DJ Krafty Kuts in Invermere

Invermere will be coming alive with the sounds of breaks, electro, dubstep, drum and bass and hip hop when world-class DJ Krafty Kuts (Martin Reeves) takes to the Bud’s Bar and Lounge stage for a special performance this Friday (September 14).

“It’s pretty amazing for a small town like us to get an act like that,” said friend, promoter and fellow DJ Marc Lefebvre.

Reeves began his journey to superstardom and performing in front of crowds of thousands in Brighton, England, when at a DJ competition he stepped behind the decks as a novice and ended up making it to the finals. Reeves went on to run a record store where he honed his knowledge of every form of music. Today, his music is played in Coca Cola ads, video games and countless clubs around the world.

Reeves has also won the Best International DJ at the Australian Dance Music Awards, kicked off 2012 by winning three Breakspoll (International Breakbeat Awards) awards, and is currently on a whirlwind tour that will see him visit Spain, Russia and his native United Kingdom along with numerous Canadian stops.

Described as one of the best breakbeat DJs in the world, Reeves regularly teams up with some of the biggest names in the business, including A-Skillz and Dynamite MC. Reeves plays a mix of drum and base, dubstep and electronic house music alongside his usual breakbeat mixes. He has actually performed in Invermere once before, several years ago, in what Lefebvre said was a truly unforgettable performance.

“It was amazing,” he said. “It pretty much tore the roof off the place.”

Tickets for the September 14 show are on sale at Bud’s Bar and Lounge and at Syndicate, and are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. To hear his music, visit or

“If you’re going out to the bar only once this year, you have to go for this,” Lefebvre said.
