Sin City Boys Return to the Linsmore!

It's been over a year since we have had the Sin City Boys play at the Linsmore Tavern, but finally after many requests we are excited to bring them back this Friday night!  One of Toronto's legendary bands, the Sin City Boys have been a Toronto staple since 1992 and are known for their incredible live show!

Take a generous serving of Gram Parsons, add a heap of Keith Richards, season with some Elvis Presley and a pinch of Hank Sr., blend it together with some real sounding guitars and vocals and you've got The Sin City Boys. They have been called "Country Thrash" by Now Magazine, and were described as sounding like "The Rolling Stones in a bad mood" by Lenny Stoute of The Toronto Star.

Featuring songwriter and vocalist Kevin Jollimore and guitarist Gerard Popma, The Sin City Boys have received excellent reviews for their live show, "They play a selection of strong, simple and effective songs that threaten to put the excitement back into barroom rock." according to Performer Magazine. The Sin City Boys are fleshed out by Anthony Amodeo on bass guiatr and Glenn Kimberley on drums.

The band has released three CDs, the critically aclaimed debut albumTemptation Road, and the follow up, Double Production. They have recently released their third CD, Los Muchachos De Pecado, and a live CD, Live At The Rockpile.Temptation Road met with excellent reviews and was called "one of the best releases of it's kind" by The Toronto Star. Music from The Sin City Boys CDS has become a staple on American television specialty channels, and can be heard on shows such as Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Deadwood, and TNN's The Class Of...

The show starts at 9:30pm, there will be a $5 cover at the door!  If you haven't seen these guys, make sure you come out to see one of Toronto's best bands!

Danforth Blues Band Live!

Thursday August 6th the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is welcoming a band and there couldn't be a more fitting name for a band then The Danforth Blues Band! These guys are a real seasoned band of incredible musicians who know how to play the Blues! You will absolutely love this local band who call the Danforth their home! No Cover, the show starts at 8pm!

A couple of years ago, during a neighbourhood BBQ (in the Danforth & Coxwell area of Toronto), a few guys realized they had a common link - besides being old – they had played in bar bands during their much younger days. This led them to dust off their “tools of the trade” and regularly get together over a pint (cleverly disguised as jam sessions).

This evolved over time, into a core group of 5 members who enjoy playing songs based on “traditional' blues” arrangements. The geography of the band’s origin & primary musical preference accounts for the band’s name, although renaming it continues to be a favourite post-jam past time to this day.

The band members are; Renzo Cincinnato - lead vocals, Ron Winn – harp & vocals, Lou Fata – drums, vocals & band manager (drew the short straw), Dave Scheel - bass and Patrick Alleyne - lead guitar.

The show starts at 8pm and there is no cover! Come support some amazing local talent and some great blues!
