Key City Theatre and Western Financial are Proud to present “The Acoustical Sounds of Big Sugar” Monday March 2 at 7:30 p.m.

Big Sugar have always been known for their powerful, high volume live performances.  Soon, audiences will get a rare chance to see Gordie Johnson and the entire Big Sugar family in an intimate and entirely acoustic setting at Key City Theatre in Cranbrook.

“Most of our songs were written and conceived on acoustic instruments,” Johnson said. “This performance gives folks a chance to hear the influences that inform our style.”

Reggae, Blues and Jazz, have always walked hand in hand with the rocking Big Sugar sound. Here they will be at the forefront as showcased on their new release “Yardstyle.”

In an interview with the Townsman last year, prior to Big Sugar’s performance at JulyFest in Kimberley, Johnson discussed “Yardstyle” and its creation.

Mr Chill’s blues harmonica and Johnson’s vocals mixed with Jamaican folk rhythms and Garry Lowe’s signature bass lines along with a stage of brethren are sure to conjure an unforgettable concert experience.

Tickets are $40 and $35 for Key City Theatre members. Tickets are available at the Key City Theatre Box Office 250-426-7006 and Online at www.keycitytheatre.com
