LIVE PERFORMANCES at Relish Bar & Grill
Sweet Smell of Success
Everytime You Break My Heart
Weddings, Parties, Anything...
(May 2017) Some of you may be working under the misguided impression that the Pearl Motel only likes to hang out and play in bars. Well, perish the thought. Of course we love bars (they're awesome), but we just love to play our patented brand of swingin' jazzabilly anywhere and everywhere. In fact, we love to play private events and can entertain your people in a variety of configurations. The Pearl Motel can strip down to leaner combinations of musicians and can still deliver a couple of fun and eclectic sets. And that's the point of this blurb. We can go big (full band) or small to meet the needs of your venue or event. So why not consider the Pearl Motel... We're more fun than a bunch of sailors on shore leave (except, unlike them, we clean up our mess when we leave).
Our Commitment to Original Music Requires a Lot of Friends
(January 2018) As anyone who has seen or heard us knows, the Pearl Motel plays an eclectic mix of material. From Irving Berlin to Frank Sinatra to the Everly Brothers to Lucinda Williams to Johnny Cash, we offer something familiar for almost every taste. But our main stock in trade is our commitment to writing and performing original songs. It is an honour to be able to share these songs with you and we are grateful to everyone who supports local musicians making original music. And no one supports live and local music more than our local entrepreneurs who lend players like us their stages. Bar and restaurant owners are the lifeblood of any local music scene. No one is getting rich, but we all share in the joy of making and presenting fantastic music. None of it would work without you. So thanks for coming out and supporting both artist and venue with your open ears and, frankly, your wallets. Music lovers like you keep all of us in business (If you need a quick hit of the Pearl Motel, just click the links directly below)
Listen... Right here... Right now!
(June 2017) It's between gigs and you haven't yet got your copy of our mini album, The Storm Sessions. How do you scratch that itch? Easy. Just stream a few songs from the record right here at thepearlmotel.com.
Whenever you need a fix of our swingin’ and genre-defying tuneage, just click on these links or check out our “Songs” tab, where you’ll find set list staples Beautiful Disaster, I Wanna Know and Behind Your Eyes. Stream away. The boss won’t mind. Heck, she’ll probably dig ‘em too. She might even ask how come you have such amazing taste in music and then, perhaps, she’ll offer you a big time promotion because, well, someone with such classy and refined preferences in music is probably the next corporate high-flyer…
Who knows? Anything can happen when you check in at the Pearl Motel… Give us a listen. And pick up at copy of the Storm Sessions at one of our gigs... only $10. Can't beat that!
Relish Bar & Grill
(2152 Danforth Ave.)
Friday June 7th
We've been hunkering down in the Pearl Motel's secret hideout, working on new material and waiting for spring. But, gosh darn it, even the most reclusive bands like to get out once in a while. So, we'll be back on the beam Friday June 7th at our favourite east end joint, Relish Bar & Grill. Come for dinner, come for drinks and best of all, come for the Pearl Motel. We'll satisfy your soul while chef Joanne Clayton satisfies the rest with her fantastic tapas menu and beautifully stocked bar. So come out and swing the night away with us. You'll be glad you did.
