Kootenay Concerts



One of the top tribute acts in North America will be making a stop at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre on Friday, May 13th. The Lonely is a highly acclaimed tribute to all-time music great, Roy Orbison.

From 1960 to 1964, Roy Orbison landed 22 songs on the Billboard Top 40, including Only the Lonely, Crying, and Pretty Woman. His impassioned voice, bridging the gap between baritone and tenor, coupled with his signature arrangements ensured the charting of the hits, Only the Lonely, Pretty Woman, Dream Baby, Ooby Dooby, Blue Angel, Blue Bayou, You Got it, In Dreams, Candy Man, Mystery Girl, and many more. Tragically, like many other wonderful artists of his time, 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 his group of musical journeymen in their mutual and deep appreciation of the timeless music of one of the greatest artists of our time. The Lonely features a seven-piece band including, two highly talented female backup vocalists which was an Orbison trademark on most of his hit records. The tribute to Roy Orbison approaches the music with a humble spirit and sincere desire to recreate the sounds and the feel of the original recordings.

The band has been selling out shows right from their debut just one year ago. Tina Coldwell of TLC Entertainment says: “This is one of the best tributes I’ve ever seen and I’ve been in the business for 22 years.”
