The Guess Who
As the house lights fade down and the stage spots flare-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 to 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 rollercoaster 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 multi-millions and more drama than a VH1 Behind the Music episode and an E! True Hollywood Story
The name is none other than The Guess Who, a group that’s connected with the masses throughout an 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 history.
