Songs of Summer - Evening Event

Date: Saturday August 27, 2022
Location: Gateway Grove - On the lawn outside Gateway Theatre (6500 Gilbert Rd)

Following the success of last year’s sold-out performances at Songs of Summer, we are back outdoors and in-person with more melody and cheer. For the afternoon event, we are inviting families to enjoy a live performance and kid-friendly activities. For the evening event, it’s time for the adults to relax, unwind, and enjoy a nice summer concert (perhaps even with an adult beverage in hand).

Evening Event: 7:00-8:15 PM

Doors open: 6:15 PM
Tickets: $30

There’s no better way to soak up the last days of summer than enjoying live music in the great outdoors with your favourite people. Bring your picnic blankets or chairs and take a respite among the trees for a magical evening filled with Motown tunes from Krystle Dos Santos and her three-piece band. Get ready for an entertaining show celebrating the Motown era of music, including original songs “Walk on Through” and “Better”, and classic feel-good tunes “Higher and Higher” by Jackie Wilson, “My Girl” by the Temptations, “Just the Two of Us” by Bill Withers and Grover Washington Jr., and more, guaranteed to transport the audience to the good ol' days. Can't wait to see Krystle? Take a peek at her YouTube channel for her other performances!

Enjoy the sweet sunset serenade with a glass of wine or beer from our concession for the perfect summer night out.


Meet the Artist

Krystle Dos Santos is a Vancouver-based soul, jazz, and R&B singer. Krystle’s extraordinary voice, commanding, powerful and rich, has won her two Western Canadian Music Awards. Her music, inspired by classic, neo-soul combined with smooth R&B elements, is elegant, bold, and sensual, similar to modern legends Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley.
