Tiny Lights was a music group formed by John Hamilton and Donna Croughn in 1985. Original members include Dave Dreiwitz, Jane Scarpantoni and Andy Demos. Based in Hoboken, New Jersey, the group released a total of seven albums, two of which were later released on Psychic TV's Temple Records. From 1988 to 1994 Tiny Lights toured the United States extensively. Other members include Stuart Hake (cello), John Mastro (drums), Catherine Bent (cello), Andy Burton (piano, organ), and Ron Howden (drums--formerly the drummer for Nectar). The group's members employed a rich array of instrumentation, including cello, electric violin, soprano saxophone, tabla drums and bass clarinet. Improvisation was a constant feature of their live performances. One critic has memorably described the band as "Sly and the Family Partridge." Dave Dreiwitz went on to play bass for the band Ween. Jane Scarpantoni has enjoyed an illustrious career, recording and touring for countless artists, including Lou Reed, The Indigo Girls, Bruce Springsteen, and the Lounge Lizards. John Hamilton and Donna Croughn are raising their two children in Cambridge, Mass., where John works as a Professor of Comparative Literature at Harvard University.
