Tribute to Roy Orbison in Chilliwack Wednesday night

The Lonely - A Tribute to Roy Orbison comes to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Wednesday, March 2

The Lonely – A Tribute to Roy Orbison comes to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Wednesday, March 2, bringing the distinctive voice, complex compositions and the dark emotional ballads that set Orbison apart.

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. The Lonely – A Tribute to Roy Orbison approaches the music with a humble spirit and sincere desire to recreate the sounds and feel of the original recordings.
