Cabana Room Electric Reunion at Hugh’s Room Live
June 16 /8:00 pm 11:00 pm
Cabana Room Electric Reunion
Advance: $25.00 / Doors: $30.00
Welcome to the second night of an all-acoustic two-night reunion featuring the regulars from a legendary music room in the heart of Toronto. The Cabana Room (atop the Spadina Hotel) was the incubator of the original Toronto music scene, and Jimmy Scopes was our seemingly curmudgeonly host. He’s not here to hear it but we’re gathering to pay musical tribute. Thank you, Jimmy Scopes!
Night two of the muso-travaganza continues on Sunday, June 16 with an 8pm downbeat. The mostly (but not exclusively) electric shenanigans are hosted by Arlene Bishop and feature some of Jimmy’s favourite music: Steve Ellis, Steve Ranger, and Bob Vezpaziani (API), Tony Malone (Drastic Measures, Basketcase), Blair Packham (The Jitters), Dave Dysart (The Supreme Bagg Team), The Dave Howard Singers, Garage Baby, Fergus Hambleton (The Basics, The Sattalites), Gord Cumming (The Lawn, The Woods are Full of Cuckoos), Gordon Shawcross (Monkey Trial), and Mr! Mouray (Jaimie Vernon w/ Simon Bedford-James). Fans from three decades of great pop, folk, funk, and punk will recognize the attitude and latitude of Jimmy Scopes that helped to form the Toronto Queen West music scene.
