The New Deal live recording at Lee's Palace this Saturday


Toronto's own The New Deal made a big impact in the late 90's when they released their debut album 'This is Live'. The album was recorded on cassette tapes by the sound guy at the Comfort Zone, and after the band heard the recordings it became very clear to them they were doing something right.

In a time when everything was going electronic to the max, The New Deal brought back the human element to live electronic performance, captivating audiences and building a strong fan base all around the world.

I still remember the first time I saw them perform at the Guvernment. They encompassed all what progressive house was back then, but they were playing it live with such high energy level and organic improvisational skills, which I found truly unique and impressive. I think that show had a big influence on how I would evolve in my music taste and involvement with Toronto's electronic scene.

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of those legendary sessions at the Comfort Zone, The New Deal will be playing an intimate show at Lee's Palace on Saturday September 6th. The concert will be recorded for their upcoming CD. Not to be missed!
