Marq DeSouza returns to play with family and friends

It is always great to see Vancouver based singer songwriter Marq DeSouza when he visits his old friends and family in George DeSouza with Shane Love and Marq DeSouza. Photo by Richard AmeryLethbridge.

I arrived half way through his set, May 13 at the Owl, which started on time at 9 p.m., so unfortunately missed most of it, but caught the essence of his upbeat folk rock flavoured set.

His voice sounds a lot like Al Harlow, the lead singer of classic rockers Prism and even kind of looks like him.

He started off with just his acoustic guitar but later welcomed  Shane Love to the stage to play some drums.

As a special bonus he invited his dad, George, up on stage to play a sweet, surf tinged Joe Satriani instrumental called “Sleepwalker,” leaving the junior DeSouza to lay back and set down a rhythm.

Spencer Joe was also on the bill , but I missed most of that other than a set closing version of the Pogues “Dirty Old Town,” which sounded excellent with some violin.
