Aurora’s Ribfest is once again ready rock with performances by two iconic Canadian rock bands – Honeymoon Suite and the Spoons. The bands are set to perform at Aurora’s Ribfest on Friday, August 23 and Saturday, August 24 at Machell Park.
Honeymoon Suite is a Canadian hard rock band formed in 1981 hailing from Niagara Falls. The band's name was a nod to the fact that Niagara Falls is the unofficial honeymoon capital of the world. The band came out with the hit New Girl Now in 1984, which landed on the top 30 chart in Canada that year and also reached the U.S. singles chart. The follow-up album, 1985's The Big Prize included the Canadian hits Feel It Again and What Does It Take. By 1986, the band won Juno Group of the Year Award.
The Spoons are a Canadian new wave synthpop band, formed in 1979 hailing from Burlington. They recorded several Canadian chart hits between 1982 and 1989 and in 1983 they won Group of the Year at the U-Know awards. Early in the band’s career they opened for the Police, Joan Jett and toured with Culture Club. Their top hits include Nova Heart, Romantic Traffic and Old Emotions.
Honeymoon Suite will perform on Friday evening at 9 p.m. and The Spoons will perform on Saturday evening at 9 p.m.
