I’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who attended what I joked as an “entomologists dream line-up” – the Legends of Rock & Rock presenting a tribute concert of the Beatles AND Crickets. We played three packed venues in BC: the Mary Winspear in Sydney, the Port Theatre in Nanaimo, and the Cowichan Theatre in Duncan. The shows were very well received and we hope to reunite again for a more extensive tour sometime next year.
The Beatles are my long-time favourite band. It was a dream come true sharing the stage with the Fab Fourever. Not only was it a dream come true for me but I like to think we were living out a dream for the Beatles themselves. They were hugely inspired by Buddy but never got a chance to meet him in person. I think they would have gotten along nearly as well as we did 😉
Another dream came true for me on this tour. My dream girl, Molly Dee, made her dazzling debut performing in Canada. She lit up the stage performing highlights from Lulu and Dusty Springfield as well as forging a new act together as “the Everly Lovers”.
Next up: Molly Dee and I return along with the wild and wonderful piano talents of Lancy Lapinsky as Jerry Lee Lewis for a Rock & Roll Xmas in December. See sidebar for dates!
