The Rubber Band, Featuring The Music of The Tragically Hip

On August 20th, 2016 the band got together to watch the last Tragically Hip concert.  Our band members like the rest of Canada watched emotionally as the final song played out, Ahead By A Century.  Someone  said "You guys need to play more Hip". 

From there the idea snowballed into a tribute to Gord Downie who passed away October 17th, 2017. 

Wait! There are still 4 remaining members in The Tragically Hip.  Rob Baker, Gord Sinclair, Johnny Fay &, Paul Langlois.  Therefore our band is actually "Featuring The Music of The Tragically Hip" and we do this for Rob Baker, Gord Sinclair, Johnny Fay, Paul Langlois, and of course Gord Downie.  This is for ALL OF YOU!


This part of our larger Rock & Roll show and will not be performed nor is considered suitable or appropriate for small low volume venues.

We cater and customize our show specifically to your needs.

As the Rubber Band moves towards 2021, we wanted everyone to know that despite the Covid-19 Virus that the band has persevered through these tumultuous times.  The majority of our shows were canceled, taking away our Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.  We were fortunate enough to do some live stream venues and some fantastic outdoor shows during the summer.  Now things are slowly starting to open back up and we hope to see you all at our next live event.  Now despite all the trials and tribulations life brings we look forward to a happy and healthy 2021 with all of you!  Thank you to our families, friends, and fans for supporting live music!
