Lisa and I went to see Blue Rodeo with friends last night. Blue Rodeo was great but we were also impressed with the opening band, Cuff the Duke.
Cuff the Duke is an alt-country band based out of Oshawa, Ontario. They have released three (3) albums since their formation in 2002; Life Stories for Minimum Wage (2002), Cuff the Duke (2005), and Sidelines Of The City (2007). After the show, we picked up Sidelines of the City and it’s a solid album (“Surging Revival” and “Failure to Some” are great). Highly recommend giving them a listen.
