Ivory Coast started practicing in September 2009 and played their first show the next month. They were immediately well received and found themselves quickly playing more shows, one of which being the Yale Secondary Battle of the Bands at which they won the grand prize of recording time at Focus Music Productions in Abbotsford. With an EP recorded and new material in the works, Ivory Coast continued to progress both musically and professionally. Another show of note was the Battle on the Ridge presented by 100.5 the PEAK. After being selected from a number of applicants and having a live tryout, Ivory Coast was selected to play alongside Peak Performance Project finalist Bend Sinister in Maple Ridge. Following that, Ivory Coast showcased some new material in the Abbotsford School District Battle of the Bands Competition and came second, receiving recording time with Green Room Studios in Abbotsford where they recorded their sophomore EP. The band is talented, musical and fun-loving, putting serious effort into being original and modern without sounding immature. Ivory Coast loves what they do and would like to continue doing it for a long time.
