Blenders is excited to welcome Saskatoon’s Gunner & Smith to our stage on Saturday November 20th, 2021.

Hope and redemption. Philosophy and folklore. The music of Gunner & Smith has always been a collection of fiery elements, blending searing guitars, brawny rhythms and distinct folk-family vocals to produce tightly-knit rock anthems. But on Byzantium, the group’s second full-length album, the songs simmer and seethe with a newfound brooding energy that looks at the darker sides of love, loss and humanity.

Anchored by the stolid songwriting of frontman Geoff Smith, the ever-shifting nature of the band has once again undergone another evolution, with a talented cadre of musicians joining the frontman at the helm. Featuring an ever-expanding sound that combines indie rock, alt-country and sizzling psych-Americana, Byzantium is borne from a deeper, darker place than the group’s previous material.

Having released his debut full-length album He Once Was a Good Man in 2014, the band has since toured across North America numerous times, played Folk Alliance International in New Orleans, and appeared the Reeperbahn Festival in Germany, traversing across the highways that cut through desolate areas that the frontman drew his inspiration from. Tapping into the mysticism of yesteryear, Smith – who has a Master’s Degree in Religious History focused on the Radical Reformation – continues to embrace a number of sly classic rock influences that tendril their way into the group’s core.

Gunner and Smith released Wisconsin, a 3 song EP, in the fall of 2020. The EP features traditional finger picking by Saskatoon’s the local group mingled with multi part harmonies reminiscent of folk greats of yesteryear. The album includes Townes Van Zandt’s I’ll Be Here In The Morning which is beautifully framed by two originals featuring traditional finger picking by Saskatoon’s the Local Group mingled with multi part harmonies reminiscent of folk greats of yesteryear.


Tickets to this Saturday November 20th show are $30 and are available at Pharmasave or online at eventbrite.com. Doors to The Lyric Theatre will open at 7:30pm and music starts at 8:30pm.

Blenders would like to thank Pharmasave for sponsoring this show.
