Vancouver stalwart CHILLIWACK has its roots as the house band of the Torch Cabaret back in '66. Evolving shifts in style and personnel resulted in the emergence of the band we know and love. Through it all, the driving force remains Bill Henderson. From the release of their first single "Looking at a Baby" which quickly rose to number three in Canada to the twenty minute major opus "What Love: Suite" - a huge cult classic - onward to "Raino", "Lonesome Mary", "Crazy Talk", "Fly at Night", "Baby Blue", "California Girl", "Communication Breakdown", "My Girl (Gone Gone Gone)", and "Whatcha Gonna Do" this iconic Canadian label has produced 31 hit singles, 16 of them Top 40.
As The Collectors they composed and performed music for George Ryga's play Grass and Wild Strawberries, for the NFB's Don't Let Angels Fall, and for a multi-media presentation at the Canadian pavilion at Expo 70 in Osaka, Japan. Henderson, along with previous member Brian MacLeod took home a Juno Award for Best Producer (1982). Rolling Stone Magazine wrote, "At their best, Chilliwack was the finest Canadian rock band, out-rocking BTO and out-writing Burton Cummings."
