The Neil Young'uns Return to the Linsmore Tavern for the first time in 2018!!Saturday, 03 March 2018 21:30 Linsmore Tavern
It feels like it's been ages since the Linsmore Tavern has had The Neil Young'uns play a show! Our favourite band will make their triumphed return to the Linsmore for the first time in 2018 on Saturday March 3rd and we couldn't be any more excited to have this amazing band back again! This will be their 22nd show at the Linsmore, their previous 21 shows have been all SELL-OUTS! Come check out what is one of the best live-shows that you will ever see and the amazing atmosphere whenever the Neil Young'uns hit the stage at the Linsmore Tavern!
The Neil Young’uns is a small but mighty collective of five friends, brought together by the animation/ film and art business, all artists and musicians in their own right, who share a love of roots, rock and jazz music and a great respect for the songwriting and vast musical catalogue of Canuck rock icon Neil Young.
What began in Toronto’s Cadillac Lounge as a long term residency, as much performance art as bar band has now expanded to the most musically discerning stages in Ontario such as the famed Sound Academy, Oakville’s Moonshine Cafe and The London Music Club.
The band’s performances are propelled by lead singer Larry Cariou, whose resemblance both musically and physically has been termed by first time audience members as ‘spooky’, and by the searing guitar improvisations of Steve Whitehouse, who pays keen respect towards Neil Young’s ferocious stage ramblings and takes them in new improvisational directions nightly…
Backing them up, Denis Gonzalez switches fluidly between bass, keys, guitar and banjo, from rhythm ace to newgrass plucker to lyrical conductor on “Man Needs a Maid”…A musicologist in every sense…
Following suit, Trudy Binder is as at ease with keys or the bass as she is with her legendarily powerful vocals on such classic anthems as “Motorcycle Mama”…
Drummer Geordie Millar mines Neil Young’s broad stable of recorded drummers to build, and expand on, established ‘pockets’ and parts with his background in roots, rock and blues drumming.
As a group the band strive to recreate musical gold from across Young’s varied recording and performing career while opening up fresh avenues for interpretation, always looking for something new in the music with each performance, within each venue and with each unique new audience.
“This Toronto-based Tribute is f#cking note perfect.”

“The absolute best Neil Young tribute band of all time…
Looks and sounds just like Neil Young and his band!”
