Rock.It Boy Entertainment presents The Lonely – Celebrating The Music of Roy Orbison Friday, Jan. 20 at the Sid Williams Theatre.
The Big O was unmistakable with his trademark sunglasses, his distinctive, powerful voice, his complex compositions and the dark emotional ballads we all love.
From 1960 to ’64 Roy Orbison landed 22 songs on the Billboard Top 40, including Only The Lonely, Crying, and Oh, Pretty Woman. His impassioned voice, bridging the gap between baritone and tenor, coupled with his signature arrangements ensured the charting of the hits Dream Baby, Ooby Dooby, Blue Angel, Blue Bayou, You Got It, and In Dreams. Tragically, his life was cut short, leaving us only the music.
And, long may the music live. The Lonely delivers a sensitive and dynamic tribute to the one and only Roy Orbison. Veteran Mike Demers leads this group of musical journeymen in their mutual and deep appreciation of the timeless music of the Caruso of Rock.
Tickets are $42.50 (plus facility fees and service charges) at the Sid Williams Theatre box office. Charge by phone at 250-338-2430 or 1-866-898-8499 or online at www.sidwilliamstheatre.com.
