Killer, Cash and The King. All the music of all three of these wild and crazy Sun Records superstars is featured Saturday, Nov. 12 at the Cowichan Performing Arts Centre starting at 7:30 p.m.
This show, part of the Legends of Rock’n’Roll series, offers a wild and crazy look back at a golden age in music, back when Sun Records’ stable included three of the biggest names of the 1950s.
We’re talking about Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and a young Elvis Presley.
The aim of these presentations is to preserve the authentic sound of the music of those days, along with the high energy and extreme showmanship of three legendary singers. And three performers who are up to the job will blow the roof off the theatre, thrilling music fans of all ages.
Anyone who’s seen Lance Lipinsky’s tribute to Jerry Lee Lewis will agree: the boy can play. But he also brings that just-under-control edge that made Jerry Lee the showstopper he was.
Brandon Bennett as the young Elvis is no stranger to a Cowichan audience either. He’ll bring the swivel hips that shocked Ed Sullivan and parents worldwide along with all the great songs of that era.
And, to top it all off, the evening will include Philip Bauer as Johnny Cash, the Man in Black.
What more could you ask? A superb band and backup singers?
This show’s got them, too.
Tickets are $49 apiece. Get them online from cowichanpac.ca, in person at the Cowichan Ticket Centre or phone 250-748-7529 to reserve.
