The Best of Country Music

Donny Lee, a popular Nashville entertainer, brings the most requested country songs of all time to Red Deer for one night only. If you love the sound of real country music you don't want to miss this special show.

'Down to Earth good guy that knows no strangers' describes Donny Lee perfectly- As a young Hamilton Ontario performer, I discovered my natural charisma and talent of connecting with people while entertaining and singing country music in my parents country music band. I am happy to follow my passion to this day and continue to entertain country music fans from all over the world on the main stages of Nashville where I have been playing since 2014. I recently recorded my own album of 10 songs, including 7 originals. In 2017 I released 2 originals 'Country Way Of Life' and That Would Be Me' to Canadian Country Radio which were well received. I am working with Ole Music Publishing and have recorded 'Another Round Of You' written by Blake Shelton's writers and am working on completing more original music in 2018 while branching my show into Canada. It is my mission to ensure country music fans have the best experience possible and I am very passionate about engaging with the crowd. It is my goal to share my love of entertaining country music fans on a larger platform to bigger audiences. I've heard many times from patrons "we came to check out the band and to have a drink but ended up staying for your whole 4 hour show because we loved your show so much" That's music to my ears. If I can create a memorable and happy experience for someone then I have succeeded. I look forward to my future in Country music.

The Lonely - the Music of Roy Orbison

36531119_1761676623940177_8859018648191238144_n.jpg

With hits of The Traveling Wilburys and Everly Brothers

Rock.It Boy Entertainment proudly presents THE LONELY - CELEBRATING THE MUSIC OF ROY ORBISON on Wednesday, October 17 at The Red Deer Memorial Centre, 4214 - 58th Street, Red Deer. Tickets are $47.50 (plus Facility Fee & Service Charges) at the Black Knight Ticket Centre. Charge by phone at 403-755-6626; 1-800-661-8793, or online at www.tickets.blackknightinn.ca.

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”. As a part of THE TRAVELING WILBURYS Orbison brought us “End of the Line”, “Handle With Care” and “Last Night”. A prolific writer, Orbison pitched “Claudette” to The Everly Brothers. The track was a co-number one with the Everlys’ “All I Have to Do is Dream”. Orbison and The Everly Brothers tore the house down on TV’s Shindig performing Roy’s “What’d I Say”. 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 - CELEBRATING THE MUSIC OF ROY ORBISON approaches the music with a humble spirit and sincere desire to recreate the sounds and feel of the original recordings. The band has been selling out shows right from their debut.

For 4 decades I worked in the music industry. The one constant has been the music of Roy Orbison. When I heard that a Roy Orbison Tribute was coming to town I said, ‘Well this I have to see.’ THE LONELY blew me away! exclaims David Chesney, Publisher White Rock Sun, Canada’s FIRST Internet Newspaper.

Tina Coldwell of TLC Entertainment says, “One of the best tributes I’ve seen and I’ve been in the biz for 22 years.”

An Evening in Concert with... MURRAY McLAUCHLAN

Murray McLauchlan Sitting.jpg

Murray McLauchlan is one of Canada’s most highly regarded singer/songwriters, and with good cause. Over a 40-year career, he has released 18 albums and been awarded 11 Junos. His songs Farmer’s Song, Down by the Henry Moore, Whispering Rain and Sweeping the Spotlight Away are now considered Canadian standards. Murray is also a painter, an author, an actor, a radio host; he's been bestowed an Honourary Doctor of Laws and appointed to The Order of Canada. That’s quite a ride. Until recently Murray’s touring had been restricted to Lunch At Allen's, whose members also include Ian Thomas, Marc Jordan and Cindy Church. But with the release of his critically acclaimed  Love Can’t Tell Time, he’s back on the road treating concert goers to a seamless blend of old and new.

 

Here’s what he has to say: “As a songwriter I know that it's not enough to sit in your kitchen and write. Your songs need to be heard. Music is a communicative art and if it isn't brought in front of people there is no way to tell if that end has been met. I like to think of a concert tour as a kind of roving gallery to test your art and your ideas. I try to do my very best to make it worthwhile for folks to be there and to perhaps look at things in a new way when they leave.”

And this, in a nutshell, is the Murray McLauchlan concert experience.

 More Than A Tribute!

Hank_Williams_JASON_PETTY_2017_TourPoster_BIG.jpg

 Direct from the historic stages of Nashville Tennessee comes “Hank Williams – The Lonesome Tour” starring Jason Petty in a show that will instantly transform you back to the early 1950’s when Hank Williams Senior was the biggest name in country music anywhere.

When Jason Petty first performed the role of Hank at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium in 1996, little did he imagine that some twenty years later he would still be portraying this legendary man in his own highly acclaimed show.

As his research on Hank progressed, Petty met and became friends with Williams’ friends, family members, musicians, and fellow Grand Ole Opry stars. They took him into their confidence and shared intimate details of this legend’s life and career. From the good times to the hard times, Jason listened and began to understand this man like no other. Now be brings that intimate story to life in this new one-man tribute – “Hank Williams – The Lonesome Tour”.

Don Helms, Hank’s best friend and steel guitar player, very simply stated: “Jason’s singing of Williams’ classic songs is the best there’s ever been”. This feeling combined with his natural ability to tell the stories of Hank’s life and career with southern charm and down home humour has given this show rave reviews across North America.

Sit back and relax and let Jason Petty transform you back to another day and time… the days of Hank Williams. This will be an evening the audience will never forget.

“OH WHAT A NIGHT!” – THE CHRISTMAS SHOW

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND IN 2018!

The cast of “OH WHAT A NIGHT!”, the internationally renowned tribute to Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, celebrates the Christmas season with a show that returns to Canada by popular demand… one that definitely creates “holiday sparkle”.

In the “OH WHAT A NIGHT!” Christmas show the cast will warm you up with some of the most popular songs from their fast paced musical tribute to the legendary Frankie Valli and then transform you into a Christmas wonderland with a brand new tribute to “Mr. Christmas” himself – the great ANDY WILLIAMS. “OH WHAT A NIGHT!” Is an in-depth musical revue, bringing to life thirty of the Four Seasons' hits. It's a captivating tribute to the songbook of this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame super group with note-perfect renditions of the iconic "Jersey boys"! The show features 4 talented performers singing live that “feel good” music you grew up with that made the name Frankie Valli known around the globe. In the 1960’s and 70’s the ANDY WILLIAMS television show was a staple in households around the world and his annual Christmas shows were some of the most anticipated specials ever made. His “Moon River” Theatre (named after his signature song) was the first non-country music theatre to be opened in Branson Mo., and allowed this iconic performer to remain in front of his loyal fans until shortly before his passing. The talented cast of “OH WHAT A NIGHT!” easily recreates the legendary sound of “Andy Williams and the Williams Brothers” with such songs as “It’s The Holiday Season”, “Jingle Bells”, “The Christmas Song”, “White Christmas”, “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” (which was written specifically for The Andy Williams Show), and of course “Moon River”. “Everybody loves these songs. The melodies and harmonies are great to sing and the songs are always a special memory for somebody”, says producer George Solomon. Staying true to the original recordings this tribute to Frankie Valli & Andy Williams honours the talents of two American legends. Don’t miss this incredible musical experience.
