Val Kilmer and the New Coke is a five piece band that has made people in the Kootenays grow a special place in their hearts for the 80s. Based out of Nelson the band has relentlessly toured ski towns and major cities all over BC and Alberta since 2010. Playing at events like Shambhala Music Festival, Unity Festival, Kamp Festival, Griz days in Fernie, as well as working with Whitewater Ski Resort, Big White, Whistler-Blackomb & Vail Resorts, Retallack, and Red Mountain Resort have been some of the highlights over the years.
There are many 80s bands out there, but none do it quite like Kilmer. Fronted by their lovely and talented vocalist/keyboard/synth player and supported by a dashing array of awesome talent, the band not only slays the 80s cheese but provides with it an extraordinary commentary that will leave you speechless, flattered, slightly offended, and bursting into laughter at the same time.
Some of the band's favourite songs include Eye of the Tiger, Walk Like an Egyptian, Party all the Time, Da ya Think I'm Sexy, Blue Monday, The Final Countdown, Maniac, Everybody Wants to Rule the World, and many more...
