It has been a long, long time since the Linsmore Tavern has brought in a Bruce Springsteen Tribute Act, even though we get request after request to bring one in. So finally we are listening to your requests and we are bringing one in all the way from Montreal Quebec!! The Last of the Duke Street Kings - Tribute to Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street band will be trekking down the 401 from Montreal to Toronto on Friday March 20th to blow the roof off of the Linsmore Tavern! This 8 piece band is truly the most authentic and very best Tribute to the Boss in all of Canada and we are so excited to have them perform at the Linsmore!
This music is forever for me. It's the stage thing, that rush moment that you live for. It never lasts, but that's what you live for.
Just as the Boss says--they live for the moment when they break down that wall, reach the crowd and get you into the show. They feel so privileged to be able to do that, and when it happens--knowing that you are having a rockin’ good time--there is no better reward for us. That’s the essence of The Last of the Duke Street Kinds. They provide an experience that transcends the ordinary. If they were to sum up the spirit and performance aesthetic that drives the group, one word comes to mind: AUTHENTICITY. Eight (and sometimes more!) talented musicians who bring you Springsteen’s actual high-energy sound and performance dynamic--not just cover versions of the songs, but faithful reproductions of the Boss’ own studio and live versions. From the delicate, lightly textured introduction of Thunder Road to driving all-out power of Born to Run to the jazzy complexity of Jungleland, they lay everything on the line for you. This is the full package, and they are both pleased and proud to be able to deliver it to you!
