SUNPARLOUR PLAYERS - MAY 4, 2018
Sunparlour Players consists of songwriter Andrew Penner on lead vocals, guitar, bass, banjo, bass organ pedals, percussion, and kick drum and Michael "Rosie" Rosenthal on drums, glockenspiel, banjo, backing vocals, keyboards and bass. They come from Ontario. Andrew Penner grew up on a farm near Leamington in the region nicknamed Canada's "Sun Parlour". Sunparlour Players are two unique and creative individuals who embrace both the dark and light in their songs. Dusty landscapes, rural backdrops and desolate times: themes that wouldn't be out of place in a Cormac McCarthy novel are matched with the fervour and joy of a gospel revival, usually all within one song. On stage, Sunparlour Players take their fans through a roller coaster of emotion and energy, thunderous stomping one moment and delicate strumming the next, always backed by the duo's boundless energy. Enjoy the ride.
