Dwayne Gretzky is a curated nostalgia trip that captures the unique joy of turning a radio dial and being surprised by the familiar. A 10+ peice juggernaut that brings to life the greatest songs of all time, this talented group of Toronto musicians ignites audiences with their charm, fidelity and theatrical flair. Celebrating classic pop and rock, from Fleetwood Mac to Fatboy Slim, Dwayne Gretzky has delivered electrifying renditions of over 600 songs.
Whether reinterpreting a classic in their latest recordings or playing one note-for-note at a live show, Dwayne Gretzky continues to shatter conventions and bring people together in a celebration of the songs we all forgot we loved.
Having first headlined Peterborough Musicfest in 2018, Dwayne Gretzky has since become a festival favourite, this show marking its fourth appearance on the Fred Anderson Stage.
Widely hailed as ‘Canada’s reigning champs of nostalgia,’ Dwayne Gretkzy transcends cover band status. The music collective’s performance of any one of the more than 700 classic songs in its catalogue not only showcases the abundant musical talents of each member but is also a thrill to experience. When all is said and done, Dwayne Gretzky is as much fun to watch as it is to listen to.
With a still growing and still fervent fan base, the buzz around Dwayne Gretzky was greatly bolstered by two marathon live-streamed shows on New Year’s Eve in 2020 and 2021 that allowed live music-starved viewers to enjoy a ‘night out’ in the pandemic-safe comfort of their homes. But as successful as those virtual shows were, the band’s curated nostalgia trips are best experienced live as the set list captures the unique joy of turning a radio dial and being surprised by the familiar.
