Gramercy Riffs celebrated the release of their latest album Desire Trails. Joining them were Terra Lightfoot and Ossington Rippers.
Terra Lightfoot began with tunes that varied from alt-rock to country about topics like making out with everyone at a party and found love.
Ossington Rippers are named after a Toronto street gang in the 1940s. The Rippers short songs are dedicated to the gang and have the same rebellious party spirit.
Gramercy Riffs began with mostly songs from Desire Trails. While I’m still getting acquainted with the new album, my favourites included the single “Heart Break” and “Beat That My Heart Skipped”. The band loosened up when they performed songs from their older catalogue and the crowd reacted by dancing.
