The Hard Toms w Secret Wars and Parks at Night Live at the Linsmore Tavern!Saturday, 04 May 2019 21:30 Linsmore Tavern
Saturday May 4th is going to be an extremely fun and unique night of music as the Linsmore Tavern is bringing in 3 very high energy bands who are ready to tear down the roof! The Hard Toms will be returning to the Linsmore after many requests and will be performing their very unique tribute to Sex Symbol Tom Jones but with a punk rock sound! Also performing for the very first time at the Linsmore Tavern, is the uniquely sounding punk rock band, Secret Wars! We have heard tremendous things about this band and we can't wait for them to bring their show to the Linsmore! Parks at Night are not pop, but are pop and not punk, but are punk! This will be a fun night that you will absolutely would love to be apart of! Top notch musicians, putting on a top notch show!
Headlining this evening will be The Hard Toms who will be playing a high energy, punked up set-list of Welsh singer and legend Tom Jones! They have played on some amazing bills in the past and every time they perform they have blown everyone in attendance away. This band is really a MUST-SEE live show! Tom Jones became one of the most popular vocalists to emerge from the mid-1960s. Since then, he has sung many forms of popular music – pop, rock, R&B, show tunes, country, dance, soul music and gospel – and sold over 100 million records. This is kind of ironic, as Tom Jones has dabbled into almost every style of music, except for punk rock, who The Hard Toms will absolutely entertain you with their cool variations of Tom Jones's classics! Tom Jones has had thirty-six Top 40 hits in the United Kingdom and nineteen in the United States; some of his notable songs include "It's Not Unusual", "What's New Pussycat", "Delilah", "Green, Green Grass of Home", "She's a Lady", "Kiss", and "Sex Bomb". The band features: Chris LaBonte (guitar), Steve Whitehouse (bass and lead vocals), Chris Parkins (drums) and Raphaël Désilets (trumpet)!
The combined accomplishments of Secret Wars members include a multitude of tour dates across America, Canada and Europe, as well as international releases on Deleted Art (Sweden), Woog Riots (Germany), Blocks Recording Club (Toronto), Bummed Tapes (UK), Inyrdisc (Toronto), Fromscratch (Italy) and Teenage USA (Toronto). As the name implies, Secret Wars draws upon themes of unrest, psychosis and dystopia under a musical backdrop of proto-punk and electronic genres, citing influences as The Ex, CAN, Talking Heads, Liars, The Fall, Add N to X, Thee Oh Sees, Stooges, VU, Devo, LCD Soundsystem, Duchess Says, Wire, Simply Saucer, Suicide, and hundreds more from the postpunk, no wave, funk, garage, psych, electro, electronic, goth, dub, rock, avant-garde, and pop movements world-wide.
