Honeymoon Suite
Multi-platinum Canadian recording artists Honeymoon Suite have sold over a million CD’s world wide over their 25 year career and still touring, recording and rocking out harder and better than ever!

Johnnie Dee and Derry Grehan, the principal and founding members of Honeymoon Suite. Throughout 1983 and 1984 Honeymoon Suite toured Canada and the US, consistently headlining club gigs and opening for such acts as Billy Idol, April Wine, Laura Branigan, Jethro Tull, The Kinks, and Bryan Adams. In 1984 the band was nominated for the ‘Most Promising Group’ Juno Award.

Propelled by the success of more singles from the album, 1985 saw the band begin to headline gigs throughout Ontario and the rest of Canada. A highlight was the presentation of an award at the 1985 Junos. By this time the first album had achieved platinum sales status. Almost 22 years later the album has now sold over 400,000 units in Canada alone.
Honeymoon Suite’s second album was released on Valentine’s Day 1986. ‘The Big Prize’, which went platinum in Canada, and sold steadily in the US. Tours in the States that year included opening stints for Heart, .38 Special, ZZ Top, Journey, Starship, and Saga. The band also headlined a sold-out show at the Kingswood Music Theatre just north of Toronto.

For album number three, the band went to Los Angeles in the winter of 1987 to record with Ted Templeman (Little Feat, The Doobie Brothers, Van Halen), and while there Dee was hit by a car at L.A.X. airport breaking his leg in several places and requiring surgery for a ten inch pin to help the leg heal properly. While recovering in hospital, Doobie Brother Michael McDonald was brought in to help out with the recording sessions; he wrote lyrics and sang back up on one song. The results of all the hard work was ‘Racing After Midnight’, a slightly harder-edged more guitar oriented album that spawned a European tour with Status Quo and a headlining tour of Canada.

The Headpins
The Headpins are proud to officially announce and introduce our new lead vocalist — Katrina Lawrence. The multi-talented, gorgeous and charming “Kat” proved to us early on that she has what it takes to be the “Voice” of the Headpins. Kat's personality, skill set, and especially her vibe, have re-ignited our musical passion. We really dig Kat and we are absolutely certain you will too.

The Headpins have been going strong for over 37 years. Long time lead singer Darby Mills has moved on to pursue solo endeavours, we wish her the best.

Headpins are truly excited to begin a new chapter. Welcome aboard Katrina! Do your thing … and lets Turn It Up LOUDER than ever!!!
