Sam Roberts Band exclusive performance at 102.1 The Edge

Sam Roberts Band stopped by 102.1 The Edge studios in Toronto to promote their latest record “Lo-Fantasy”. The Canadian rockers performed an intimate set for a very lucky audience of about 100 listeners in a plush, cozy theatre, located at Corus Quay: Edge corporate headquarters. Performing cuts from the new album, some classics and engaging some revealing, awkward Q&A with the audience.

The guys couldn’t be any nicer or gracious to their fans and they sound great. The new record has a bit more soulful rhythm to it, honouring the soulful and blues roots of modern rock. Pick up a copy of Lo-Fantasy everywhere! Even their website!
