Sam Weber band lays down a groove

 Sam Weber (not the same Sam Weber from the Weber Brothers Band) and his band returned to The Owl Acoustic lounge, Saturday, March 30 for an upbeat set of groovy folk rock.

The North Saanich, B.C. based Weber brought his hot trio, bassist Tyler Chester and drummer Don Heffington to rock the place while seated and while singing superb vocal harmonies.
 He played a bit a of country

music and added some subtle slide guitar throughout. He switched to acoustic  guitar then invited Evan Uschenko to add some extra electric guitar soloing and ambient sounds.

 Those songs reminded me of Danny Michel with the more exotic feel of Tri Continental.

 Weber noted he was excited to get warmed up for a big 20 date tour including a couple of American stops in Montana with the Lethbridge show.

“ I Know” was a highlight. Unfortunately I missed most of Danny Vacon’s opening set, but he was winding up with a big, soulful number before turning the stage over to Weber.
