Streetheart:
Life. Legacy. Music.

2019 sees the return of Streetheart to playing live shows after a two year hiatus to mark and honour the passing of lead vocalist Kenny Shields in 2017.

Original founding members Daryl Gutheil and Ken “Spider” Sinnaeve along with Jeff Neill will be joined by Paul McNair (Harlequin) on lead vocals and David Langguth (Kim Mitchell/Nelly Furtado) on drums to reignite the songs and legacy of one of Canada’s most iconic R&R bands.

Since the band’s inception in 1977, Streetheart has always prided itself in presenting their music with a high level of skill, energy and execution and the new lineup promises a continuance of that long tradition.

A list of hits that includes Under My Thumb, Here Comes The Night, Hollywood, Tin Soldier, What Kind Of Love Is This and Action, along with the most requested tracks from their catalogue of platinum albums, guarantee Streetheart’s ability to deliver top quality, highly entertaining shows to their audiences night after night.

Harlequin:

Harlequin was, and still remains, something of a work-horse of the Canadian road, soldiering through multiple gruelling cross-Canada tours, and working with such bands as Triumph, Streetheart, Nazareth, Heart, April Wine, Pat Benatar and Saga. Saga took the band to Puerto Rico, where they discovered – to their shock and amazement – that “Innocence” had been a huge hit single. To capitalize on the song’s success, the band played in Caracas, Venezuela, headlining two nights at the city’s biggest arena. With Triumph, the band toured through the States and made some headway in the midwest and Texas.ing led to a production deal with Douglas.

With Douglas’ help, Harlequin signed a deal with CBS/Epic (home to Cheap Trick and Eddie Money) in 1979. The band proceeded to amaze everyone at the label by pushing the first release Victim of a Song (1979) to gold status through sheer hard work, incessant touring, word of mouth and solid song-writing. Songs like “Sweet Things In Life”, “You Are The Light” and “Survive” introduced the band to radio in many markets in Canada – especially Western Canada.

The second release, Love Crimes (1980), came with a bigger push from the label, and went on to go Platinum, powered in part by Harlequin’s biggest hit to date “Innocence”. Another track, “Thinking Of You”, became a staple of rock radio and a highlight of the live show.

One False Move (1982) cemented the band’s radio success with tunes like “I Did It For Love,” “Superstitious Feeling” and “Heart Gone Cold.” The fourth and final album, eponymously titled, featured a change of direction as well as producer – Alfie Agius, former bassist with The Fixx, replaced Jack Douglas. This album produced one single “Take This Heart” and the band’s only video, filmed at the abandoned Don jail in Toronto by Juno-winning Champagne Productions.
