September 9, 2022 @ 11:00 pm
Down with Darby is a band from Summerside PEI, Canada. Members include brothers Jason Ellis – lead guitar/vocals, Chris Ellis – guitar/vocals, cousin Greg Ellis – bass guitar/vocals and great friend Steve Smith on drums. The band was formed in 2021. We play a mixed variety of genres and aim to appeal to a wide audience. In our live shows you will hear current country hits, classic rock, and a splash of punk/alternative. Come check us out!! Our biggest musical influences is none other than the men we call dad/uncle, “The Ellis Family Band”.
The name “Down with Darby” originates from the significance of a small street in hometown Summerside. Here, members attended Greenfield Elementary School. They attended their first music classes. Brothers Chris and Jason played their first ever live performance at a school variety show, singing CCR hit “bad moon rising”.
Lastly, Chris and Jason were born and raised on Darby Drive. Darby Drive was the site of street hockey games, games of “jailbreak”, capture the flag, and so much more. To make a long story short, it all happened and it all started on Darby Drive.
