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 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.
