at the Naval Elks Lodge

With a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as if they are right there on the stage with the band. They’ve created a live show that is as heartwarming as it is hilarious, as finger-picking proficient as it is relatable, and as Canadian as, well … it’s very Canadian, but that hasn’t stopped them from winning over audiences from Nashville to the Australian outback.
