DANNY MARKS AT THE REX (No Meetup Fee)

Hi Everyone! Join us Saturday, May 10th at 12:00 PM (noon) for lunch and an afternoon with Blues and Rock Guitarist, Danny Marks at The Rex Hotel Jazz & Blues Bar.

Danny Marks is the current holder of the Toronto Blues Society’s Blues with a Feeling Award for lifetime achievement in music and broadcast. This iconic rocker’s roots go back to the sixties as a founding member of Capitol Records’ group, Edward Bear. After a span as a journey man session musician throughout the seventies, Danny settled in to the club scene, establishing a cult following as a genre bender in music and humor. A house band gig at Toronto’s famed Albert’s Hall led him to host his own nation-wide TV show, Stormy Monday. Through the eighties, Danny starred in CBC radio’s hit series the Hum Line. Most recently, Danny Marks recorded two original music albums, Guitarchaeology and True, before paying tribute to Toronto’s R&B roots with Big Town Boy in 2005. Danny’s in his fifth year as the radio host of JAZZ.FM91′s Saturday night blues show, bluz.fm.

      Yes! Have a look on their schedule, Raoul and The Bigtime, Jerome Godboo and Dr Nick and the Rollercoasters are three superb blues bands that play the REX regularly. www.therex.ca

    Danny,
    From the discourse of the dialogue I thought that you performed "blues" as well. I have misunderstood as it is only the first time I have seen you and you do strike me as a being kinda "bluesy" as well. If that makes any sense. I love your voice as it can be quite sultry so I can imagine you singing blues. Another dose of Danny Marks "as is" would be something to look forward to.

    1 · May 15, 2014

    • Danny M.

      Lovely! That would be superb.

    Hey, Filomena (and gang), Danny still has a couple of Saturdays at the Rex that he will be performing before he retires for the summer. Perhaps he will oblige us by performing more of his work from the blues genre, eh?

    • Gayle

      not my preference thx.

      May 13, 2014

    • Danny M.

      Fransesca, you and your friends are welcome back anytime. We rock and roll, that's our thing, but if you like, I can also recommend a blues band to see there. There's something for everyone at the Rex. I am delighted that you are part of this group, what a joy to see you again!

      1 · May 14, 2014

  • Carla

    Hi Alex, do you plan to organize another meet up at the Rex to see Danny again? I was trying to follow the convo and my understanding is he's there a few more Sat.

    May 14, 2014

    • Alex S.

      Right now I have no plans to go back to the Rex for awhile. Perhaps when Danny returns after the summer.

    Spectacular! Thank you to everyone involved.

    1 · May 13, 2014

  • Pat A.

    I liked the venue. I was expecting Blues and it was more country and older songs, really old songs. Just not what I anticipated. Great location and really nice to do on a Saturday afternoon!

    May 11, 2014

    • Danny M.

      Absolutely! Filomena, your energy really got the place moving. So cool to have everybody dancing like that.

      I liked that it had nothing to do with what was announced. Life IS a mystery after all.

    • Alex S.

      I've got to agree, Ana. The food was good and Marks is definitely a character.

      No problem, Thomas. At least you made it!!

      May 10, 2014

  • Alex S.

    Very enjoyable afternoon! It was good to see some new and many familiar faces. It was also good to see a lot of smiles and hear a lot of laughter. Thanks Adora for laying the groundwork for this great outing. Great job!!! I'm hoping that everyone had a fun time.

    Congrats Margaret

  • Margaret T.

    My new grandson was born yesterday (earlier than expected) so I will not be able to attend the show. Now someone else on the waiting list can benefit.

      congratulations!!

      May 7, 2014

  • lori

    Hi Alex, I have freed up my spot for someone else. My plans came through so I cannot attend. It sounds like a great time.

    1 · May 6, 2014

    • Alex S.

      Thanks for opening up the spot, Lori. Next time!!

      May 6, 2014

  • Eric B.

    Alex, we'd love to join you, Marks is very good, but we're hosting some friends for a movie night and She Who Must Be Obeyed thinks that we cannot sneak out for a few hours in the afternoon for some relaxation. Next time for sure.

    2 · May 4, 2014

    • Alex S.

      No probs, Eric. Hopefully you and Jacqui can join us for the Rib N Roll on the 24th!!

      May 5, 2014

    • Eric B.

      Alex, Marcus asked us about that yesterday but, unfortunately, it conflicts with the European Champions League final which a bunch of us get together to watch every year.

      1 · May 5, 2014

  • Honey C.

    Alex, I just got in for the Rex. How can I get my husband on the wait list?

    May 5, 2014

    • Alex S.

      Probably the best way is for him to join the group. This way he can place himself on the wait list. That's all I can come up with right now, Honey.

    Alex, I have just changed my RSVP to “no”. My spot is supposed to be available for somebody else.

    1 · May 5, 2014

    • Alex S.

      Thanks for letting us know, Tania. Also, thanks for giving someone else your spot. We hope to see you at another event soon!!

    I love The Rex but I can't attend on this date. I hope you will host a similar event again.

    Here's a suggestion - perhaps collect $20.00 from everyone, plan the event six weeks into the future - purchase a wine kit where each of us can actually take home two or three bottles of? This way, when we are learning how to fill, cork and label the bottles - they will actually be OUR OWN bottles!

    May 1, 2014

    • Carla

      That is a GREAT suggestion!

      May 1, 2014

    • Alex S.

      I'll discuss it with Don, my wine guy!!

      May 1, 2014

  • Carla

    Alex, any chance of this event coming around again (Rex Hotel)? That is a long waiting list.

    2 · May 1, 2014

    • Alex S.

      I don't see why not, Carla. I'd like to do it too. Wanted 40 spots, but they would only give us 30. If it's a popular event perhaps we could do it 2 or 3 more times.

      May 1, 2014

  • Winnie K.

    My first time join this meet up, hope I can get in.

    1 · April 29, 2014

    • Winnie K.

      Thanks, Alex. I missed the 50 & 60 music party. I found out too late. Hope you can organize another one soon.

      May 1, 2014

    • Alex S.

      Others will definitely be in the works.

      May 1, 2014

  • Debra K

    16 on the waiting list? Wow!

    1 · April 30, 2014

    • Alex S.

      Wanted 40 spots but it was a no go. I guess that we'll just have to do some more jazz and blues events.

      3 · April 30, 2014

  • Elly G.

    Was there last Saturday...Love Danny Marks! Great venue! Have fun :)
