So excited to welcome The Bettys to the Born Rebels roster. Three bewitching ladies,who sing in close harmony, dress in delightfully matching attire, and move with sultry elegance. Backed by a fabulous four piece band, their repertoire spans from the 1920’s to the 1980’s including swing, cabaret, mo-town, and even 80’s rock. An evening with the Bettys is always sexy, hilarious, loveable and memorable.

Sheezer at Lee's Palace and new monthly event with Wrongbar - UNDERCOVER
Born Rebels is proud to present Sheezer, the group that made cover bands cool in Toronto, at Lee’s Palace on Friday, May 30, 2014. Sheezer formed in 2009 with “the perfect band name” and have proven their appeal goes beyond simply Weezer fandom. “It’s a great shtick, but more importantly, Sheezer friggin’ rock,” writes Now Magazine. The all-female cover band concept has also evolved since Sheezer’s debut to include art-world favourites Vag Halen and newcomers Hervana. Sheezer has played to sold out crowds at Lee’s in the past (New Years Eve and Halloween shows).

WRONGBAR and Born Rebels join forces to present a monthly cover band night - UNDERCOVER. The inaugural event will take place on Friday, May 23 with Copper Lassie and Tommy Youngsteen.

The Beauties will be replacing Hot Rock at the launch party on Friday night at the Great Hall. In preparation for their London Orchestra gigs in late March, they will be playing a complete set of THE BAND.
