Artist Bio

Little Caesar & the Consuls Since 1956 It was Toronto 1956, when a group of five young musicians joined forces and formed what has become the legendary, long-standing “Little Caesar & the Consuls”, Canada’s oldest rock and roll dance band. Through the years the band would benefit from a virtual Rolodex of members including early guitarists/songwriters Gene MacLellan (“Snowbird”) and Robbie Robertson who went on to join Ronnie Hawkins’ “Hawks” and later “The Band’. The group would also share the stage with such hit-makers as “The Beach Boys”, the “Rolling Stones”, “Lovin’Spoonful”, “Dave Clark Five’, and “Sonny & Cher’ to name a few. Recordings landed “Little Caesar & the Consuls” several Canadian hits. On the Columbia label in 1963 “Jf Found A New Girl’, on Red Leaf in 1965 “My Girl Sloopy”, “Hang on Sloopy” (#1 in Canada and Top:50 in the U.S.A.) and “You Really Got A Hold On Me’. The latter was a signature hit from Smokey Robinson which reached number one in Canada in 1965 and even hit the top spot on the U.S. RPM chart that year. Current members include Martin Damsell (guitar and lead vocals), Walter Taylor (keyboards and vocals), Russ Strathdee (tenor and baritone sax and vocals), Phil Strong (drums and vocals) and James Legere (bass and vocals). An authentic dance band, “Little Caesar & the Consuls” are the real deal, continuing to delight audiences wherever they perform, and faithfully staying with the same “Consuls” brand of music. They have yet to reach the finish line of their musical journey.
