The Kwerks are coming to Mission with their energy-packed tunes on Saturday

It’s going to be a ‘Kwerky’ show

The Kwerks will open the Mission Coffee House Concert Series season at the Clarke Theatre’s Cafetorium on Oct. 8.

A Langley-based duo fronted by Laura and Ryan Koch, The Kwerks  are descending upon the fine folk of Mission with their energy-packed tunes on Saturday, Oct. 8. They’ll be opening up the Mission Coffee House Concert Series season at the Clarke Theatre’s Cafetorium.

The Kwerks have made quite a splash in the Fraser Valley this summer with their original folk-pop music that has a twist of bluegrass. The music, written by Laura, is rhythmic and peppy, and gets the crowd moving. Infused with lyrics about love, loss, relationships and life itself, the music stands on its own as a fresh and unique offering to the listener.

“It’s so much fun making the audience laugh,” said Laura. “I don’t know which I like better, the music or the connection we experience with the crowd between the songs!”

The pair released their debut EP in April of this year that kicks off with their crowd favourite, Freight Train, and are set to record again in October.

The Kwerks have made their way from stage to stage throughout the summer, playing at Party in the Park 2016 in Chilliwack, at the Fraser Valley Music Awards at the Abbotsford Arts Centre, at Tractorgrease Cafe in Chilliwack and they’re looking forward to sharing their music with the music lovers of Mission.

Admission is $5 at the door, and the evening begins at 7 p.m. with an open mic, followed by an hour set by The Kwerks.
