The Lonely: Celebrating the Music of Roy Orbison

Arts & Culture

April 21, 2019 - 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Repeats: daily until March 12, 2019.

Conexus Arts Centre, 200 Lakeshore Dr.

The Big O was unmistakable with his trademark sunglasses, distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions and dark emotional ballads. 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." Mike Demers delivers a spot-on performance of Orbison's signature sound.
