Bentroots - Blues @ Originals

Bentroots is putting on a special night of music for TML Upstairs at Originals.

We saw them in March, when TML took over Gabby's on Eglinton and had a fantastic night! Ever since they've been looking for the perfect venue large enough for the group to come out and enjoy ourselves - and tonight's the night.

According to the band leader: Bentroots' sole purpose is 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:

Little Nicky Balkou Guitar and Vocals

Michael Fonfara Keyboards

Ed Roth  Keyboards

Duncan McBain Drums

Robert Newman Bass

Jason Clendining Sax and Flute

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

We'll be meeting at 7 pm

Cover charge $10.00

Full menu available. So come for drinks and/or dinner.

There will be door prizes too :)

Bring along your friends, coworkers, anyone who loves music and having a good time. We should have a full house for this special night.

Be sure to bring your dancing shoes.
