Mayhemingways at The Sunset Saloon May 2, 2018!

Tell the Band to Go Home & The Sunset Saloon proudly present:

Mayhemingways (mayhemingways.wordpress.com)
at The Sunset Saloon (house concert in Westwood)
Wednesday, May 2, 2018
7:30
Suggested donation $20 (price flexible, all proceeds to this amazing duo!)

If you wish, bring a drink for yourself, and/or a snack to share, but we’ve always got plenty of all of those on hand!

All are welcome (bring the kids, friends, family, people off the street, whatever)! Our house is family friendly (we’ve got 3 kids, a trampoline, and plenty of room, so feel free to bring the family), easy-going, friendly, and open to all! If you don’t know us yet, come on down and make some new friends!

The Sunset Saloon is a house concert venue in Westwood (near the YMCA on Portage.) We’re open to all. Feel free to pass along the event info, bring friends, bring your kids (our kids will thank you), or just come by yourself and make some new friends! Admission is by donation, which goes directly to the artists. Most folks pay $20, but these hard working guys wouldn’t turn down more.

Please RSVP for the address and more information!

Questions? RSVP? Fill out the contact form below! Forward this to a friend!

The boys are back for their 4th visit to The Sunset Saloon with their new album Skip Land in tow! They recently played to a jam-packed Times Change(d) High & Lonesome Club (so packed that even Sunset Saloon proprieters were left out in the cold!) and have been playing to similarly packed houses across Western Canada. We’d love to have a packed house of our own on May 2! In order to do that, we’ll need 2 things:

1) A second round NHL playoff schedule that has the Jets OFF that night (PLEASE!)
2) YOU!

You should know by now how great the Mayhemingways live show is. If not, shame on you! But we’re here to help. Come on down and see what a glorious noise two guys can make!

I know that Winnipeg is overwhelmed by hockey fever. I get that. But those multi-millionaires don’t need or appreciate you nearly as much as these hard-working, independent musicians do! They rely on your support to keep them doing what they do best. Please join us if you can and spread the word about these shows because we’re always looking for fresh faces at The Sunset Saloon!

Here’s Benj’s contribution to the recent Willie P Bennett cover challenge:

Feel free to fill out the contact form below if you have any questions or if you want to reserve your seat (your details aren’t public, just emailed directly to me.)
