Cadre Returns to Rock The Linsmore Tavern!

Thursday September 14th, the Linsmore Tavern (1298 Danforth Ave) is excited to welcome back, the very talented and original band, Cadre! We love hearing great original bands and Cadre is definitely no exception! Fans of Roots driven, original music with thoughtful lyrics, then this is the band for you! Come support this local talent, the show starts at 8:30pm, there is no cover!

Cadre is five seasoned musicians playing a potent mixture of “original, lyric-driven, uprooted roots” as well as their own take on the music of Bruce Springsteen, The Band, Warren Zevon, Ry Cooder, John Hiatt, Daniel Lanois, Bob Dylan and Robbie McIntosh. Members of Cadre have won 2nd Grand Prize Overall in The USA Songwriting Competition, played everywhere from The Bluebird Café in Nashville to The Hillside Festival and opened for everyone from John Lee Hooker to The Tragically Hip.

The music of Cadre has (as one music critic noted) “the potential to heal a world suffering from insipid popular music."

Cadre is:
Bill Colgate - lead vocals & harmonica
Cam MacInnes - guitars & mandolin
Joey Gaitanis - guitars & vocals
Jeff Dunk - bass
Rob Greenway (aka brilliant fish) - drums & vocals

The Neil Young'uns Live at the Linsmore Tavern!!

With their 20th straight Sell-Out at the Linsmore Tavern earlier this year, the Neil Young'uns return to the Linsmore Tavern on Saturday September 9th coming right off of the Summer holidays!

Here are some cool stats about The Neil Young'uns:

The Neil Young'uns First Show at the Linsmore Tavern was in December of 2011

Since then they have played 20 shows at the Linsmore Tavern

20 Straight Sell-Outs

More then 2500 people have seen the Neil Young'uns at the Linsmore Tavern

They are the most popular band in the history of the Linsmore Tavern

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 – resonancity.com

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