Hailing from North Preston, The Sanctified Brothers (formerly known as the Deep River Boys) have quickly established themselves as one of the best gospel music groups in Canada. They have performed with the Gospelheirs, the Hallelujah Praise Choir and the late Rita MacNeil.

The Sanctified Brothers group is comprised of Reverend Wallace Smith Senior, Wallace Smith Junior, Danna Wills, Mike Smith, Marlowe Smith, Shawn Downey and JR Smith. Together, they are shaking up the perceptions of gospel music with fresh twists on classics, which they infuse with elements of blues, funk and rock.

Quote from Wallace Smith, "It's awesome, because it's gospel music, but it's not your traditional gospel music. Sometimes we'll do a traditional song, but we always try to add some variety to it. There's never a dull moment."

This is a free public event, everyone is welcome.

Doors open at 6:30pm with the performance starting at 7:00pm
