Toronto-based trio Sunparlour Players charms audiences in lively performances loaded with winsome, folk-fuelled rock songs and disarming charisma. Like every band with its own line of homemade mustards, Sunparlour Players has blossomed from tomato-farm and Mennonite-choir origins, building a dedicated following with its rollercoaster live shows. Teamed with amicable players Michael “Rosie” Rosenthal and Dennis Van Dine, ringleader Andrew Penner leads his collaborative across rural landscapes of rustic pop, creating dustbowl ditties that John Steinbeck characters can dance to. This special performance christens the release of the trio’s third effort, Us Little Devils, an album that captures the athletic passion of the band’s live show so authentically, owners are advised to spray their stereos with antiperspirant.
