Founding member Al Harlow’s showmanship drives Prism forward with award-winning alumni Gary Grace, Tad Goddard and Marc Gladstone’s brilliant performances of the trademark Prism sound.

What the critics are saying:
“It’s not like they ever really left. The guys … continue to rock with energy”
“HOUSTON – The Space Shuttle Discovery crew members’… last day started with the wakeup song “Spaceship Superstar” by PRiSM. It was chosen for all Discovery crew members by the team of flight controllers who have been supporting them throughout the mission.”

“They’re hardy, these Can-Rock survivors. Prism still enjoy the support of a large and loyal community of fans. They constitute an underground economy of sorts, selling out casinos and clubs as they perennially make their way across the country, joining up for summer classic rock fests in the USA.”
“Solar-powered laser-beam guitar! …Prism worked up the crowd of 1,000 Friday night at the CN Centre with some classic Canadian rock. These guys are worthy Canadian rock pioneers and deserve to still be on stage bashing out tunes like Armageddon and Spaceship Superstar… Natural leader Al Harlow …did the group proud. He also lit up a slide blues solo that brought down the house. They are a professional band with a list of hits and a history of success that should not be underestimated.”
“Prism unloaded ten chestnuts spanning Spaceship Superstar, Flying, Night to Remember, Take Me Away, Young & Restless, Take Me to the Kaptin to Armageddon. Highlights included Gary Grace’s drum solo and guitar work of hambone Harlow … In all the evening was a well-orchestrated rock down memory lane…rating: 8.5 earplugs out of ten.”
