Johnnie Lovesin and the Treblemakers @ Zooma Zooma Cafe

Every Saturday - starting April 7 - from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Blues/Rockabilly legend Johnnie Lovesin and the Treblemakers

Johnnie Lovesin got his start in the mid-1960's playing in Yorkville busking for change. Fronting his own band in November 1976, he opened for The Ramones at the New Yorker Theatre in Toronto and was observed by Toronto Sun columnist Wilder Penfield III as having "blown The Ramones off the stage."

In 1980 he released "Set The Night On Fire" on Taxi Records. Following a nomination for a CFNY-FM U-Know Award in 1985 for 'Male Vocalist of the Year', Lovesin was signed directly to A & M Records.

In 1987, Lovesin performed at the Kingswood Music Theatre, opening for Stevie Ray Vaughan [R.I.P., Stevie]. He also performed twice at Ontario Place and has been the subject of a MuchMusic "The Big Ticket" special.
