Freemasonry and the Vancouver Music Scene

We’ve noticed that our page on Hip Hop and Freemasonry has been getting a lot of page views lately so, given the apparent interest in this topic, we decided to put up this post about Vancouver musicians who are active Freemasons.

As part of our Music and Masons series, here is a page about Freemasonry among currently active musicians in Vancouver, B.C.

We are currently aware of the following Vancouver, B.C. based musicians who are active Freemasons and members of Masonic Lodges in Vancouver, B.C.

Here is a representative video from each Brother:

Chris Greenfield (Luki Fero), Slice of Vice (2015)
