Sons of Granville

a soundscape for life

Playing acoustic-based instrumental music that’s elegant yet energetic, Sons of Granville is the perfect live band for corporate events.

Sons of Granville earned three consecutive podiums in Georgia Straight's annual Best of Vancouver edition with a signature instrumental trio featuring viola, guitar and cajon. Shades of classical romanticism and modern fusion blend with lively world-beat rhythms for a style that caters perfectly to weddings and special events.

Their sound is so unique and beautiful, and their music was pure magic at the UBC Botanical Garden.

HISTORY

Sons of Granville formed in 2010 as a busking duo on the streets of Vancouver. Featuring energetic performances on viola and guitar, two virtuosos exchanged fire over rhythmic and harmonic forms that would invariably give way to a lot of improvisation and excitement.

In 2011 they released their self-titled debut and made their first of three consecutive “Best of Vancouver” appearances as voted by the readers of Georgia Straight. The band then added percussion as they continued building a reputation for crazy street shows.

Through 2012 and 2013 the band was a staple of Vancouver’s entertainment district as large crowds gathered to catch their unbridled theatrics and share videos with friends. They played at the 2013 & 2014 Vancouver Spring Show and the Squamish Music Festival.

Sons of Granville released the Imperative Drive LP in 2014 as a farewell to their busking roots.

Their performance for the ceremony, through cocktail hour and dinner was exceptional. Guests commented all night on how much they enjoyed the music and asked us over and over “where did you find these guys??”
