The Jarvis Street Revue

Jarvis Street Revue, TheFrom: Thunder Bay, ON, Canada

The Jarvis Street Revue (JSR) formed in the late 1960’s in the northern Ontario town of Thunder Bay. Members of the band included Tom Cruickshank (drums, vocals), Wayne Faulconer (guitar, vocals), Tommy Horricks (saxophone, guitar, vocals), and George Stevenson (bass, vocals). The band released their sole album, Mr. Oil Man, in 1970. The album was recorded at DMG Sound Studios in Thunder Bay.

JSR played the Spike Coffeehouse on three different occasions between 1970-1971, and recorded the largest total audience the place ever had with 445 people. The band’s first gig was at the Lakeview Lodge. After this, they moved to Hodder Tavern where Cruickshank left the band. He was replaced by Smokey Wickman. JSR would again move, this time to the Circle Inn. Faulconer left the band next, and was replaced by Terry Stiles. Horricks eventually left the band, and at this time, the group reorganized and renamed themselves the Rock N Roll Revue. In the fall of 1999, the Jarvis Street Revue reunited, 27 years after Cruickshank left the band. Larry Breiland, who had played with Horricks in Dubai and India, was added to the band.
