Freeman Dre And The Kitchen Party Back at the Linsmore Tavern!

Friday January 11th 2019 the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is excited to welcome back one of Canada's best up and coming bands, Freeman Dre And The Kitchen Party! This Original-Romantic-Offkilter-CityFolk-Rock’n’roll-Songs from a kitchen in Parkdale, is gaining recognition as one of the best live bands in the country and their original music makes is turning a lot of heads! Freeman Dre, played the Linsmore a couple of times in 2018 and man do these guys know how to put on a show! We received a ton of requests to bring this band back to the East for another one and we can't wait to see them on the Linsmore's stage! Music fans, don't miss this show as Freeman Dre And The Kitchen Party does not play many shows east of Yonge Street, so this is going to be really cool to introduce them to the east side of Toronto! With lyrical dexterity that spurs fitting (albeit tired) comparison to the holy triumvirate: Dylan, Waits, and Cohen, Freeman Dre is modern street-wise troubadour. This is an exciting night that we know all of our hardcore music fans will enjoy and appreciate! The show starts at 9:30pm, there will be a $5 cover charge!

ROCKJAW Rocks the Linsmore Tavern!

This Saturday January 5th, the Linsmore Tavern is excited to welcome a new band that has some fantastic musicians and credentials, ROCKJAW! This is going to be a really fun night of music and we can't wait to see what this new band is ready to bring to the Linsmore stage! Music fans this is a night you will want to be a part of!

Established in late 2017, ROCKJAW brought together four musicians who have all been heavily involved in Canada’s live music scene for the better part of the last 25 years. The members have been involved in everything from national tours to extensive studio recording in Toronto-based facilities such as Phase One Studios, and have found a common bond with each other in their shared passion for live performance. Since its inception, ROCKJAW has carved out a catalogue of tunes stretching across almost four decades. Bringing something for everyone, you’ll catch the band rocking tunes from the 80s that range from Beastie Boys to Ozzy; they delve into the 90s with hits from the alt-rock/grunge scene including Pearl Jam and STP while also covering some more rarely heard bands like Spacehog. ROCKJAW’s list goes on and on into the 2000s as they continue to add songs to their repertoire. To date the band has performed at number of locations across the GTA including multiple dates at The Rockpile, as well as being hired for private event performances like Duxbury Cider’s (an Ontario-based cider company) anniversary/annual client appreciation bash. In addition to delivering a high-energy, entertaining show, ROCKJAW loves surprising their audience with certain tunes and sending them away saying “…wow, I just heard an awesome cover of ______, I’ve never heard anyone rock that before!!”
Expect the unexpected

ROCKJAW is: Mike Staniforth (Lead Vocals), Mike Delaney (Lead Guitar), J.D. Bass (Bass Guitar, Backing Vocals), Neil Morrison (Drums, Percussion).
