Little Caesar and the Consuls might possibly be Toronto’s oldest rock band. In Troubles and Trials, the band’s former drummer, Gary Wright, takes a look back at the journey of a unique and successful homegrown band and the chain of events that helped make them popular.
As rock-and-roll traditionalists for well over half a century, Little Caesar and the Counsuls achieved recognition as accomplished musicians and songwriters—despite never producing a hit record after 1965. Wright not only chronicles the musical history that led up to the creation of the band in 1956, but also details the dynamics behind the band and what kept them rockin’ right up until they disbanded at the end of 2010. Determined to take a song and “Caesarize” it by making it their own, the band distinguished themselves from their competition and became a sought-after dance and cover band. Wright brings the band’s story to life by including photos, anecdotes, and stories about the band’s group of truly illustrious friends.
Troubles and Trials shares an introspective, behind-the-scenes glimpse into what it is like to share a passion for music with others and, in the process, create the kind of memories that last a lifetime.
