Please note: this concert has been cancelled. The band is still eager to perform, but is on the lookout for the right opportunity.

Long Jon Lev, headed by Canadian singer/songwriter Jonathan Ferguson, will be performing at the Lunchbox Theatre on May 14, 2016. Our very own David Andrew Wiebe will be on lead guitar and backing vocals.

Long Jon Lev last performed as a 10-piece ensemble at the Lantern Community Church in Inglewood on November 27, 2015, for the Telltale Heart release. This performance was met with much acclaim, and left a lasting impression on its audience who can’t wait to see them again.

The band continues to remain active in smaller configurations, but is finally back with another much-awaited larger lineup show. It may not be 10-piece this time, but it will be close, and the attitude will still be go big or go home.

If you are interested in hearing/seeing Long Jon Lev, we’ve posted several videos below for your convenience. Go ahead, take a look.

As you can see, the band is quite adept at different styles and brings a folk-rocking good time unlike just about anything else that’s out there.

The music is sometimes hard to explain. As result, if you follow Long Jon Lev on social media, you will probably see clever posters like these promoting the upcoming event:

“I don’t know what to call [the music]. Frolk? Rolock? Their words tell a story, but like, in the song. They don’t just sit around smoking while they tell me about some boring thing that happened in pretend Idaho.”

“The lyrics are really smart, and the music… I mean whenever I listen to it I just don’t know where it’s going to go. It would be folk if I knew where it was going to go. So it’s like folk with surprises. Good ones, I mean. It’s good surprise folk.”
