JULY 2020–On July 24, Surrey Civic Theatres presents the FUSIONpresents Artist Showcase featuring Ranj Singh and Sami Ghawi. This performance is part of SCT’s newly launched Digital Stage, an initiative to support local artists and performers that audiences can enjoy from the comfort and safety of their own homes.
This lively and upbeat show will include an hour of original songs and classic rock and folk favourites from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s, as the duo entertain you with their dancing guitars and harmony vocals. Tune in for an hour of live music streamed to the comfort of your own couch! These two good friends met at the 2018 Surrey Arts and Business Awards, and Sami was instantly mesmerized by Ranj's unique guitar style as well as his velvet voice.
FUSIONpresents, Ghawi’s company, manages the live entertainment at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel MIXT Lounge, and after hearing Ranj sing, he immediately booked him to perform there. This showcase will be the first time these two amazing artists perform a show together.
Ghawi, who has hosted the Sunday Night Jam at West Beach in White Rock for more than a decade, and is also a huge advocate for music and arts in Surrey, said he is thrilled to be a part of this new City of Surrey initiative. "I’m so grateful for this opportunity from the City of Surrey that gives artists the chance to perform and entertain the public.
Being offered a platform to perform and get paid when all our scheduled shows have been cancelled overnight is a huge blessing. I think audiences will enjoy an hour of quality entertainment that’s engaging, and one that’s also a community builder that brings us all together.
Shows like this are a window of connection, a way to enjoy company, music, and to communicate, which has high value for us all." Performing Arts Manager, Kent Gallie said, "Surrey Civic Theatres remains dedicated to providing the community with top quality performing arts presentations from the Digital Stage that they can enjoy in the safety and comfort of their own homes. We also continue to be committed to finding opportunities to support emerging and established local artists to continue to practice their craft professionally during this challenging time for all artists."
