The older they get, the harder they rock.
Sonic Elder is a unique theatrical experience that features a six-piece band of diverse performers—all aged between 65 and 75 years old—playing music that inspired them as young people. This band was created for this specific event. The musical numbers are mixed with their personal stories about discovering music, major life changes, sex, the beginnings of the anti-war movement, Vancouver’s music culture in the 1950s and early 60s and what it’s like to be a rocker in the body of a senior.
Produced in association with Holding Space Productions
