What can we say? Burlington is saddened. We are still in shock. Our hearts are broken. Burlington and the world just lost an exceptional guy. Words escape us to pay the greatest respect to this man, Mike “Beard Guy” Taylor, of Walk Off The Earth.
Be sure to bundle up! His TRIBUTE CONCERT is Sunday, January 13, from 4:30pm to 7:30pm.
Everyone is invited! It’s happening in Civic Square, Downtown Burlington.
(With Walk Off The Earth, and members of bands: Barenaked Ladies, Monster Truck, Scott Helman, USS, Darenots, and Saint Alvia)
Mike Taylor passed away in his sleep, on December 30th. A day before Walk Off The Earth’s World Tour kick off date, of December 31st, that was scheduled to happen in Niagara Falls.
Besides Mike Taylor being a regular at Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and Lettuce Love Cafe, he was a prominent soul in our downtown Burlington core, in the city of Burlington (raised in Burlington), and not to mention, in all of Canada…and pretty much the whole world. With 3 million fans on Facebook, tributes are pouring in from all corners of the Earth.
We are grateful for the time we had with him.
“We are here to celebrate you Mike. We are here to honour you and all you were and will continue to be! This is a celebration of your life. Your contribution to the music scene was extraordinary and incredible. You put Burlington on the map when you guys got on ELLEN! ELLEN!?! We will miss you so very much”.

Kelly’s Bake Shoppe is part of the tribute and will be giving away 1000’s of Hot Chocolates (we are prepared for 3000+ people!) on Sunday, January 13, from 4:30pm to 7:30pm.
Come and join us for this very emotional tribute to ‘Beard Guy’ and don’t forget to bring a “candle” (mobile phone flashlight, or battery powered candle).
Kelly, Erinn, and the whole Kelly’s team!
