Strand’s hosts Marty and Eli to kick off the long weekend

Father and son duo perform live in downton Invermere

Strand’s Old House Restaurant is pleased to announce they will be hosting father and son duo Marty and Eli Beingessner on Friday, November 10th at 7 p.m. The pair of musicians are a fixture at local events, delighting audiences in the Columbia Valley with their unique mix of classic rock, country, folk and original music.

It was in the stars for the pair to become a sensation with Eli following in his father Marty’s footsteps and with music being in the family’s blood. Marty began his foray into the world of music upon his mother’s insistence that everyone in the family take up an instrument. Marty gravitated toward the guitar and never looked back, much like his son, and when they joined forces a new sound emerged that has been stirring up the Valley ever since.

Marty plays by ear and was once kicked out of band in school for not reading music. But this particular trait is part of the reason the band is so interesting to watch as they entertain crowds with soulful and original performances.

The pair are complementary, with Marty leaning toward legends like Johnny Cash for inspiration and Eli with his wild bluesy sound. The combination of Marty’s relaxed flow and Eli’s untamed energy makes for a unique sound and one residents in the Valley don’t want to miss.

“They usually pull a decent crowd and it’s a good way to start the long weekend — they have a bluesy sound and they get everybody fired up,” said organizer Tony Wood.

There is a $5 cover charge upon entry and the family-friendly event is open to all looking for good food and some great entertainment.
