See the band says is “red hot and ready to roll” and the Nashville Blues Society calls “dynamite!”

The Vernon Jazz Club will be howling this Halloween when The Kirby Sewell Band takes over the stage.

Come in your costume and feel the energy of three vocalists and two guitars on top of drums and bass.

This band has a full sound that is bound to have you grooving all night.

Sewell will be rocking the stage with Neil Gunhold (guitar and vocals), Morgan Turk (guitar and vocals), Jim Johnston (drums), and Jae Cho (bass guitar).

Sewell, pronounced “soul,” was born to sing. This big blues shouter, who stands six-foot-six-inches tall, belts out tunes that are a mix of rock, country, and of course the blues. His sound has been compared to Joe Cocker, The Commitments and Otis Redding.

The band’s sound has been heard across North America on SiriusXM, Galaxy, and on CBC’s Saturday Night Blues. They had two #1 hits on Canada’s Roots Music Report, a #2 on Alberta’s CKUA and were added as Pick to Click on B.B King’s Bluesville on SiriusXM.

They have had press highlights in No Depression (USA), !Earshot (Canada), Rocks (Germany), and RELIX (NYC) and have shared the stage with Colin James, The Bedouin Soundclash, Burton Cummings, Blue Rodeo and many more.
