Friday November 10th, the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is exciting to welcome for the very first time, a band that we have heard so many good things about, Blackdog Ballroom! We are really looking forward to this show as Blackdog Ballroom is one of the best original bands in Toronto who know how to put on an incredible live show and have been nominated best live band in Toronto on 3 seperate occasions by Toronto Independent Music Awards! A very unique band, who have a British influenced sound, music fans this is a show that you don't want to miss, especially because this band does not play very often in the East End! The show starts at 9:30pm, $5 Cover at the door!
Blackdog Ballroom's performances are high octane celebrations filled with heart and soul delivering an invitation to once again believe in Rock & Roll keeping their ever growing fan base coming back for more!
“They played an energetic show playing some really tight well constructed radio friendly songs. Highly recommend seeing this band live.”

“It’s finally here! Blackdog Ballroom have released their debut album, and it’s a hot one. The Mod-fueled band from Richmond Hill, Ontario, have built quite a reputation in the Toronto live music scene. Finally that energy and superb songwriting talent gets channeled into an album!”

The music….somewhere between rock, mod, punk and pop….a combination that keeps you moving and, yes, dancing.

"Although they declare being influenced by Brit-Pop bands such Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and The Jam, Blackdog Ballroom strive to make a sound of their own while demonstrating Stanfield’s songwriting prowess."

“Very tight and well structured, seems like a band who knows what they’re doing!”
