The Neil Young'uns Live at the Linsmore Tavern for First show of 2016!

Saturday February 6th, mark that date on your calendar for all you Neil Young fans, as the world's best Neil Young Tribute makes their return to the Linsmore Tavern for their first show of 2016! They have had 14 consecutive sell outs in a row at the Linsmore Tavern and this show will surely be the same! You are not going to find a better atmosphere and a better night of music in a bar that night, so be a part of this magical show!  Every show that the play is different from the last, as they know all of Neil's catalogue from every era and band! They even take requests!

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.”
– Richard Trapunski – resonancity.com
 
 “The absolute best Neil Young tribute band of all time…
Looks and sounds just like Neil Young and his band!”
– London Music Club
 
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased for $7 in advance and $15 at the door!  Don't wait, get your tickets now!!! You can buy your tickets at the bar or right here: BUY TICKETS!!
