Look People was an alternative rock band formed in 1985 in Toronto. They had a moderate hit in 1991 with a cover of War’s “Low Rider”, and received five CASBY Award nominations for their CD Small Fish, Big Pond. Following the band’s 1991 album Boogazm, Look People made their most successful European tour, and toured Canada twice. In 1992, Look People became the house band for the CBC Television variety show Friday Night with Ralph Benmergui, with Jaymze Bee at the helm as music director and artistic consultant.
