Riff Raff Nominated 3 times (2014, 2015 and 2019 – and winning in 2015) “Best Cover Band” in Planet S Magazine’s Annual “Best of Saskatoon” Reader’s Poll

We are completely blown away! From everybody in the band, we want to thank every single person who voted for us. Thank you so much for voting us to 2nd Place in the 2019 Saskatoon’s Best Cover Band Poll.  This year was our third time being nominated (winning in 2015) and we are so honored and humbled again by your kind support. 

From Planet S Magazine 2015:

 “What happens when you put a bunch of guys who love the likes of AC/DC, Guns ‘N Roses and everything else ‘80s hard rock-related into one single band? Something very cool, obviously. And what happens when those guys also happen to be some of the best players this city has to offer? You get the most consistently awesome retro live show that you’ll see in this city! Riff Raff has been rocking Saskatoon stages for a long time now, and thousands of satisfied headbangers wouldn’t have it any other way!

Thank you for your support – it’s only because of friends like you that we have the chance to step up on stage and play it loud and proud. Without you, the band would not exist.

Who is Riff Raff?

30 Years of Rock

Founded in 1987, Riff Raff toured full-time playing stages across the country, performing six nights a week for years honing their stagecraft and sound. After a brief hiatus in the mid-90s, The band regrouped in ’97 and have been dominating Saskatchewan’s live classic rock stages ever since.

Rolling on…

Today, Riff Raff still features original founding members Rory Lawford (lead vocals/guitar) and Brian Kendall (guitar). For the past decade or more, they have been accompanied by the incredible rhythm section of Dave Denowski (bass) and Kevin Sick (drums).

Performing with the cohesiveness that can only come from playing hundreds of shows together, a Riff Raff performance is a hard-rocking party with your favourite classic hit songs played with skill, style and fun.
