If you are not sure what you are going to do for New Year's Eve and you want to keep the cost down, the Linsmore Tavern has the solution for you! Thursday December 31st, the Linsmore Tavern is hosting an incredible and very affordable party, where you can walk to or take the free the subway to and from! On top of it all, one of the best and most fun party bands in all of Toronto will be performing for the third straight year, 2 years in a row of capacity filled New Year's Eve Parties! Trainwreck is the the perfect band to ring in the new year with as they will play all your party favourites and songs that are suitable to celebrate into the new year!
One of Toronto's hottest new party bands, TRAINWRECK features a talented ensemble of Toronto musicians who play pretty much anything to shake the house down. Fronted by TV and stage actor Rick Miller, TRAINWRECK specializes in funky originals and uptempo rock covers. From Elvis (Presley) to Elvis (Costello), from Gabriel to Gaga, from ABBA to ZAPPA, we aim to delight and surprise with every song we play. A guaranteed 'wrecking' good time!
