We Hunt Buffalo

A Langley band called We Hunt Buffalo earns music award

The Fraser Valley Music Award winners included a Langley band.

Loud is one of the dozen categories in the inaugural Fraser Valley Music Awards and the category was won by a Langley band.

The first-ever Fraser Valley Music Awards took place in Abbotsford on Saturday night and We Hunt Buffalo from Langley won.

The event was hosted by CIVL radio and attracted about 110 applications representing more than 300 musicians. Jurors evaluated the entries and narrowed down the list to four or five nominees in each category, followed by the announcement of the winners on July 17.

“CIVL listeners, FVMA attendees, nominees, winners, and volunteers have all been thanking us, saying we are leading the way in promoting and supporting Fraser Valley music, and that’s our only goal!” said CIVL Radio station manager Aaron Levy, who hosted the show, along with local entertainer and M.C. Seth Bell.

Also among the 13 nominees, another from Langley was a local couple, The Kwerks.

In addition to bragging rights, We Hunt Buffalo also received a photo session with Photo Art by Simpson and a $50 Long & McQuade gift card.
