About Edison Lighthouse

"Love Grows" 100% Live; 100% Fun; 3million monthly listeners online; Bringing the magic of the 60s and 70s to audiences worldwide
Pop band
Public liability insurance of £5 million

The Tony Mcauley and Barry Mason composition “Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes” provided the first breakthrough for session singer Tony Burrows and Edison Lighthouse in 1970, selling 4.5 million copies worldwide. Whilst Tony Burrows success continued with White Plains, Brotherhood of Man and First Class, his original backing group toured briefly under the name Edison. Tony Mcauley meanwhile retained the name “Edison Lighthouse” and recorded “It’s Up To You Petula”, which provided a second hit in 1971 and this line-up maintained the success with live performances around the world, building a reputation for providing top class entertainment. Since the early seventies the band has featured Brian Huggins as lead singer and front man, with Peter Butt on bass guitar and vocals, joined by session pro Mark Forton on drums and vocals, lead guitarist Rick Piggott and keyboardist Matthew Bason complete the line-up. The band performs at most of the UK’s prestigious venues and has worked for Cunard Cruises on many occasions, keeping a full diary for over fifty years. 2022 has seen a huge resurgence in popularity following “Love Grows” being adopted by the TikTok generation as a soundtrack for video streams. A young lady in Australia started the trend with her first video and it sparked an incredible 1.3 million videos to be made worldwide including by celebrities the likes of Drew Barrymore. The combined viewing of these videos totals in excess of 4.5 billion streams, taking “Love Grows” back into the Spotify and iTunes charts. In February 2022, due to the enduring love of the song and band and this massive response the Band has released a new single on the Island Records label called “Love Grows in Rosemarys Disco (Club remix version) which in a very short time frame has wracked up 500,000 downloads on Spotify, over 500,000 views on online and is tearing it up on the Club circuits in the UK and overseas. The tour line-up that still exists today released a re-record on the original and that alone has delivered in excess of 9 million downloads for us, such is the love for this song and the band. The fact that Edison Lighthouse today is still in such huge demand is a testament to the love people have for the band, the songs and the fact that, as live performers we are as strong as ever, with a big sound, a lively show, powerful harmonies and top-class musicianship.

Just a quick line to say an enormous Thank You! for your superb performance last night. We have never seen our dance floor so full for so long, and your banter with the audience made for a truly memorable night. We are looking forward to putting on another show with you next year.

Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes. We are not a band that uses deputies, unless we have to (eg illness).

Do you have different line-up options?

We are a 5-piece band for all performances.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?


How much time do you need to set up?

A very thorough set up and sound-check can take 1 hour. We can set up quicker if needed, but we take pride in our set-up and sound and we would want to do the best for you. If set-up time might be difficult for your event, please contact us and we can see what we can do to accommodate.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?


Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you.
