As the saying goes "all good things must come to an end" and so it is with Lunch At Allen's, who will embark on a country-wide Farewell Tour beginning in Atlantic Canada this October. Coming together in 2004, for what was meant to be a one-off 8-date tour presented as a song-writer's circle, the four renowned artists discovered a soul-warming joie de vivre in performing together ... and so began 20 years of camaraderie touring the country coast to coast.
Lunch At Allen's is a musical powerhouse comprising four internationally renowned Canadian talents: Murray McLauchlan, Cindy Church, Marc Jordan and Ian Thomas. While songs like Murray's Farmer's Song, Marc's Marina Del Rey and Ian's Painted Ladies form our collective life soundtrack, as individuals, these artists have also penned hits for Bon Jovi, Josh Groban, Chicago, Bonnie Raitt, America, Santana, Cher, Diana Ross and Rod Stewart. The icing on the Lunch At Allen's cake, however, is the expressive, poetic voice of Cindy Church (Quartette, Great Western Orchestra) ... together their familiarity and camaraderie, their exquisite harmonies and sheer volume of combined musical talent adds up to a delectable evening's entertainment.
"You would be hard pressed to find another Canadian ensemble with more collective depth of influence over Canada’s musical landscape than Lunch At Allen’s." – The Beat Magazine
