Johnnie Dee and Derry Grehan founded HONEYMOON SUITE in 1982. It was Toronto’s Q107-FM Homegrown Contest (1983) that put them on the map with “New Girl Now” winning the contest. The response was so overwhelming that Bob Roper at WEA Canada immediately signed the band. Their self-titled debut album hit stores in 1984, spawning the Top 10 Singles “New Girl Now”, “Burning In Love”, “Stay In The Light” and “Wave Babies”. The album went platinum with over 400,000 units to date in Canada alone. The band’s second album “The Big Prize” (1986), featuring a rare appearance by Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson, went platinum in Canada almost immediately and saw HONEYMOON SUITE’s first real entry into the US market. A total of 12 albums has produced further notable tracks “Feel It Again”, “What Does It Take”, “Bad Attitude”, “Lethal Weapon”, “Love Changes Everything”, “Lookin’ Out For Number One”, “Still Lovin’ You” and “Long Way”.
Throughout the mid-80’s Honeymoon Suite toured both sides of the border headlining club gigs and opening for such superstars of the era as Billy Idol, April Wine, Bryan Adams, Heart, .38 Special and ZZ Top. Riding the wave of popularity the band was nominated for the “Most Promising Group” Juno Award (1984) as well as “Group of The Year” (1985) and “Album of The Year” (1985). 1986 also saw the band win a gold award for “Best Live Act” at the World Popular Song Festival in Tokyo in addition to the Juno Award for “Group Of The Year”. A measure of success south of the border came their way as songs aired on TV’s “Miami Vice” and the movie soundtracks “Lethal Weapon II” and “One Crazy Summer”. Now bigger, louder and suite’r, don’t miss the opportunity to witness the spectacle that is HONEYMOON SUITE!
