  • A night with Ron Hawkins and the Do Good Assasins

    Introducing Garden Songs and The DGA Documentary plus the best of Ron's solo work and Lowest of the Low Classics

    • Cover: $20.00
    • Time: Feb. 5, 2015, 7 p.m.
  • 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!

  • Following sold-out stints in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, Canada’s favourite children's entertainers THE MONKEY BUNCH return to the Drake this February for their annual family friendly residency.

    Their performance will feature songs from their debut album Sho, Mo and the Monkey Bunch, the acclaimed Juno-nominated Power to the Little People and a sneak peek at some new material they are working on for their 3rd release.

    This isn’t your typical children’s concert – it is not only a celebration of music, but of the planet, and sprinkled with some brilliant humour. Why go to a Bank for the best Pri-Mate? Go ape with The Monkey Bunch on Febru-Hairy 1st, 8th, 16th (Family Day) and 22nd at the Drake Underground. There will be a slew of special guests that will join the band during the month-long residency (guests will be announced soon).

    DOORS OPEN AT 230PM, SHOW STARTS AT 3PM SHARP!

  • It’s soul music! And truly universal; uniting rhythm and styles from our world over to help you move, relate and be, Sinkane’s Mean Love rolls like an emotional, existential history of the artist. Co-produced with long-time Sinkane collaborator and childhood friend Greg Lofaro, Ahmed Gallab has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the same time. From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a Pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa. This background merges with the lessons learned from Ahmed‘s stints with obsessive craftsmen such as Caribou, Yeasayerand Of Montreal, and especially the monumental task he underwent as musical director of‘ATOMIC BOMB! The Music of William Onyeabor.’ Gallab excavated and arranged a treasure trove of lost classics from the West African synth-pioneer to put together a now legendary series of performances. Alongside his band-mates in Sinkane (jaytram on drums, Ish Montgomery on bass, Jonny Lam on guitar), he also brought on guests Damon Albarn, David Byrne, The Lijadu Sisters, Money Mark and members of Hot Chip,LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, and Blood Orange.

  • 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.
