At the end of January the band went down to the Hard Rock Toronto to film a live performance for The Toronto Sessions on Rogers TV. Have a look at Frankie and Me and if you like what you see head over to the Suitcase Sam YouTube channel to watch the two other performances. If the video isn't enough to satisfy your desire make sure to visit in our bandcamp and download the live track of Frankie and Me.
On Thursday, January 31st, Suitcase Sam and the Suits taped three songs at Toronto's HardRock Cafe as part of The Toronto Sessions. The performance will be airing in the near future on a date still to be determined.
Brent Randall and Mike Roy have been playing in the Suits for some time, but now felt like the right time to put a ring on it. If you haven't already had the chance come and check out the Suits, now performing in stereoscopic sound.
