The Neil Young'uns Returns for their first show of 2017 and Their 20th Show at the Linsmore Tavern!

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.”
– Richard Trapunski –

“The absolute best Neil Young tribute band of all time…
Looks and sounds just like Neil Young and his band!”
– London Music Club

I Will Be King: Paying Tribute To The Genius of David Bowie Back to Rock the Linsmore Tavern!

The Linsmore Tavern is extremely excited to welcome back, I Will Be King: Paying Tribute To The Genius of David Bowie! I Will Be King have played two outstanding SOLD-OUT shows at the Linsmore Tavern and we are thrilled to have they come back! They had such an overwhelming response from their last 2 shows, that we have to bring them back for another one! There are a few Bowie Tributes out there, but none of them stand up to I Will Be King! Let's face the facts, David Bowie is one of the most influential artist's who has ever lived and he is a musical genius! This almost all-female 6 piece band will definitely deliver the goods of the music of David Bowie and if you are a fan of Bowie, do not miss this show! There really is no David Bowie Tribute out there, like them!

There are few Artists that have influenced so many aspects of pop culture than David Bowie, in style, fashion, musicality, performance and both genre and gender bending.

STILETTO FLATS began planning a very special tribute to David Bowie at the beginning of 2015. They had no idea that he would pass in 2016 (indeed, Bowie seemed to have an ethereal personality that would keep him with us for years to come).

With his death, the Flats have taken very special measures to present the best Bowie tribute possible, recognizing that there are few or no female-centric bands that would dare to undertake this. They present you, I Will Be King: Paying Tribute To The Genius of David Bowie!

The Band Features:

Elana Harte, vocals, guitar
Lucio Agostini, backs, guitar
Janet Whiteway, backs, keyboards
Jen Benton, bass
Robyn McDonald, drums
Jennifer Brewer, percs, backs

Tickets for this amazing show are now on sale and are only $7 in advance, $10 at the door! You can purchase your tickets at the Linsmore Tavern or right here: BUY TICKETS!!
