An original Kootenay disco/house guy, vinyl hoarder, and Shambhala historian/Spiritual Advisor, Hoola is the only name that appears on every single Shambhala flyer since the beginning. One of a few founders of the Kootenay electronic music scene and the Kootenay vibe is now the man behind the Living Room stage beside partner Lion-S.

A notch above average and 1 below absolutely fabulous, Hoola has stood the test of time.. ….forever or infinity x infinity. The last man standing. He can also be found mysteriously scattered throughout the line-up with one of his many aliases playing who-knows-what every year. Don’t get within arm’s reach or he will steal your drink right out of your hand. I know, cuz it’s happened to me.
