A pedal to the metal rockin’ good time – L’Rock’s Rock’s Not Dead CD launch @ Hard Rock Cafe

Reports of rock’s death have been greatly exaggerated.

It was a pedal to the metal rockin’ good time at Hard Rock Café Toronto Friday night, as L’Rock (aka Laura L’Rock) celebrated the launch of her new CD Rock’s Not Dead.

The evening’s festivities were hosted by emcee Emidio Vaz of Hit Parade Magazine, and featured guest performances by High Heels Lo Fi and comic Joshua Elijah, and a door prize draw of pedals, effects and an American Fender Stratocaster guitar (courtesy of Metro Sound & Music).

L’Rock is one of the hardest working – and biggest hearted – performers in Toronto and she’s got a kick-ass band backing her up: Bleeding Betty (aka Don Stephen) on bass, Richard Fouchaux on lead guitar, Leslie Leoniak on rhythm guitar and Dennis Colautti on drums. And young rock vocalist Courtney Carson joined L’Rock for a powerhouse duet of “Light My Fuse.”

Don’t take my word for it – check out the video for “Rock’s Not Dead” (which was touring around downtown Toronto on the side of a truck yesterday):

You can keep up with L’Rock on Twitter, Facebook and Soundcloud.

Here are some pix I took during Friday night’s rockin’ music party:
