Honeymoon Suite (band)
Honeymoon Suite are a Canadian rock band, based out of Niagara Falls, Ontario, who were most popular in the 1980s. The band's name was a nod to the fact that Niagara Falls is the unofficial honeymoon capital.
They were originally formed in 1982 by lead vocalist Johnny Dee and guitarist Derry Grehan . They soon signed with WEA Canada after they released their song "New Girl Now", which won them an unsigned band contest put on by Toronto radio station Q-107.
Their follow up album, The Big Prize , produced by Bruce Fairbairn, was equally successful, with four more hits in Canada, including "What Does It Take". Their song "Feel It Again" managed to reach the Top 40 in the US, but "What Does It Take" only reached no. 52, even buoyed by its inclusion on the soundtrack for the John Cusack film "One Crazy Summer ".
In 1988, they produced Racing After Midnight with Ted Templeman of Van Halen fame. That album did not do well in either Canada nor the US. In 1991, they released a greatest hits compilation, including the theme from the American movie Lethal Weapon. In 2002, they released a new album Lemon Tongue .
