The Dave Lewis Band

Dave Lewis (born 18 February 1951) is a singer-songwriter and musician from Northern Ireland. He was a member of the bands Method, Andwella's Dream, and Andwella.
After Andwella split up Lewis pursued a solo career as a singer-songwriter. In May 1975 he supported Don McLean at a concert in London's Hyde Park in front of an audience of 85,000. That same year, he also toured with Fairport Convention playing to packed audiences all over the UK. During 1975 Dave also wrote a hit song for Demis Roussos; "Happy To Be on an Island in the Sun", the song shot to No.1 all over Europe and went platinum.
Also in the 1970s Lewis released two solo albums – From Time to Time (Polydor 1976) co-produced by Chris Rainbow who also did back-up vocals, and engineered by Steve Lillywhite, and A Collection of Short Dreams (Polydor 1978). Around this time Lewis formed the Dave Lewis Band, first with the line up of Felix Krish (bass), Dave Rose (keyboards) and Preston Heyman (drums), the line-up later changed to Rob Townsend (drums), Charlie McCracken (bass) and Derek Beauchemin (keyboards).
