In a world of sexy success and copy and paste production, Gardenias is the antithesis of all of that. The band was formed in Toronto in the late 2000’s with the intention to mix rock music and South American folk roots. The result is an upbeat and colorful rock band. Gardenias has played in the main venues in Toronto like The Horseshoe Tavern, Lee’s Palace and had a successful launch of their first album “Al Compas del Norte” at the iconic Lula Lounge. The audience is not limited to Hispanic speakers, due to the rhythms and Hispanic-English lyrics, their audience is as multicultural as the city they call home.
