“Music is better when it sounds good.” – David Carr

“In my humble estimation the The Rex is worth near and above 6 million as real estate goes in Downtown Toronto .. that just me pulling an estimate out my rear! They could get more if they pressed it but ya it’s no hole!!” – Terry Promane

That’s all folks! Take care of yourselves and we’ll see you next week,
