The Orbit Room An out of the world experience in the heart of Toronto October 1994. Another new bar opens in Toronto. Big deal. One more watering hole. Probably will last a few months and then fold like so many others. However this story is unlike most. This story harkens back to the mid 80’s when clubs like Le Coq D’or, the Colonial, Club Bluenote and others hosted live entertainment that had their own sound, their own vibe and their faithful followers. The Orbit Room is a special place. Founded by Tim Notter and Alex Lifeson (of the band Rush) the Orbit Room has been the breeding ground of the resurgence of Maximum R&B, and a band known simply as the Dexters.
