JJ and the Pillars hit the stage at The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto to play an unforgettable set full of high energy, heartfelt ballads, and catchy folk rock tunes.

Watching JJ and the Pillars live is truly a unique experience. Each song is expertly written, including a variety of tunes that’ll get your heart racing and tunes that’ll pull at your heart strings. Aside from the music itself, lead singer JJ Thompson rambunctiously jumps around stage and performs with an expressive air that conveys the message of each song.
