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

What to Expect
"Classy, not classical."
Fun, fresh instrumental music that brings together the timeless appeal of acoustic instruments with the immediacy of modern rhythm.
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.
