Set me Free
Julian Taylor Band - Desert Star Canadian

Not a revivalist, but a musical revisionist, Julian Taylor masterfully re-combines and updates the vintage sounds that inspired him, to create bold, innovative songs.

Taylor doesn’t fit in a box. He never has—and more power to him. It puts him in a similar situation as some of his musical heroes, old and new, like Los Lobos or Michael Kiwanuka. It’s tempting to call his music R&B, except that means something very different in 2018 than it did in the days of Al Green, Bill Withers, and Van Morrison.

Playing Thursday!

(I Can't Get You) Out of My Mind
The Hornettes - The Hornettes Canadian

Formed in Ottawa, Ontario in 2010, The Hornettes are a fire-breathing funky beast with a single purpose: heart racing, feet pacing, soul shaking, earth quaking dance floor bedlam. Sexual tension and heart-stopping stares ooze from the front-women, supported by the hottest horn section in town, and nature’s strongest form: the rock-solid rhythmic triangle of guitar, drums and bass. A funky love-child of the best of Motown and the current soul revival, The Hornettes will leave you panting, chanting and heart transplanting. Pound for pound, the best sound in town.

Playing Saturday!
