Bio: Dwayne Gretzky is a live music phenomenon celebrating the greatest songs of all time. Transcending both era and genre, this prodigiously talented collective of Toronto musicians captivates audiences with a masterfully curated tour of artists from both the classic and modern pop canon - from Bowie to Beyonce, Springsteen to Spears, The Supremes to The Strokes. With tasteful precision, chameleonic versatility and a flair for the dramatic, Dwayne Gretzky scratches our collective itch to be surprised by the familiar.
In an increasingly saturated and scattered music landscape defined by predictable playlists and individualized consumption, Dwayne’s high-energy nostalgia trips recall the serendipity of flipping through the radio dial, and the joy of coming together en masse to celebrate and sing along to the best songs ever written. Boasting 100+ straight sold-out shows in their hometown of Toronto and with venue capacities growing into the multiple-thousands, Dwayne Gretzky is shattering conventions and re-defining what people truly want in a live music experience.
Band members include: Tyler Kyte (from Lindsay, ON), Nick Rose, Jill Harris, Meg Contini, Lydia Persaud, Rich Knox, Adam Hindle, Michael Brushey, Ian Docherty, Edwin Sheard, Dave Dalrymple, "Champagne" James Robertson, and Simeon Abbott.
