  • The Lonely Hearts are a rock and roll jukebox.

    A high energy quartet, the Lonely Hearts have been playing together for nearly a decade; from intimate parties to maximum capacity crowds, they have kept audiences dancing from start to finish. They contain the energy and soul of a vintage rock and roll band but with an incredibly vast repertoire that ranges from early rock and roll, Motown, early punk, new wave and modern pop. Their musicianship goes far beyond their years. They pride themselves on the ability to read a crowd and use their repertoire to tailor their set in order to keep the party at a high pace.

    A unique contrast exists within The Lonely Hearts; they give you the best of then with the youthful energy of now. They understand the importance of your event and will do everything they can to make your event as memorable and enjoyable as possible.

  • Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.

    Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!
