ABOUT

Little Caesar and the Consuls are a Canadian rock music group, that first became active in Toronto, Ontario in 1956.

2016 marked the 60th Anniversary of Little Caesar & the Consuls, since 1956. It seems like it was just yesterday when we celebrated our 50th in 2006. For a full account of this group’s amazing journey, see Historical Site.

This site provides the latest scoop on what we are all about, as our music continues to resound off walls at dances and concert venues with the same great old songs.

  1. Next year will mark the 60th anniversary of Little Caesar and the Consuls – arguably one of the best rock and roll bands that Canada has ever produced! It would be fantastic if former and present members of the band could reunite to hold a Diamond anniversary dance to celebrate their sixtieth! Wouldn’t that be a party to remember! Oshawa or Lindsay would be great locations to hold a 60th Diamond anniversary/reunion. Remember last spring there were over 1100 tickets sold in Lindsay for the combined Greenhurst/LCVI reunion. This proves the bands lasting popularity. People love this band and the musicians who have played in this band for nearly six decades. This would be a very fitting way to celebrate the best band in the country that we have listened and dance to for 60 years.

    • Hey Paul
      That would DEFINITELY be a fantastic event. I will ask our “elders” in the band – Walter and Sam – to work up a strategy and we can then discuss it with you TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN. Thanks ever so much for all your incredible support.
