HIGH SOCIETY WILL play Nov. 22 at the Waverley Hotel.

High Society ‘unstoppably dramatic’ soul and blues band

Based out of Vancouver, High Society will perform Nov. 22 at the Waverley Hotel with special guest Annie Becker

High Society is an unstoppably dramatic rockin’ soul and blues band, eager to fill your eyes and ears with euphoric excitement and inspiration.

In 2010, Chelsea D.E. Johnson and Adam Farnsworth started a bi-monthly showcase called Sunday’s Best.

They took on multi-instrumentalist Ashton Sweet on the baritone saxophone and well-toured percussionist Kenan Sungur on drums. The night became a local hit and the band grew tighter as they prepared new material for each show.

In 2011, the group changed their name to High Society and brought their material to Mushroom Records and CBC Studio 2 to record their self-titled debut album.

They have featured as a main act at the Robson Valley Music Festival and Arts Wells, backed burlesque troupes, rocked house parties,cafés, bars and theatres across Western Canada and are eager to make the leap to the East Coast tour circuit.

Based out of Vancouver, High Society will perform Nov. 22 at the Waverley Hotel with special guest Annie Becker.

It’s hard to believe this girl is from the West Coast and not from the basement of a late-’30s jazz club. Becker has been cloaking her audiences in a gyp-sea of horns, guitars, pianos, basses, ukuleles, and drums laced with sultry soundscapes and groovy beat-boxing styles over stages and streets across Canada.
