Sons of Granville

instrumental band

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 style featuring viola, guitar and cajon. Shades of romanticism and modern fusion mix with lively world-beat rhythms, the perfect blend of elegance and excitement for corporate events, staff parties, weddings and other special celebrations.

Sons of Granville was formed by two busking virtuosos: violist Thomas Beckman and guitarist Matthew Lennox. In 2011 they released their self-titled debut and made the first of three consecutive “Best of Vancouver” appearances.

Later that year, the band added percussionist Jarrett Plett as they cemented a reputation for unbridled theatrics on viola, guitar and cajon. Throughout 2012 and 2013, the acoustic trio was a staple of Vancouver’s entertainment district while also performing large events like the Vancouver Spring Show and Squamish Music Festival. They released the feverishly-epic Imperative Drive LP in 2014 as a farewell to their busking roots.

Sons of Granville added producer-guitarist Justin Brown in 2015, emerging with a more polished and melodic style. They quickly became one of Vancouver’s top special events bands, playing acoustic music that carries a universal appeal.
