Doors 7pm/Show 930pm

The members of Tiny Havoc – a name endearingly inspired by little children who run wild/a common thread that binds members of band – formed in early 2015 by colleagues and friends Toga D’Hoore (bass & keys), Arthur Smith (guitar) and Shadi Toloui-Wallace (vocals). The band was soon joined by James Higgins (drums) and Justin Gorrie (horns & keys).
Holding international roots, the band and its members currently reside in Vancouver, B.C where they write and record their original material. Tiny Havoc has a sound unlike anything else, casting a wide net that spans across hip hop beats, Motown funk melodies and jazz soul vocals. They don’t plan to take over the world, but they will take over one tiny heart at a time.

For New Years Eve, 2018, we have a very special night for you. We are taking our ‘This Is Not a Band’ format to the next level by featuring one of our favourite singers of all time, Ms. Dawn Pemberton. Backed by a group instrumentalists who have not yet all performed together, Dawn is going to bring the Funk and Soul to 2018 like only she can while backed by a killer band.

We’ve decided that for NYE this year, we would abstain from a high-priced ticketed event and all that one would entail. No bells and whistles, just great music and great company like any night at Guilt & Co. Admission will be a minimum donation of $15 to the band and that’s it, so come take refuge from the well-known spectacle that is NYE.
