The Stampeders

October 27 @ 7:30PM

Tickets are $55.00.  THE STAMPEDERS ~ IN CONCERT 
‘They're on their way, to the city lights’ ... and, THE predominant Canadian Rock ‘n’ Roll band of the 1970s – The Stampeders – are bringing along all their classic hits: Wild Eyes, Carry Me, Oh My Lady, Devil You, Monday Morning Choo Choo, Minstrel Gypsy, Hit the Road Jack and, of course, the quintessential Canadian – and Hall of Fame – song, Sweet City Woman!  A veritable soundtrack to a whole generation that will ‘carry you home’ ... maybe not to Birmingham ... but back to a time of tie-dyed t-shirts and elevator shoes, 15¢ coffee and homemade apple pie, dating and dreaming ...  By the time The Stampeders get to the first chorus of the first song, everyone will be singing along. 
No seventies group represented Canada's musical identity to the world like The Stampeders. A quick look at Canada's music scene from 1971 until 1976 confirms The Stampeders were truly the country's international musical ambassadors, touring more extensively in Canada and overseas than any other Canadian group during that time.  In 1977 the trio: Rich Dodson (lead guitar), Kim Berly (drums) and Ronnie King (bass) parted company but reunited, fittingly at the Calgary Stampede, 15 years later in 1992.  Since then they’ve been recognized by SOCAN for their Lifetime Achievement, been inducted into the SOCAN Songwriters Hall of Fame on five occasions and the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame for their 1971 seminal hit Sweet City Woman.                                                                                                                    
The enduring musical legacy of The Stampeders... 'better catch a noon train, better get there for a rock 'n' rolling good time!’

Class of '59

October 28 @ 7:30PM

October 28th at 7:30pm


 Bobby Brooks Wilson has been added to the Class of ’59 2016 touring cast. Wilson, for those that haven't had the privilege, is the quintessential Motown entertainer who has a way of becoming the undisputed hit of any musical production he is part of. And, with Lance Lipinsky and Jeff Giles on the same show… that is really saying something. Wilson’s story is even better…

               Bobby Brooks Wilson, known as Bobby Brooks back in the 1990's, broke into show business portraying Jackie Wilson in the original Waikiki production of “Legends in Concert.” He was discovered by a Legends in Concert talent scout who suggested he perform a tribute to Jackie Wilson because of his uncanny likeness to the 1950’s recording star. Audiences found him an unusually close natural look-alike, especially for a tribute artist, and he went on to international success portraying the legendary 1950's entertainer.

               Overcoming early foster care and personal tragedies that read like a work of fiction, Bobby Brooks never knew his father… much less that he was a famous father. Through various acts of fate, he finally met some of Jackie Wilson’s family members. After comparing family time-lines, it was discovered that Brooks could be the son of the late, great R&B recording artist Jackie Wilson. With the aid of one of Wilson's family members, it was officially confirmed through a DNA test that Jackie Wilson was indeed his biological father. The Wilson’s have since accepted Bobby as family and a new duet video featuring Bobby superimposed singing with his father is now being planned for the future.

               Buddy Holly and The Killer… will be playing guitar and piano, respectively, in the all-star Legends Band including “Big Bopper” on string bass plus guest performers… Young Elvis, Bill Haley, the Everly Brothers and introducing Bobby Brooks Wilson as Jackie Wilson and Sam Cook.

              Don’t miss Class of ’59… it’s a fabulous “oldies” rock’n’roll show… when the music was raw, pure and simple and played the way it’s supposed to be played… on tour in Canada during the fall of 2016.
