The Commercial proudly presents a true Canadian legend, Wild T & The Spirit.
Frontman Toney Springer is known for his fierce guitar chops, fiery live performances, and unparalleled imagination that drives his music to the next level.
Toney has hung with the best of them, most notably David Bowie, Jeff Healey, Bon Jovi, Jay Leno, and David Letterman.
David Bowie invited Toney to record on his Black Tie White Noise album after seeing Toney’s video for Midnight Blues. Bowie recalled that “he was an absolute delight,” comparing his guitar style to that of Jimi Hendrix.
Jeff Healey saw a man who could combine endless inspiration with an emotion that you could feel: “I followed him around like he was a Messiah, I probably learned more from Toney than anybody else, Toney’s been my idol for years,” said Healey.
The Commercial experience is wild! Come witness the life altering performance that will blow your mind and leave you begging for more!
