Friday May 26th, The Linsmore Tavern can't wait to welcome back for their first show of 2017, our favourite Neil Young Tribute Band, The Neil Young'uns! The Neil Young'uns are without a doubt the biggest drawing band in the 83 year history of the Linsmore Tavern! They have played 19 straight, consecutive Sell-Out show at the Linsmore Tavern and this show is going to be number 20! There is a reason why they have had such great success at the Linsmore, as well as every other venue that they play at! They are an amazing band and will play Neil Young better then Neil Young himself! Note for note perfection and they strive to put on a perfect show every time they play! They even take requests! If you are a fan of Neil Young, they are a MUST-SEE and the atmosphere at their live shows is an experience in itself!
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!”
