CoveredinCash: Johnny Cash Tribute Live at the Linsmore Tavern!

Saturday January 21st, the Linsmore Tavern is full of anticipation to welcome for the very first time, CoveredinCash: Johnny Cash Tribute! We have heard so many amazing things about this band and all or their legendary shows at the An Sibin, that we had to get them in for a night!  They are not just any Johnny Cash Tribute Band, they are the Best Johnny Cash Cover Band in Canada!

Featuring Rick Aulier as Johnny Cash who happened to own the very popular Irish Bar on Queen Street - An Sibin, where CoveredinCash played many capacity filled and memorable shows over the years at this popular bar! Rick Aulier doesn't try to be an impersonator of Johnny Cash, but if you closed your eyes and started the set by saying, "Hello I'm Johnny Cash", for one fitting moment you would fee you just heard the voice of the man in black. His contagious banter on stage draws you in and every now and then, when it gets more rockabily than country, Rick Aulier tones it down with heartfelt ballads like the swan song of Cash, "Hurt".

 CoveredinCash has a great line-up of musicians, on lead guitar sending out Allman-esque solos is James Quinn. On bass guitar seasoned, Richard Bunnyboils holds the fort with a solid beat and great background oohs and ahhs. On acoustic guitar is Tom Price, almost looking too young to know the tunes, but obviously embraces them with great gusto and has a magnetic stage presence partnered with solid rhythms. Price also has background vocals that blend well with Aulier. On drums, the only Irish part of the band is Conor Garrity, who keeps a solid hold on the backbeat of the show. Well respected keyboardist Herve Basset who has played with everyone in Toronto's music scene rounds out this impressive group of musicians!

Covered in Cash is a great tribute to a great artist! This show is definitely going to be a SELL-OUT, so get your tickets now! Tickets are only $5 in advance, $10 at the door! You can buy tickets at the bar or here: BUY TICKETS!!

There has been a ton of requests and a ton of buzz surrounding the 1977 Punk Night featuring The Jammed Tribute to The Jam, The Gabba Heys Tribute to The Ramones and Blondee's Tribute to Blondie!  That's right, on Friday January 20th, these 3 tributes are returning to the Linsmore Tavern for a night of `1970's punk rock! If you have seen them before, you know how cool of a show it is and the vibe is amazing!  Some world class musicians are in these 3 bands and they bring an incredible show to the stage, whenever they play!

Formed in 2013, THE JAMMED is a tribute act to punk/mod-revival band THE JAM. Playing lightening-fast covers, this Toronto-based trio recreates the high-energy and style of The Jam in the late 1970's, wearing tailored suits rather than ripped clothes. The trio was known for their melodic pop songs, strong harmonies, distinctive English flavour and mod image. Their music is infused with beat music, soul, rhythm and blues, psychedelic rock, as well as 1970's punk and new wave. THE JAMMED are: Cleave Anderson (formerly of Blue Rodeo), drums; Lucas Stagg (Lucas Stagg band) on bass and vocals, and Richard McCarthy (aka Filthy Rich), vocals and guitar.

For all of you Ramones fans, there will be a set of music by the GABBA HEYS!  The GABBY HEYS feature / Lucas Vulcan on guitar/backing vocals, Cleave Anderson on drums, and Lucas Stagg on bass/lead vocals.

Formed in 2014, BLONDEE is a tribute act to American rock band Blondie, founded by Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. Blondie was a pioneer in the early American new wave and punk scenes of the mid 1970s. BLONDEE is a four piece act that scales down the hits and earlier punk songs of Blondie to their bare bones, working with only vocal, one guitar, bass and drums. Sara Dishart captures the power and sultriness of Harry's voice, in addition to being inspired by Blondie's style and dress on stage. BLONDEE are: Sara Dishart, vocals; Cleave Anderson, drums, Lucas Stagg, bass and vocals; Richard McCarthy (aka Filthy Rich), guitar and vocals.
