One of Toronto's hottest party bands, TRAINWRECK features a talented ensemble of Toronto musicians who play pretty much anything to shake the house down. Fronted by TV and stage actor Rick Miller, TRAINWRECK specializes in funky originals and uptempo rock covers. From Elvis (Presley) to Elvis (Costello), from Gabriel to Gaga, from ABBA to ZAPPA, they aim to delight and surprise with every song we play. A guaranteed 'wrecking' good time!
