Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Greg "The Beat" Lightle began honing his musical chops playing drums in Ottawa Ontario with the White Water Band, Nebula, and then on to be a member of Eddy and the Stingrays (still playing). After the Stingrays Greg moved on to Alien, Windsor, The Smokin' Caterpillars, and finally The Maria Hawkins Band. (still playing)
In 2001 he left the Nation’s Capital and came to Toronto: the Rock & Roll Capital of Canada.
After playing a stint with Shania Twain on her “Up” tour he set up his drum kit north of the city behind Concession Seven, Shady O'Grady and pounded out the blues with Jawbone & the Rhythm Daredevils.
The bright lights and concert halls brought Greg back down to Toronto again. He joined Opal Blue and then Morning Fame before heading north again to keep the beat with Double or Nothing.
Greg’s ability as a solid, steady rhythm player who always hits the mark has garnered him a reputation in both the recording studio and on the concert stage.
Today Greg “The Beat” Lightle is a member of the Sandra Good Band.
