Featuring viola, guitar and cajon, it's a rare acoustic combination with energy and elegance.
CLASSIC TRIO (Pop, R&B, Dance)
From Top 40 covers to classic ballads and originals, it's the signature Sons of Granville acoustic style: upbeat easy listening. Viola takes the place of a lead vocal, guitar sets the melodic arrangement like a piano and cajon lays the rhythm of a drum-kit.
FUSION TRIO (Atmospheric, Orchestral, Movie)
A lush viola drone accompanies classical guitar melodies and percussive flourishes. It's more like a film score than a folk band, creating a subtle yet powerful ambience.
SONS + ONE (Various Quartets)
We invite our best singers and instrumentalists on special request!
Sons of Granville played at our community fair and they were excellent.
Justin was very professional and courteous. He played great music and lots of customers commented on his great performance. In fact we are planning on hiring him tonight!
AMAZING MUSIC! ADD THE PERFECT ATMOSPHERE TO OUR WEDDING. THESE GUYS WERE TRUE PROFESSIONALS. THE MUSIC WAS PERFECT. THEY DRESSED AND ACTED PROFESSIONAL AND APPROPRIATELY. COULDNT HAVE ASKED FOR BETTER MUSICIANS.
Response from Sons of Granville:
Thanks for the kind words, Aron! So happy it was just what you wanted. You and Nicole have been a joy working with.
We're proud to be a small part of your Big Day :)
Justin, from Sons of Granville, got back to me in a timely manner after I submitted a quote. He shared recordings and it matched what we were looking for. I sent updates to Justin before the event and he got back to me if he had any comments or questions. Justin came to the event venue to set up early and that was great because the band had lots of time to do sound check. All the attendees enjoyed the music they played and Sons of Granville was great to work with!
The guys were a fantastic addition to our grand re-opening event. They were incredibly professional as well as talented - the music and vibes were perfect and we really appreciated all of the setup and quality sound equipment. We will certainly be looking to book them for our next event.
Response from Sons of Granville:
Thank you Jacqui! It was an absolute pleasure performing for you and your team.

What to Expect
Our music features lyrical viola melodies over guitar chords and cajon rhythms. It ranges from classic pop covers and elegant soundscapes to upbeat dance tunes. As an experienced special events band, we believe in effective and timely communication to give you all the background information and confidence that our music will complement your event perfectly.
Our presentation and repertoire heavily depends on the needs of the event. As we've played hundreds of shows, we're accustomed to reading the room constantly and adapting to any changes. We capitalize on unexpected moments that happen around us, naturally ramping up with the mood and merriment of your guests. Sometimes, a film-score ambience is called for, while a spontaneous celebration suddenly taking hold warrants something more visceral and energetic.
We arrive early to setup our PA system and conduct a thorough soundcheck without getting in people's way or causing a distraction. Even in tough logistical situations, we have a smooth setup.
As an added bonus, we don't require you or the venue to provide a dedicated audio technician. We know how to get balanced coverage, even in tricky venues. Two thirds of our band membership have professional background in audio engineering and live sound reinforcement.
Sons of Granville formed in 2010 as a duo featuring viola and guitar. In 2011 we released a self-titled debut and made the first of three consecutive “Best of Vancouver” appearances as voted by the readers of Georgia Straight. We added percussion and built a reputation for crazy street shows. Through 2012 and 2013 we were a staple of Vancouver’s entertainment district as crowds spontaneously gathered to catch some virtuosic flair. The Imperative Drive LP was released in 2014 as a farewell to our busking roots.
