Friday August 4th, the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is so excited to bring in the Ayden Jacobs Project for a night of Hard Rockin', Guitar Shreddin' music featuring 17 year old guitar prodigy Ayden Jacobs! If you have not heard of Ayden Jacobs before, get use to the name because you will be hearing it a lot for a very long time! Ayden Jacobs is without a doubt one of Canada's brightest up and coming talents. He's already accomplished so many things at such a young age and has alligned himself with some of Rock 'N Roll's real Heavyweights. Ayden Jacobs is a real throwback to a time where young musicians aspired to be Rockstars and worked extremely hard to make guitar magic, which is very rare nowadays. If you have not seen this young, guitar virtuoso, there is not a better place then to see him at the Linsmore Tavern on Friday August 4th! He will be performing the whole night with his fantastic band playing a variety of covers, as well as some of his original music. This is going to be a very memorable night with one of the best up and coming talent in Canada! DON'T MISS IT!
Ayden picked up his first guitar when he was 4 years old. He has always loved listening to music and playing his guitar. When he was 7 years old, on a camping trip with his family, he was able to play his first gig at the local bar. He has always been a fan of classic rock and continued to learn on his own. When he was 9 years old he asked for guitar lessons. Ayden’s early influence and first inspiration was Slash. Soon after that first lesson he began attending weekly jams at the local pub where he met many great musicians over the years. He has jammed weekly since and over the last 5 years he has jammed weekly with Juggernaut Jam Band, which is led by Andy Narsingh. Andy, who plays bass and produced Ayden’s first EP took Ayden under his wing and has not only mentored him but encouraged him to record his first EP. This has been an incredible experience and an amazing way to learn and grow as a musician. In 2013 he was selected by Kim Mitchell as the lead guitarist for the “Kid Mitchell Band”. They opened for Kim Mitchell in May 2014 and Ayden continued to play with them for the next couple of years. He has since started writing his own music and started The Ayden Jacobs Band, which features not only his original tunes but many covers as well. In 2016 he was featured in the Discovery Winter 2016 podcast by Al Joynes as an up and coming young artist. One of his original songs “Mood Swings” was featured on the show. Ayden has had the opportunity to fill in as guitarist for a few bands over the years (Jackson X, Marc Joseph Band). He has also worked with Dave Langguth (Nelly Furtado, Kim Mitchell) as well as Michale Vassos. Ayden released his first EP on August 1, 2016 with Andy Narsingh(Dave Barrett Trio) and Mike Thorne (SAGA). He has been lucky enough in life to have found his passion at a very young age. He would love to be the next generation of rock and bring this genre of music back to the forefront.
The show starts at 9:30pm, there's a $5 cover! The band features Dave Langguth on drums, Andy Narsingh on bass and Ayden Jacobs on guitar and lead vocals!
