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.”
