It seems like it’s been forever, but on Friday February 8th, the very popular 1977 Punk Rock Blitzorama returns to the Linsmore Tavern for it’s 13th instalment. There is always been a ton of requests and a ton of buzz surrounding the 1977 Punk Night and this time the night features The Jammed Tribute to The Jam, The Gabba Heys Tribute to The Ramones and Blondee’s Tribute to Blondie! If you have seen them before, you know how cool of a show it is and the vibe is amazing! As an added bonus, Amy Gabba will be performing some Joan Jett with these fantastic musicians! Some world class musicians are in these 4 bands and they bring an incredible show to the stage, whenever they play!
Formed in 2013, THE JAMMED is a tribute act to punk/mod-revival band THE JAM. Playing lightening-fast covers, this Toronto-based trio recreates the high-energy and style of The Jam in the late 1970’s, wearing tailored suits rather than ripped clothes. The trio was known for their melodic pop songs, strong harmonies, distinctive English flavour and mod image. Their music is infused with beat music, soul, rhythm and blues, psychedelic rock, as well as 1970’s punk and new wave. THE JAMMED are: Cleave Anderson (formerly of Blue Rodeo), drums; Lucas Stagg (Lucas Stagg band) on bass and vocals, and Richard McCarthy (aka Filthy Rich), vocals and guitar.
For all of you Ramones fans, there will be a set of music by the GABBA HEYS! The GABBY HEYS feature / Lucas Vulcan on guitar/backing vocals, Cleave Anderson on drums, and Lucas Stagg on bass/lead vocals.
Formed in 2014, BLONDEE is a tribute act to American rock band Blondie, founded by Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. Blondie was a pioneer in the early American new wave and punk scenes of the mid 1970s. BLONDEE is a four piece act that scales down the hits and earlier punk songs of Blondie to their bare bones, working with only vocal, one guitar, bass and drums. Sara Dishart captures the power and sultriness of Harry’s voice, in addition to being inspired by Blondie’s style and dress on stage. BLONDEE are: Sara Dishart, vocals; Cleave Anderson, drums, Lucas Stagg, bass and vocals; Richard McCarthy (aka Filthy Rich), guitar and vocals.
