On a ‘cursed’ sunny, warm Toronto evening, the Patio at Roy Thomson Hall is a perfect venue for the cities office tower denizens to relax comfortably against the backdrop of the city-scape & live music in the background.
A FAMILY CURSE features father & daughter duo Neil Osbourne (of 54-40 infamy) and rising star KANDLE Osbourne.
A brief Canadian tour, with an album on the way, The Osbourne Clan (A Family Curse) stopped in Toronto to preview new and familiar material.
This is a modern day blues band (duo) that’ll make you shake and shudder the blues in every town from L.A to who cares where.
Father-daughter banter prevailed, showcasing a relaxed, fun evening was in-store for all.
The music is pure Folk-Art, worked from found objects (something old, something new) transformed into beautiful tunes. Best listened to under the light of the Moon.
Culling material from Kandle’s previous two release, Kandle won over many new fans who were there to see 54-40’s Neil.
Once you hear it you’ll be doomed to ride the getaway car that is A Family Curse – the cure for your battered bag of bones. Get ready.
A duet version of original 54-40 classic (Hootie and the Blowfish covered), “I Go Blind” was a nice ‘familia’ highlight.
Being cursed on a sunny, warm evening may not be too bad after all …
