The Gary Cain Band Rocks the Linsmore on a Friday night!

This Friday September 29th, the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is excited to bring in Canada's #1 Independent Blues Artist, The Gary Cain Band for a Friday night special! Originally Canadian guitar legend and guitarist for Burton Cummings, Tim Bovaconti was supposed to play, but due to illness he could not make the show. It's very difficult to find a proper replacement to the Tim Bovaconti Band and we believe we did that by bringing in one of the BEST guitar players you will ever see! We want everyone to see The Gary Cain Band now at the Linsmore Tavern in an intimate setting, because you will be seeing and hearing his name a lot in the future, that's how good he is! This is a MUST-SEE band for all guitar lovers, because Gary Cain has some of the best chops you will ever see! Some of the bands that has influenced Gary Cain's Blues music, include Eric Gales, Philip Sayce, Stevie Ray Vaughan, AC/DC, Danny Gatton, ZZ Top, Chris Duarte, Scott Henderson, Doyle Bramhall II, Greg Koch, Albert King, Albert Collins, and Jimi Hendrix! Come check out this guitar viruoso and see the band that is creating a ton buzz all throughout North America! The show starts at 9:30pm, $5 Cover at the door!
