THE EL MOCAMBO, TORONTO’S LEGENDARY NIGHT CLUB, IS CLOSING ON NOVEMBER 6

ELMOCAMBO2         Nothing lasts forever it seems, even one of Canada’s most famous music venues. The EL MOCAMBO is closing its doors in November and many will mourn its passing. The El-Mo made headlines when the Rolling Stones performed there in 1977 <PHOTO ABOVE – Toronto Star>; our Prime Minister’s wife – Margaret Trudeau – danced the night away; the Toronto Police Pipe Band performed on its stage, Elvis Costello and April Wine recorded live albums in the club; a Stevie Ray Vaughan concert was filmed there; Bo Diddley performed, etc. etc.
