LEGENDS of the TORONTO Sound!
Direct from Yonge St. Toronto, 1966, when the sounds of the Mandala with front man George Olliver, the Checkmates with John Finley, and the incredible tones of the one and only Jay Douglas were pumping out into the streets from many legendary hot spots.
A musical time that changed the landscape of downtown Toronto, now with two, 22-storey murals that pay tribute to that era and to these three artists. In honour of this legacy, we are proud to bring you this All Star R & B Revue, LEGENDS of the TORONTO Sound, featuring these three incredible artists backed by an all-star band of musicians from the era. Danny Weis (Rhinoceros, Bette Midler, Iron Butterfly) guitar, Michael Sloski (Bruce Cockburn, The Checkmates) drums, Howard Ayee (Rough Trade, Domenic Troiano Band) bass, with Simon Wallis (Lighthouse) saxes and Dave Dunlop (Boss Brass) trumpet.
Let us take you back in time!
