Bentroots - Blues @ Gabby's on Eglinton

Thanks to the hard work of one of our members – Dale, Bentroots and Gabby’s is putting on a special night of music for TML!

According to the band leader: Bentroots sole purpose was to create some musical magic...a black and blue magic...exploring various styles and rhythms...unafraid to try something a little different, to challenge us, yet we always tried to stay true to ourselves and our blues roots.

Band members:
Nicholas Balkou Vocalist/Guitar

Robert Newman Bass Guitar

Michael Fonfara Piano/Keyboard/Organ

Duncan McBain Drums

Ed Roth Accordian/Keyboard

Jason Clendining, Saxophone

For more information on the band and to sample some of their tunes visit:

Band will be playing from 8:00 to 11:00 p.m. - tickets at door -only $10.00  (your entrance ticket will also be included in 3 door prize draws)

We will be meeting at 7:00 p.m. to order drinks & pub grub and visit with our fellow music lovers before the show begins.

Saturday night is usually “shots special” night, however the pub will also be offering a special price for wine in honour of TML’s visit. There is still a possibility of a 'grub' special.

Gabby’s is located on the south side of Eglinton a few blocks east of Mt Pleasant.

Coming by TTC – several Eglinton buses go by the door.

Parking – limited space behind the bar, free parking on Eglinton Avenue and on neighbouring streets.

Many thanks to Dale for doing the grunt work, to the band for putting on a special show for us, and to the bar for hosting our group.

If you would like to arrange a similar outing for TML to hear your favourite band at your local watering hole – big enough to hold 20-30 of us – please be sure to let me know.

    fantastic night. thanks to Dale for making it happen. we came, we took over the bar, we even found room to dance on the tiny "dance floor". all winners of the door prizes were sitting at the same table - who knew it was the lucky one? :) Bentroots is a great band and we're looking into doing something with them in the summer on a much bigger scale so that more of you can join in on the fun
