Saturday, June 3rd, 2017
Trevor is playing Friday, June 2nd, and Saturday, June 3rd. There’s just something honest, compelling and immediately like-able about Trevor Panczak and his music. With a refreshing authenticity that is increasingly rare to find, the 6’4” Alberta born and based country recording entertainer writes, interprets and records songs that speak to one’s heart in a way that is simple, soulful and with an appeal to a broad array of music fans. Trevor can make you laugh and cry as he takes the best elements of the older era of country music, where it was more grounded, more honest and more about real life, and combines it with a pop-modern, melodic flair, sensibility and sound.
The Washboard Union
Friday, June 2nd, 2017
Washboard Union is playing Friday, June 2nd.
In the few years they have been together, The Washboard Union have defied classification and become one of the most exciting and talked about new bands on the Canadian Country music scene. They are a sextet out of Vancouver led by principle members Aaron Grain, Chris Duncombe, and David Roberts. The three share a very similar unconscious soundtrack and unbridled love for the art of songwriting and storytelling. The three have been friends seemingly forever and the music they make has set them apart as one of the most unique talents in country music today. The band recorded their latest EP ‘In My Bones’ in the legendary RCA Studio A in Nashville, Tennessee. Originally built in 1964 as the home for Chet Atkins, RCA has been home to some of the most prolific recording artists in Nashville’s rich history including Dolly Parton, Tony Bennett, The Beach Boys, and more. “Standing in the great room you can literally hear a chorus in every wall. It remains as one of the most legendary music rooms in the world. I can tell you this – you don’t sing in Studio A, Studio A sings to you” – says David Roberts.
