Al Harlow and Jerry Doucette each had so much fun last time they performed in Langley, that the two music icons jumped at the chance to come back again.
The duo, longtime friends and industry associates, will be back in town next week.
"We're excited about getting in front of a Langley audience again - it's a homecoming," Harlow told the Langley Advance.
He and the rest of the legendary rock band Prism, are headlining at Cascades Casino on Nov. 22, and they've invited Doucette along for the ride.
Prism, of course, made a name for itself in the 1980s with a number of award-winning and chart-topping songs such as Night to Remember and Armageddon. And the music has lived on through the decades. In fact, just last year, the crew of the STS-133 Discovery was awakened by the soaring lyrics of Spaceship Superstar, to begin the last day of their mission. That elevated Prism to inter-galactic stardom.
Well, they're at Cascades' Summit Theatre next Thursday for an 8 p.m. show, and they'll be joined by a special guest, Doucette, who's earned his own accolades and awards through the years as a veteran guitarist.
Prism played Cascades in November 2010, again with Doucette on that bill at that time too.
"Langley is the home of rock," Harlow said.
"Historically, the club scene has always been vibrant, and personally, I've been playing Langley in bands since I was a kid," said the Vancouver-based musician, who reiterated his excitement about being back in Langley next week.
Tickets for their show are $35 from 604-530-2211, or online at www.ticketweb.ca.
