In 2010 Chelsea D.E. Johnson and Adam Farnsworth started a bi-monthly showcase called Sunday’s Best. They took on the name and two players: the multi-instrumentalist Ashton Sweet on the baritone saxophone and the well-toured percussionist Kenan Sungur on drums. The night became a local hit and the band grew tighter as they prepared new material for each show. In 2011 the group changed their name to High Society and brought their material to Mushroom Records and CBC Studio 2 to record their self-titled, debut album. They have featured as a main act at the Robson Valley Music Festival and Arts Wells, backed burlesque troupes, rocked house parties,cafés, bars and theatres across Western Canada and are eager to make the leap to the East Coast tour circuit.High Society is based out of Vancouver, B.C.
