Brother Bob & Elliot C. Way are very proud and happy to announce that after a long hiatus they have returned with their monthly singer/songwriter showcase in East Vancouver.
The first show back was incredible.
For The Sake Of The Song Sundays, was an intimate magical night of song created by Bob Sumner & Elliot Christopher Way. It is difficult to convey what exactly happened those nights in Elliot's dusty River Vintage shop on Commercial Drive.
The Cheap beer, the intimate setting and quaint atmosphere, the incredible performances and the warm and loving community of listeners that showed up every month, made this night a beautiful experience to cherish and remember.
A few of the great artists that have graced our humble stage are: Ryan Boldt of The Deep Dark Woods, Simone Schmidt of The Highest Order, A.P. Dugas,Stripmall Ballads, and a whole lot of our favourite local talent to boot.
Sadly, The River Vintage closed down and we found ourself without a home. We decided we did not want to force the shows without a proper intimate venue. We waited patiently, trusting that something would eventually come along and now it has. Anchor Guitars/Cousin Jack is the perfect space because of its small intimate setting, hidden location, and its plethora of exposed brick and hardwood.
We've been travelling around for some time now, playing music, meeting a lot of folks we now consider dear friends. We asked a bunch of these friends to send us a Christmas greeting in promotion of our 8th annual Sumner Brothers Xmas with the The Maldives, The Moondoggies & The WILD NORTH this Thursday at The Biltmore Cabaret.
We had such a good time seeing all these faces again, some we don't get to see near enough. A lot of characters, a lot of good folks.
A Very Merry Christmas!
Hope to seeya at the show!
If you'd like to send us your Xmas greeting we'd love to hear from you...post it in the event!
