Few bands have a rock pedigree like The Guess Who. See this legendary band perform 45 years of hits in The Island Showroom this winter.
Catch One of Rock’s Best-Loved Bands
The Guess Who will delight fans old and new with their high energy show spanning their long illustrious career. Says original drummer 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.”
An Unparalleled Resume of Rock ‘n Roll Hits
The Guess Who had 14 Top 40 hits during their long career. Their timeless balladry and familiar song hooks feel as relevant today as when they were first performed. Dig into the archives and enjoy some of these favorites:
A Band With a History of A-List Members
Canadian’s favorite sons, The Guess Who, formed in Winnipeg in 1965. Through many line-ups and membership changes, the band has maintained their integrity and high level of musicianship. The current touring iteration finds original drummer Garry Peterson flanked on stage by a cast of all-star rock-n-roll veterans:
- Derek Sharp – guitar player and singer extraordinaire since 2008
- William Evankovich – lead guitar. Played with Styx, Night Ranger, Vince Neil and more
- Leonard Shaw – Keys and horns, a staple of the band for 20 years
- Rudy Sarzo – Bass guitar and legend, endorsed by Jim Kale; played with Quiet Riot, Ozzy and many others
In 2018, the current band line up (who were eager to add to the Guess Who legacy) released the album The Future Is What it Used to Be. Leading off with the up-tempo rocker “Playin’ on the Radio”, the album finds the band in top form. The song itself is a celebration of radio airwaves and the songs that have become the soundtrack to our lives. Learn more at The Guess Who homepage.
