McDonald and Rush team up to step up to the Monarchs stage tonight

Back in the days when Grossman’s was actually the place to be to see live music (we’re talking a very long time ago!) Blues Rock guitarists Mike McDonald and Pat Rush were staples of what used to be a world-class roster that often also included the late Jeff Healey, a friend of both of them. The two survivors still perform there on rare occasions (last weekend for a Stones tribute show) but don’t really team up much at all these days.

Tonight however, the McDonald-Rush reunion takes place on in a room befitting their talent level on a really nicely appointed stage as they play Monarchs Pub in the Delta Chelsea Hotel at 33 Gerrard St. W. in downtown TO from 9-1.
