want to dance and groove"
Make Music Festival, Vancouver
“The Unified is the most exciting band to hit the Vancouver Scene! A riveting blend of ska, funk and different styles that are absolutely outstanding! The vocals and sound of this band is absolutely killer! Vancouver look out for The Unified. There is no doubt in my mind they will be taking over this city!”
Malaika Jackson, Vancouver Television
"I hired The Unified to perform at my singles release party in Dec 2014 and man, did they ever rock the crowd! I MC'd an event a few months prior where they were the headliners and knew I had to have them at my show. The band members are all super-creative and versatile. They can improvise and switch the flow at a moment's notice. Their sound is unique, soulful and inclusive - anyone, I mean anyone, can enjoy this band. I purchased their first EP after I first heard them perform and our family listens to it often. I wish The Unified much success on their journey!"

"I've had the privilege of working with The Unified since 2010. Ever since I heard them play, my body and soul were hooked! Their infectious groove, catchy “get stuck in your head” songs and energy is undeniable. No matter what the venue or demographic is, people have such a positive experience and reaction to the Unified, its quite spectacular. I am very passionate and involved in performances with a purpose, humanitarian and charity events and I couldn’t think of a better band to collaborate with in delivering my visions and goals of empowering, educating and bettering our societies. These five guys wear their hearts on their sleeves and it shows in their music, performance, energy and attitude both on and off the stage. I would highly recommend the Unified for any major community, festival, corporate or family event."
