The first ever Sharon Soundbites was an amazing event! Thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the first of our music series. We are hoping to grow Sharon Soundbites with each year! The Sharon Temple National Historic Site and Museum loves any chance to have our site filled with music. The Children of Peace brought music to the Temple, and it is our job to keep it going. Let’s wake museums up!
The concert started with an opening set by Sydney Bolin-Moss from Connors Music and our mid-set performer was another Connors Music student, Cindy Lunau. Both girls have powerful and unique voices and their sets were both relaxing and mesmerizing.
The Elwins played two different 45-minute sets, with music from their various albums, new music that has yet to be released, and a wicked cover of Adele. The four band members, Travis, Matt, Feurd, and Frankie are amazingly down to earth and fun to be around. Their music is a mix of pop from the last five decades, which leaves you dancing. They even showed off their talent by switching instruments during their set.
After the show, Feurd and Frankie took a moment to play the piano that sits inside the temple. Check it out below!
Wickedly Sinful came out and provided everyone with delicious poutine that I personally cannot stop thinking about! This blog post was almost entirely about them, and I might have to start following them around everywhere they go for more yummy food. Their #SteakPoutine and Deep-fried maple cookies were heavenly.
As well, Molson Canadian brought in four of their servers to help us serve various drinks at our event! We had Molson Canadian Beer and Cider, Coors Light, and various coolers. Having the event licensed really added to the atmosphere of day. The site really felt like you were sitting in your backyard listening to music, but instead of a radio it was a live band.
