MAGICAL MELODIES - The Bros. Landreth performed a number of tunes from their album

The Bros. Landreth rock away for Jazz at the Lake

The soft rock riffs of Juno Award winning artists, The Bros. Landreth echoed beautifully through the sound system of the Alliance Community Church on Friday evening.

The fantastic fall finale of Jazz At The Lake’s four part seasonal concert series, ‘Autumn Leaves’ saw a nearly full house in attendance to hear the Bros. Landreth perform numbers from their most recent album, ‘Let It Lie’.

The Bros. Landreth are unlike other artists typically heard on the Jazz At The Lake Festival stage, offering up a southern inspired, yet truly Canadian masterpiece in their music which can only be described as alternative folk rock infused with country twang.

Belting out fun filled tracks from their most recent album such as the truly heartbreakingly beautiful ballad, ‘Greenhouse’ and the back road anthem, ‘Going to the Country’ The Bros. Landreth put on a stunning performance that left toes tapping.

Co-founder of Jazz At The Lake, Eric Allison said prior to the show that although the Bros. Landreth weren’t jazz, they were ‘just plain great’ which meant Jazz at the Lake was pleased to be able to bring them to Sylvan Lake.

The Bros. Landreth are frequently played on CBC Radio and have gained a great deal of traction with their new album following the Juno Awards.

“We decided to go ahead and book them although they weren’t jazz,” said Allison.

Cheryl Fisher, co-founder added the first time she heard the band she knew she had to bring them to Sylvan Lake.

“We are so lucky to have the Bros. Landreth here in Sylvan Lake tonight,” said Fisher. “More importantly we are so lucky to have every one here in attendance tonight in small town central Alberta appreciating these world class musicians coming to you in your community. To have you be here and trust our choice we thank you.”

Fisher and Allison took a break from the full Jazz at the Lake Festival over the past two years but are immensely excited to be bringing the full meal deal back to town next summer.
