It's been over a year since we have had the Sin City Boys play at the Linsmore Tavern, but finally after many requests we are excited to bring them back this Friday night! One of Toronto's legendary bands, the Sin City Boys have been a Toronto staple since 1992 and are known for their incredible live show!
Take a generous serving of Gram Parsons, add a heap of Keith Richards, season with some Elvis Presley and a pinch of Hank Sr., blend it together with some real sounding guitars and vocals and you've got The Sin City Boys. They have been called "Country Thrash" by Now Magazine, and were described as sounding like "The Rolling Stones in a bad mood" by Lenny Stoute of The Toronto Star.
Featuring songwriter and vocalist Kevin Jollimore and guitarist Gerard Popma, The Sin City Boys have received excellent reviews for their live show, "They play a selection of strong, simple and effective songs that threaten to put the excitement back into barroom rock." according to Performer Magazine. The Sin City Boys are fleshed out by Anthony Amodeo on bass guiatr and Glenn Kimberley on drums.
The band has released three CDs, the critically aclaimed debut albumTemptation Road, and the follow up, Double Production. They have recently released their third CD, Los Muchachos De Pecado, and a live CD, Live At The Rockpile.Temptation Road met with excellent reviews and was called "one of the best releases of it's kind" by The Toronto Star. Music from The Sin City Boys CDS has become a staple on American television specialty channels, and can be heard on shows such as Gene Simmons Family Jewels, Deadwood, and TNN's The Class Of...
The show starts at 9:30pm, there will be a $5 cover at the door! If you haven't seen these guys, make sure you come out to see one of Toronto's best bands!
