Jonny Debt w/ Weekend Riot Club @the sainttweets May 2 2014 #hamont @jonnydebt @WeekendRiotClub

Jonny Debt B-Day Bash at “This Aint Hollywood” Hamilton Releasing New radio Single “Wish I Died” also featuring Weekend riot Club

Jonny Debt based in the Golden Horseshoe region of Ontario, Canada deliver charismatic performances and catchy alternative rock songs with provocative lyrics that capture the definitive essence and the innate desires of their fan base. Their unique pseudo-psychedelic approach to video production and the messages in their material, create an instantaneous appeal that is driven by universal themes and the magnetic personality of the band. The “Jonny Debt” band are road warriors and prolific song writers who thrive on the energy of live shows and the in-your-face interaction with their listeners.

The underground and viral popularity of the “God Song” and “Apple Tree” from their previous releases have inspired the band to forge ahead on their mission to write and release as many quality albums as possible and to perform in as many cities and towns across Canada, before expanding into the US market. 

It all started with Jonny Debt performing at parties and in basements in Southern Ontario that evolved into playing at clubs and sending their music to a few college radio stations, sharing CD’s with fans and friends and various venues. The band was enamoured with the fact that they eventually began to hear their music being played in random cars with their windows down driving down the streets of their home town, on college radio stations and in various bars and clubs in their region. Jonny Debt says “When you are genuine, authentic and honest and immerse yourself in a creative state you cant help but speak from the subconscious”. The band believes their songs are the quintessential playlist for a summer road trip and naturally pen music that is fun, that people sing along to at parties. Jonny Debt can’t help but to, unabashedly reflect on their own lives and create a unique style of music that could be referred to as “a rare new sound”.

Their 2013 album release titled “Prince of The Golden Horseshoe” has received critical acclaim from Canadian music industry insiders. The first single from the record is called “Bronze”, which is being promoted to commercial rock radio and the college and university radio markets nationally by an established and professional team. “Jonny Debt” is touring nationally, with dozens of shows confirming, to support the release and in the words of the band themselves, “We will play as many shows as possible this year”. Other notable songs from the new album “Canadian Boy” and “Splash In The Sun” are poised to be strong follow-up singles to the initial radio promotion of “Bronze”.

2013 will also see “Jonny Debt” showcasing at select music industry events that may include: SXSW and the national COCA conference which will expand the recognition of their music and brand and add to their legion of fans across Canada.

The Soul Motivators Live @thesainttweets May 3 2014 #hamont

  • Tickets Available

    Toronto’s nine-piece, deep-funk explosion The Soul Motivators return to Hamilton, Ontario with a show at This Ain’t Hollywood on May 3rd.
    The Soul Motivators

    As well as regular airplay on national and college radio, the band has racked up numerous club and festival dates across Ontario and Quebec and opened for legendary acts such as Lee Fields, Bernie Worrell and Afrika Bambaataa.

    This funk machine boasts chanking guitar riffs, crisp horns and a screaming B3. The rolling bass and fatback drums will motivate you to the dancefloor and Ms. Persaud’s straight-up, raw vocal style will mesmerize all around. Their live show blends elements from across the spectrum – a solid soul review, afrobeat, the roots of funk and classic hip-hop breaks. Showcasing originals, rare covers, new joints and a few surprises, this slick show will keep the crowd moving all night long.

    Offering an alternative to classic mainstream soul, the band gained local attention in 2012 for their love of these gritty, rare grooves from the early 70s. They released their debut EP in March 2013 to a fanfare from CBC Radio 1 – a glowing review by Toronto journalist Errol Nazareth and “Until The Sun Goes Down” was made track of the week on the afternoon drivetime show Here and Now.

    The excitement quickly spread further afield with shows in Ottawa and Hamilton and CBC airplay in Halifax and Windsor. Then Frank Raines, head of Detroit based boutique label, Funk Night Records, heard the buzz across the border and signed the band for a limited edition 45.

    2013 finished on a high-note with “Until The Sun Goes Down” featured on’s Man of The Year video feature.

    With further vinyl releases planned, an upcoming documentary soundtrack and summer dates in the works, this show is sure to bring a funky ruckus to Hamilton.
