The Guess Who
The Guess Who
As the house lights fade down and the stage spots flair up, the sounds of rock and
roll with classic sensibilities and progressive nuances permeate the crowd. At first a
familiar chord strikes everyone's attention, then comes a catchy chorus followed by
a memorable solo or remarkable moment of improvisation. Such an ear-pleasing
arsenal carries into a non-stop evening of precise performance taking fans on a
roller coaster ride of electric instrumentation, timeless balladry, unpredictable
jamming and the ultimate sing-a-long experience. It's a position held by a troupe of
true musical luminaries who through over five decades in show business have been
loaded with more hits than members can count, record sales well into the multimillions
and more drama than a VH1 "Behind the Music" episode and an E! "True
Hollywood Story" documentary combined.
The name is none other than The Guess Who, a group that's connected with the
masses throughout a exultant hit parade spanning fourteen Top 40 hits, including
"These Eyes," "Clap For the Wolfman," "Hand Me Down World," "No Time," "Star
Baby" and "Share the Land." Add in fellow classics and double sided singles like
their #1 rock anthem "American Woman" and "No Sugar Tonight," plus "Laughing"
and "Undun," and the Canadian bred stateside conquerors are amongst music's most
indelible treasures who are eternally etched within the very fabric of pop culture
"You're going to see an excellent version of the songs and hear exactly how they
should sound or be played," verifies founding member and original
drummer/songwriter Garry Peterson. "We're coming at a new generation of fans
who are seeing how the band can execute with enthusiasm. And we're also making
sure the respect level remains at an all time high for how the music was initially
recorded and remains at an all time high for the fans who have been with the band
from the beginning."
Joining Peterson onstage are veteran musicians keyboard player/flutist Leonard
Shaw, lead guitarist Will Evankovich, bass legend Rudy Sarzo, and lead
vocalist/guitarist Derek Sharp. Together the quintet annually launches an
ambitious North American tour to adoring audiences and selling out venues with
their awe-inspiring
