The Lighthouse in Toronto, Canada.
This shot was taken in Toronto, before their performance in Carnegie Hall. 
  RCA sent me to Toronto to photograph their recent discovery, The group, Lighthouse. They were doing a gig in Toronto, then going to New York. I stayed with Skip Prokop, who was the drummer and one of the organizers of the group. Paul Hoffert, the other organizer, Ralph Cole, Pinky Dauvin and Grant Fullerton were the rock nucleus of the thirteen piece group. They were a great group of guys. I spent a lot of time with them in New York. Stories about Carnegie Hall, New York and Atlantic City (August 3, 1969), along with more photos will be forthcoming.

See the Lighthouse Band today.
They are still making that great music,
and many of the original group are still with them.
