Tom Wilson aka LeE HARVeY OSMOND Presents MOHAWK
Advance $25.00 / Door: $30.00 *
“I’m scared and scarred but I’ve survived”
Over the past three decades, Tom Wilson has placed a large bootprint on the Canadian music landscape, first as the charismatic frontman of platinum-selling rock band Junkhouse and now as one-third of acclaimed roots-rock group Blackie and The Rodeo Kings.
For decades Tom carved out a life for himself in shadows. He built an international music career and became a father, he battled demons and addiction, and he waited, hoping for the lies to cease and the truth to emerge.
With a rare gift for storytelling and an astonishing story to tell, Tom writes with unflinching honesty and extraordinary compassion about his search for the truth. His new book, Beautiful Scars, is a story about scars, about the ones that hurt us, and the ones that make us who we are.
On May 16, Tom Wilson presents MOHAWK, which will combine songs and a recital of Beautiful Scars alongside fellow Hamilton-based musician, Jesse O’Brien.

Danny Marks Presents a Tribute to Chess Records
Advance $40.00 / Door $45.00 *
Chess was one of the premier blues labels of the 1950s and 60s, also releasing R&B, soul, jazz, gospel and rock. They released records by every major blues artist in Chicago, including John Lee Hooker, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Little Walter and many others.
If there’s a popular song from 1900 to now, chances are Danny Marks has heard it, and can sing it. And maybe even put a new spin on it: Johnny Cash performing Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love, or Elvis launching into reggae. An aficionado of the great blues singers of the ’30s and ’40s, Marks was one of the first guitarists to incorporate blues roots into rock music. Now, the popular host of BLUZ FM on JAZZ FM every Saturday night is presenting the music of Chess Records alongside a beautiful cast of some of Toronto’s finest singers and musicians. Follow the links below to see just some of the confirmed performers.
