Little Caesar & the Consuls
It was Toronto, 1956, when a group of five young musicians joined forces
and formed what would become the legendary “Little Caesar & the
Consuls”, Canada’s oldest rock and roll dance band.
Through the years the band would benefit from a virtual Rolodex of
members including young guitarists/songwriters Gene MacLellan
(“Snowbird”) and Robbie Robertson (“The Weight”).
The “Consuls” would also share the stage with such hit makers as “The Beach Boys”, the “Rolling Stones”, “Lovin’Spoonful”, “Dave Clark Five”, and “Sonny & Cher” to name a few.
Recordings landed “Little Caesar & the Consuls” several Canadian hits; on
the Columbia label in 1963 “If I Found A New Girl”. In 1965 on Red Leaf
they recorded “My Girl Sloopy”, “Hang on Sloopy” (#1 in Canada and Top
50 in the U.S.A.) and “You Really Got A Hold On Me”.
An authentic dance band, “Little Caesar & the Consuls” are the real deal,
continuing to delight audiences wherever they perform, and faithfully
staying with the same “Consuls” brand of music. They have yet to reach
the finish line of their musical journey.
