Linsmore Tavern says
This is going to be a really cool Blues Sunday at the Linsmore Tavern, as we are welcoming back The Madcats! The last time The Madcats had played at the Linsmore Tavern was way back in 2013! This is one serious Blues Band, as The Madcats formed in 1987 and have been around for almost 30 years! We only bring in the best blues bands for our Blues Sunday series and The Madcats definitely fit the bill!

The Madcats are a mixture of each others styles and influences. They have been together as an unit for over 5 years and 3 of the band members for over 10 years and 2 for 20 plus years. The Madcats have never sounded better than they do now and they want to share their sound and passion for music with as many people as we can. The Madcats are unique in the sense that they play for the love of music rather than the fan fare and notoriaty. Recognition is nice and it warms the heart but, they get more out of seeing people have so much fun listening and dancing to their music.

THE BAND MEMBERS

Albert Glencross (Guitar) is a "FEEL" blues player through and through. Coming from the Eastern Canada and moving to Toronto in the early 80's he revered players like Jimmie Vaughan,Robert Cray,Albert Collins, Albert King, Buddy Guy and SVR just to name a few. He does not play the blues, the blues plays him. All you have to do is listen and you will know what we mean.

David Cunningham (Bass Guitar), born in England and growing up in 80's his influences were varied from Punk and New wave to R&B and Funk. His ability is limitless and his passion for playing music is tremendous. Just one word "GROOVE" epitomises his playing.

Mike Burke (Drummer), studied music at Humber college and is a "MASTER" technician with the drumsticks. There is no beat that eludes this young man, he is as steady as they come. Hailing from Northern Ontario, Mike's easy going nature and friendly disposition makes the band dymanics work, in more ways than one.

Kirk Guitard (Vocals, Sax) last but not least, Kirk is a "SEASONED" veteran who has been around the block and is the icing on the cake for The Madcats. Also from Eastern Canada (New Brunswick), Kirk brings his laid back saxaphone style and distinct vocal phrasing to round out the overall Madcats' experience.

The Madcats feed off the energy and enjoyment of the crowd and the crowd feeds off the energy and groove of the band. It is always a magical experience when ALL comes together... The Madcats always deliver....they are worth a listen! Come check out one Toronto's legendary Blues acts for the Linsmore Tavern's Blues Sunday series! There's No Cover, The show starts at 6pm!
