150416 Thursday April 16 header\ TORONTO WEST \

The past year has been a good one for guitarist/singer Sandi Marie and her Under The Bus combo of Roots/Country-Pop musicians.

They continue to hold down a solid monthly early-show residency at Grossman’s on the first Friday of every month and tonight are making their second appearance at another well-established and very happening room that also has live music seven nights a week.

Cadillac Lounge at 1296 Queen St. W., has a decent stage with good sound and excellent sight lines (though the latter was ruined, the last time that I was there, by the ridiculous positioning of glaring lights from behind the band, forcing me to wear sunglasses to avoid going blind when I wanted to look at the performers) and a great selection of draught beers in cozy, funky room.

It’s another early show for Sandi and her troupe, which includes Guy Breau on second guitar, Kevin Jeffrey on bass and Malcolm Gould on the kit. They start at 7 p.m. and only go till 10, with no cover.
