This Thursday night, the Linsmore Tavern is excited to welcome an incredible 8 piece band that has a real cool sound, Masters of Love and Sound! Get ready for an incredible night of music, as it's not everyday the Linsmore brings in a 8 piece intricate band! Masters of Love and Sound is an 8-piece Toronto-based band dedicated to exploring new realms of instrumental Funk, Soul, Reggae, Latin and Afrobeat music. Throughout the grooves, the 3-piece horn section (Baritone Sax, Trombone, Soprano Sax/Flute) weaves a fabric of improvised jazz while the percussion players channel the rhythms of Africa and Latin America. The band plays a mix of originals and covers of diverse artists such as The Meters, Augustus Pablo, Fela Kuti, Ray Barretto, Manu Dibango, Willie Bobo and John Coltrane.  The shows include a video projection backdrop with VJ, Bruce La Becker, mixing up a visual jam to accompany the funky sounds. Warning: Side effects may include lightfeetedness and a compulsion to dance!
