The link above will take you to the pics from their 2013 concert in Vaughan. They are really good musicians, who also know how to work their audience.

Every year the The EX puts on a number of concerts at the CNE Bandshell. In a future post I will compile a complete 2014 concert list.

I wanted the first post about the 2014 CNE Bandshell concerts to feature a really great band, but also one which is not as well-known in Toronto.

The concerts will start at 7:30pm. but get there early.
