Although we can’t hear “Working for the Weekend” without recalling Chris Farley’s famous skit on SNL, the Canadian group, Loverboy was a very popular Rock band in the 80’s that was able to find an audience south of their border. Their style of Arena Rock was a palatable one, though their iconic leather pants and headbands are mocked more these days. Thankfully in their concerts today, they have dispensed with that look, though one look at front man Mike Reno would indicate that he wouldn’t exactly fit into them anyway.
