If you love a good live gig but don’t want to fork over your rent money to see a band play in an arena, we have some pretty fun alternatives that also help to support local musicians. Many of Surrey’s restaurants and pubs have live music nights to accompany a great brew or meal. Surrey even hosts a Summer Concert Series throughout the summer that bring all types of music to various parks around the city. Know of a sweet Surrey spot that’s supporting live music? We’d LOVE to hear about it!
Pubs & Restaurants
Grab a sleeve of a craft brew and enjoy the show at one of Surrey’s many pubs and restaurants who host open mic nights, live bands, and even a little karaoke if you want to jump in on the action. Live music at the White Hart Public House is a way of life, with performances every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and Karoake on Mondays and Tuesdays. The Taphouse in Guildford is known to host live music nights on Sundays, and they have DJs spinning your favourite tunes on Friday and Saturday nights. Looking for a good old rock show? Donegal’s Irish Pub is a favourite for live shows, and regularly hosts local bands and tribute bands. Wednesdays are live music days at the Clayton Public House, and also happens to be seafood night. Think plates heaping with crab claws, crab legs and jumbo prawns. Surrey’s Caribbean restaurant Di Reggae Cafe host live music nights that promise Caribbean music, live DJs, hip hop, and rhythm and blues! Settle in with a cocktail or whisky flight and enjoy live music events at South Surrey distillery Mainland Whisky. And don’t miss their fun “Name That Tune” events, where the folks from Red Rum Records play some vinyl and music trivia.
Live Music Events
If lounging in a beautifully manicured garden or park, with a picnic basket filled with goodies, while being serenaded sounds like perfection, then you’re not going to want to miss Surrey’s annual Sound of Summer Music Series. Every Wednesday during the summer, a concert is held in a different park in the city, with musical performances ranging from easy listening to folk music, and Caribbean fusion to big band jazz. And … it’s all free!
Surrey’s stages come to life with musical performances all year round. Spend your mornings being inspired by the Musical Mornings series of intimate performances, or settle in to a theatre seat at one of Surreys’ world-class venues and enjoy everything from classical and jazz to global and folk music.
Please note that depending on current provincial health orders, live music events, and dancing, may be on hold and we recommend checking with businesses directly.
