The Linsmore Tavern is so happy and excited to welcome back one of the best original bands in the city, Maria Ryan & Chris Bennett Band on Friday September 1st! Maria Ryan & Chris Bennett Band have played some fantastic shows in the last year at the Linsmore and have captivated everyone in attendance! We couldn't be anymore excited to welcome this fine group of musicians performing some incredible original music that can be described as a mix or rock, roots, blues and a tiny splash of punk! Opening the show is The Bad Hombres who will be performing for the first time at the Linsmore Tavern!
Maria Ryan & Chris Bennett are a duo based in Toronto, ON, Canada. After years involved in separate musical pursuits, they came together in 2013 to blend Maria’s honey soaked gravel voice and percussive rhythm guitar playing with Chris’s artful layers of lead guitar work and vocal harmonies.
Both songwriters, their original material is a collaborative effort in which they explore themes that include lust, love, betrayal and longing. Maria and Chris also enjoy covep up on short notice and if you are a music fan, you have to see this band perform live!
With a mix of rock, roots, blues and a tiny splash of punk, they are often compared to The Decemberists, Patti Smith and late 60's era Rolling Stones. Their self-titled debut album was released in October of 2015.
The show starts at 9:30pm, $5 cover at the door, so come on out and check out this incredible band!ering a select few songs and switching them up with their own distinctly dark twist.
