Honeymoon Suite is a Canadian rock band that was formed in 1981 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The band’s name was inspired by the fact that Niagara Falls is the unofficial honeymoon capital of the world. The band was originally formed by Johnnie Dee (vocals, guitar), Brad Bent (keyboards, vocals) and Mike Lengyell (drums, formerly with The Diodes).

The band’s primary songwriter is Derry Grehan, who wrote the hit song “New Girl Now” that won them an unsigned band contest put on by Toronto radio station Q107. The band’s self-titled debut album was released in June 1984 and featured four charting hits in Canada: “New Girl Now,” “Burning In Love,” “Wave Babies,” and "Stay In the Light". Their follow-up album, The Big Prize, was equally successful in Canada with four more hits: “Bad Attitude,” “Feel It Again,” “What Does It Take,” and "All Along You Knew".

The band has gone through several line-up changes over the years, but Johnnie Dee remains the only original member.
