Sin City Boys were formed in 1992 by Kevin Jollimore and Gerard Popma. They play an original brand of country rock with influences from Hank Williams to The Rolling Stones.
Kevin met Gerard in 1984 when Gerard was playing in the Toronto band The Dice” and Kevin was busking on the corner of Yonge Street and Dundas. Both had moved from small towns to the “Sin City” to pursue their rock and roll dreams.
When Kevin and Gerard put together in City Boys, it was as a vehicle to play original music that the two had developed over many sessions with a four track tape recorder and a couple of guitars.
After countless gigs at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern and across southern Ontario, and two successful CD releases, Kevin decided, in 2000, to refocus his musical energies, and Sin City Boys broke up. In 2003, after a chance phone call from an old fan, the guys decided to get back together, on a smaller scale, and play a one- off reunion gig. The gig went so well, they have reunited for good. The result is what we have today, the critically acclaimed, much beloved Sin City Boys, doing what they do best, for nothing other than the love of music.
