Robbie Rox and The Power Quintet Live!

Friday April 28, the Linsmore Tavern is very excited to welcome back Robbie Rox and his Power Quintet for another their yearly live show at the Linsmore Tavern!  Robbie Rox and The Power Quintet has played some amazing shows in the past at the Linsmore Tavern and his reputation as a top notch performer is definitely deserved!  It is always a real special show when Robbie Rox performs at the Linsmore Tavern, as he does not play many shows in Toronto, so when he does make sure you come out!

The in-yer-face satirical and often scatological music and over-the-top stage persona of Robbie Rox may not be to everyone’s taste, but it sure seems to strike a chord with his fellow Toronto artists.

While by today’s standards his stuff may seem somewhat tame, back in the early seventies Rox’s proto-Punk nothing-sacred satire was considered by many to be a dire threat to the morals of the younger generation.

When Rox began his musical odyssey to become, as he’s been described, “Canada’s answer to Frank Zappa” (before he was even familiar with Zappa’s outrageous compositions) 40 years ago, he shocked and awed many with his daring and delightful humour –and impressed many others with the deft musicianship that he also brings to his work.

Shows with his multi-piece Monster Horn Band were notable as much for their musical prowess as for his provocative lyrics. And his ability to span several vocal octaves, combined with an uncanny knack for capturing voices of various characters, helped make Rox more than just a novelty act in the minds of other performers and fans alike. -Gary 17
