Willis (Left) and Vern in action!
Introducing: Willis And Vern! I first came upon this musical act a few months ago when I met Willis Hiscock and found out he played country music with a fellow musician by the name of Vern Brown. The two men are veteran musicians and regularly play at banquets, weddings and parties. I will now let Willis tell us something about themselves and their music in his own words:
"Vern and I started playing the bars together about 5 years ago. These days we mostly work at bars in the GTA. We play in a little club in Brampton called the Eastern Passage, as well as Tommy's in Scarborough and The Newfoundlander, In Scarborough. But our musical roots and our passion for country, old rock and roll and down east music can be traced back to the east coast. We are both from Newfoundland and while I started entertaining music lovers around Newfoundland some 26 years ago, Vern has been playing the accordion since the age of five."
That chance meeting combined with their talent, make this duo a perfect fit for FOF. Expect to hear more about Willis and Vern as FOF Records takes on the music industry!
Willis And Vern!
