The Suffers at The Imperial in Vancouver

Where: The Imperial (319 Main St, Vancouver)
When: Monday June 24, 2019 at 9:00pm
Tickets: Available online now »

Coming in hot out of Houston, Texas, The Suffers pack elements of reggae, jazz, salsa, rock, and hip hop into their trademark Gulf Coast soul. Brimming with contagious grooves, combustible energy and Kam Franklin’s powerhouse voice, this is “soul, straight from horn to heart” (NPR).

“The sort of neo-retro group you never knew music was so badly missing” (Spin Magazine), eight-piece wonder-band The Suffers are a fired-up, contemporary version of the great R&B/funk bands of ‘70s and ‘80s like Earth, Wind & Fire, Rufus, and Kool & The Gang.

The TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival will take place June 21 to July 1, 2019and will be held in multiple locations across Vancouver. With 1,800 artists, 300 performances, 35 venues, and 150+ free shows – this annual event is not to be missed. Follow along on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter to get the latest updates #VanJazzFest.
