SIX THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE MORNING CAESARS

The Morning Caesars are a cover band and national treasure best known for high energy, interactive party experiences that are exquisitely wrapped with top-level musicianship. Their set lists are limitless: on-demand requests led by crowd-favourite sing-a-longs that dip into every genre imaginable. Expect four-part vocal harmonies, epic solos and more than 70 years of eclectic diversity and crowd engagement that pack the dance floor ’til sunrise. Team Fox caught up with James Sheehan from the Morning Caesars this week.

 

  1. EVERYBODY PLAYS MULTIPLE INSTRUMENTS.

Tyson, Derek and Reid were playing together as a power three-piece for years. They already had a great energy working together. “Fortunately they took me in and the rest is history,” says Sheehan. Everybody sings, everybody plays multiple instruments and push each other to progress. “With a name like The Morning Caesars, we just want to ensure people have the best experiences possible with music being the link.”

 

  1. INSPIRATION COMES FROM FANS.

“When you ‘know’ that music means more to you, the only way to enhance that love is to immerse yourself so deeply that you become that energy,” he said. “That’s what music is to me. Singing is simply the most vulnerably surreal experience. When fans sing along it’s like time stops and the moment is weightless.

 

  1. NO TO NEGATIVITY.

“We love it all. Sure, the digital age has definitely changed the game, but with every draw back there is an opportunity,” he said. “More people are making music than ever before. Music is more accessible than ever and we are just happy to be amongst it all.”

 

  1. THE MORNING CAESAERS ARE EVERYWHERE.

They play many shows throughout the year. They hit up pubs such as Fionn MacCools (Oakville) and Murphy’s Law (Toronto). They do weddings. They do private parties. And, of course they do fundraisers (see below for upcoming dates.)

 

  1. REID CAMPBELL IS AN AWESOME METAL GUITARIST.

One of the Morning Caesar’s band members, Reid Campbell was inducted in the Top 100 metal guitarists in the world and performed at Helsinki Square in 2015 with Children of Bodom.

 

  1. BIG JIM SHAVED HIS LONG HAIR FOR CHARITY

James Sheehan, aka “Big Jim”, once led a SickKids fundraiser where he shaved his long locks in the middle of a concert and donated it as part of the 2010 initiative “Shred4Kids.”
