Tony O’s Variety Jam Night at the Salty Dog to highlight Moldy Oldies

It will be Moldy Oldies Night on the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 23 at the Salty Dog Bar and Grill on Queen Street East.

Old time tunes will fill the air at Salty Dog Bar and Grill on Wednesday, Jan. 23.

Tony O’s Variety Jam Night “Moldy Oldies Night” will feature a guest set by local band The Two Fours and their old-time good time every time rock, roll, roots, blues, country, and random tunes.

Also on the bill is host Tony Oldland’s Dance Beatles group, the core of his popular Fab Four tribute band, The Beachles. So a selection of danceable hits from those kids from the Mersey River will certainly be among the repertoire.

Jammers are encouraged, said Oldland, to “dig up an old tune or three and come on down.”

Any genre is welcome, whether it be rock, blues, jazz or any other. Covers and originals can self-accompanied, or backed by the Dance Beatles or the talented guest players.

Salty Dog owners, brothers Larry and Danny Papas, have added Tony O’s Variety Jam Night on Wednesdays to their slate of musical offerings. Tuesdays feature jazz with drummer Greg Pilo, who attracts some of Toronto’s top players to join him, year after year.

Thursday, it’s karaoke with Erika, and Friday Mike Sedgewick’s Blues Jam. Saturday matinees and evenings rock with groups like The Grown Men, Porch Dog Choir, and The Neckties.

Come Feb. 10, roots and rockabilly return to the Beach, beginning with the all-star trio The In Line Six

Salty Dog serves finger food and full meals from a menu created and prepared by Chef Dev. Reservations are available.

The Salty Dog is located at 1980 Queen St. E. For more info, call 416-894-5064 or visit online at
