Showcasing Toronto’s best live original bands and the covers we have all come to love The Duke is truly the east end’s best kept secret.

Karaoke lives on at The Duke once a week. Saturday nights are for great cover and tribute bands that keep you on your dancing feet. Sunday nights have become a draw with entertainment starting at 5pm and ending at 8pm. Sundays bring you you such bands as Robbie Lane and the Disciples, SOULidified and some country thrown in there too.

Every other Sunday we have Big Band Sunday Nights that feature 15-20 piece bands such as The Advocats, George Lake Big Band and Wintergarten.

Our stage is large and musicians love it.

You never know who you will run into at The Duke: Dennis Quaid came in as a guest to Paul James and played songs from his Jerry Lee Lewis film.

For enquiries about getting your band up on the stage see our Basic’s page under Band Notes.
