Chances are, as you're reading the titles of these classic Lighthouse hits, you’re singing them in your head and smiling. The band's unique blend of rock, jazz and classical music rocketed them to the top of the charts and their songs are still heard daily on radio, television, and home sound systems around the world.
Recognized as one of the best performing acts of their time, Lighthouse toured upwards of 300 days a year including sold out performances at Carnegie Hall, the Fillmore East, Fillmore West, Expo ‘70 in Japan and the Isle of Wight Festival in England. Lighthouse caused such a stir at the Isle of Wight, that they were asked to perform twice among acts that included The Doors, Miles Davis, Joni Mitchell, The Who and Chicago. Back home, their free concerts at Toronto’s Nathan Philips Square attracted one hundred thousand people. Indeed, it’s hard to find a person who lived in Canada through the 1970s who didn’t see the group live.
Free-wheeling, high-spirited – the music of Lighthouse mirrored the times. The emergence of Cancon (Canadian content regulations) influenced by Skip Prokop and Paul Hoffert’s historic appearances before Parliament, allowed the music of Canadians to be heard across the country. Riding the wave, Lighthouse originated the cross-Canada tour, playing every major and minor venue across the country. Their rise to fame coincided with this new awareness of Canadian culture and devoted audiences from province to province took pride in seeing one of their own make it to the top. For a generation of Canadians, Lighthouse is the soundtrack of their lives.
After regrouping several times, Lighthouse permanently reunited in 1992. The ten-piece band continues to record and tour, performing with the same explosive, hard-driving sound that has kept them on the airwaves and in the hearts of fans for more than 50 years.
