Organizers say the duo will perform a number of songs during an evening dinner and social event at Toronto’s landmark Casa Loma.

Bachman and Cummings have a storied relationship on the stage.

They reunited as Bachman-Cummings years after The Guess Who split, and toured together as Bachman & Cummings in the mid-eighties.
