Flash Lightnin'


Flash Lightnin' is a Toronto-based power trio whose legend was born in 2007 at the Dakota Tavern, a wood-paneled and raucous basement bar in the heart of the city's Queen West district. With their extraordinary chops and reverent yet contemporary approach to blues-based southern rock and roll, Flash Lightnin's weekly residency at The Dakota quickly became one of the hottest nights in the city. These whiskey-soaked Wednesdays also emerged as an important gathering place for Toronto's musician community Read more on Last.fm
Flash Lightnin' is a Toronto-based power trio whose legend was born in 2007 at the Dakota Tavern, a wood-paneled and raucous basement bar in the heart of the city's Queen West district. With their extraordinary chops and reverent yet contemporary approach to blues-based southern rock and roll, Flash Lightnin's weekly residency at The Dakota quickly became one of the hottest nights in the city. These whiskey-soaked Wednesdays also emerged as an important gathering place for Toronto's musician community, as the band's proficiency and explosive stageshow earned them an overflowing audience that regularly included members of Broken Social Scene, Blue Rodeo, Billy Talent, Feist, and Metric. Destello (pronounced des-TAY-o, meaning "flash" in Spanish), the band's self-produced debut EP features six original songs that capture the electric intensity of those sweaty nights at the Dakota.

With Darren Glover on guitar and vocals, Darcy Yates on bass, and Chris Henry's rolling back beat, the band wears its influences of seventies ZZ Top and Rolling Stones like a well-worn Nudie Suit, with rhinestone crests of Jack White and the Black Keys. Flash Lightnin' has already shared the stage with Metric, Wintersleep, The Breeders, Sam Roberts Band and Broken Social Scene. Starting this fall they hit the road in support of Destello to bring their stompin' boogie and electrifying rock to the rest of Canada for the first time. Read more on Last.fm.
