POWERHOUSE, in its 30-year existence has played well over 1000 shows in festivals, clubs, theatres, private functions and corporate events in places everywhere from the US midwest to across the pond in Portugal and the Azores Islands.  The band, consisting of a full three-piece horn section, five-piece rhythm section and multi-lead vocalists, was originally formed to emulate the 60's soul/horn bands, revived again by the first Blues Brothers movie.  As the band developed, it retained this early Motown/Soul/R&B ‘feel’ while adding newer mostly horn and vocal-dominant material to their show.  Over the years, and through many personnel changes, the band has collected a wealth of material suitable for anything from intimate corporate events to a night of dancing in the clubs or large-venue, sit-down, outdoor festivals.  Although the band is well-travelled, playing shows throughout eastern and central North America, POWERHOUSE continues to perform regularly to a strong local following near their home base of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada where their trademark ‘wall-of-sound’ first originated, thirty years ago.
