Mark Sultan Gus Pub, Halifax NS October 19
Published Oct 20, 2010My names Mark Sultan, Im going to play rocknroll-type music, Mark Sultan said, tongue-in-cheek, with a fresh new edge. Sultan proceeded to attack his guitar with his turbocharged doo-wop, waking up the Tuesday night crowd and turning rocknroll inside out. Sultan tore through his set, bridging the gaps between Dion and the Belmonts and contemporary garage punk. Breaking into an a cappella bridge, he performed possibly the only a cappella rendition ever done in Gus Pub. As the crowd got rowdy, Sultan stopped playing and told them off: This isnt Edgefest! He picked up the guitar again and went on to play through about six encores or so.
