Multi-platinum Canadian recording artists Honeymoon Suite with over a million CD's sold world wide over their 25 year career and still touring, recording and rocking out harder and better than ever!
Johnnie Dee formed the first incarnation of Honeymoon Suite in Toronto in 1981, with original drummer Mike Lengyell, and established the nucleus of the band. They added 3 other players to roundout the lineup with bass, keyboards and guitar. They worked hard in that first year but the lineup was short lived and changes were already in the air. In 1982, Johnnie was introduced to Derry Grehan by manager Steve Prendergast. Deciding to work together, they re-formed Honeymoon Suite adding Ray Coburn on keys and then Grehan's former Steve Blimkie and the Reason bandmate Dave Betts on drums.

Draw The Line: Authentically raised in Boston, MA, this organic show has been cultivated from the very roots that inspired & drive Aerosmith to this day. A powerful transformation of character far beyond just a tribute group, this remarkable show will give you goose bumps with the memories of the 70's, bringing you the feel of the 80's and with all the exuberance of the 90's. Adding in its great audience interaction, it is a definitive crowd pleaser for all age groups.
The true distinction in the show is the Steven Tyler doppelganger Neill Byrnes. Not only does he naturally look like the infamous Rock Icon, but his voice naturally sounds like Tyler! He has the tone, the mannerisms and the attitude of America's favorite rocker! Byrnes has himself been born & raised in the Boston area and has been a musician since the age of 9. Starting with the trombone, then drums, then bass and eventually graduating from the New England Conservatory of Music. Only two months into Draw the Line, he met Tyler at a lookalike contest and Tyler was so impressed by his raw talent that he referred Neill to his personal vocal coach. Byrnes spent ten years in vocal training with Tyler's own vocal coach Mark Baxter during his college tenure at Northeastern University and beyond. Having received his degree cum laude in Psychology, Byrnes nevertheless decided to pursue his musical interest through Draw the Line. He continues to hone his craft by pursuing other acting paths as well as keeping up with Tyler's wardrobe & stage antics.
