El Rio BBQ is proud to present "Only the Lonely" Tribute to Roy Orbison starring the incredible Michael Danckert on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
Re-creating the look, sound and mood of a Roy Orbison concert is no job for amateurs. It takes a seasoned pro, with the vocal range of an opera singer, to really pull it off. And the multi-talented Michael Danckert, from Toronto, Ontario, pulls it off amazingly well.
On stage, his quiet confidence and incredible four-octave voice bring the late star back to life in a seemingly effortless way.
As a teenager, Michael spent countless hours perfecting a craft that has turned into a full time career and turned him into a world class entertainer. Over the past 15 years, he has wowed Canadian audiences in venues as diverse as legion halls and concert hall and from casino lounges to corporate events.
One of the toughest problems facing any tribute artist is choosing the right songs. Performers often forget that audiences want to hear the songs they know and love, not obscure, difficult songs that merely show how good the performer's voice is. So, regardless of how easy or hard it may be to sing a particular song, if it was a hit, a performer can be pretty certain it's one the audience is expecting to hear. And even though he may be bored singing it, the audience will love it.
Michael Danckert knows the songs Orbison fans like to hear. This is why his show includes 30 of his hits, including: “Pretty Woman”, “Only The Lonely”, Running Scared”, “Crying”, “Uptown”, “In Dreams” and newer hits, like “California Blue”. As a seasoned entertainer, Michael knows his material and most importantly know his audience, which is why they return to his shows time after time.
Gates open at 6:30 pm and you can opt for the Dinner Show at 495 pesos per person or the Show Only (at 8:00) for 295 pesos.
