Harlequin was originally formed in the mid-seventies when they were discovered playing in a tiny bar in Toronto by representatives of Jack Douglas, legendary producer of Aerosmith, Patti Smith and John Lennon. Ironically, the scouts for Douglas’ company had actually intended to see Goddo, the band playing downstairs, but were turned away due to a sold out show. Instead they retired upstairs to a much smaller bar – only to be blown away by the band, playing a high-energy set of strong original songs for only a handful of people. This chance meeting led to a production deal with Douglas.
Their first album Victim of a Song (1979) obtained gold status featuring songs like ‘Sweet Things in Life’ and ‘You are the Light’. The second release, Love Crimes (1980), went Platinum, powered in part by Harlequin’s biggest hit ‘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.
With numerous hit singles and continuous airplay to this day, Harlequin is the epitome of Canadian Classic Rock, and the Regent Theatre is proud to host them for one night only!
