Clearly: over the past five years, Jackfruit has released two albums and done three East Coast tours.

They just returned to town last week, and now, are getting ready to play a few fall shows, including one in Squamish.

Opening the show is Fogon, a collective musical project that was started at Quest University two years ago. The play a unique blend of salsa, reggae, and "trip-folk." Today, the group consists of 15 musicians, songwriters and performers, with one album release, Paint The Sky , under their belt.
