Singing songs in harmony in Beer

18:30 24 October 2012


Society will be performing at The Dolphin Hotel, Fore Street, Beer, on Saturday, November 3.

For those that don’t know, Society are a three-piece country rock band from West Sussex, who specialise in gorgeous three-part harmonies that set them apart from the current crop of Americana or country rock wannabes in the UK.

The band comprise guitarist Matt Wise, bassist Ben Lancaster and holding down the beat, F Scott Kenny on drums.

Their recorded and live sound has echoes of CSNY, The Band, The Heartbreakers, The Jayhawks and the late great Ronnie Lane and Slim Chance. Matt Wise composes most, if not all, of their material and when all three sing in harmony the result is simply stunning.

This was shown perfectly at the 2011 Maverick Festival where they had the audience spellbound listening to their live performance.

Since forming in 2004, Society have supported many great artistes including Eve Selis, Deadstring Brothers, Corb Lund, Luke Doucet and The Wailin’ Jennys.

Apart from their own UK headline shows, Society have completed two tours of Canada along with a string of dates in the American mid-west.

Tickets for the event, on Saturday, November 3, which starts at 7.45pm, cost £10.
