He’s the man with the sunglasses and the black suit who delivered some of the world’s darkest and most emotional ballads, yet Texas-born Roy Orbison remains one of the most distinctive looking, and sounding performers in modern music.  The one and only Barry Steele take’s on the role in The Roy Orbison Story. He comes with great credentials and a genuine admiration for the Big “O”. Now he is set to put the rock back into Roy Orbison as he takes to the stage to commemorate this legend in The Roy Orbison Story.

Expect what is being billed as an upbeat and contemporary slant on Orbison’s legacy, as Barry Steele and Friends take audiences on a musical journey from the early Sun years right through to the late 1980s, when Orbison was experiencing a huge resurgence in popularity and worked with Bono, Bruce Springsteen and others including super group the Traveling Wilburys alongside former Beatle George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne

Get ready for a night of solid gold 60s hits and 80s contemporary genius as the Roy Orbison Story celebrates the musical legacy of The Big O. The production also features not only original material written by but never sung by Roy Orbison, it also showcases chart busting hits originally made famous by Jerry Lee Lewis, Jeff Lynne, Del Shannon, Chris Isaak, The Spencer Davis Group and The Traveling Wilburys; Barry Steele has been stunning audiences with his uncanny ability to recreate the vocal talents of the legendary Roy Orbison, winning rave reviews across the globe.

As tribute acts go it’s difficult to define this one by the genre it’s meant to fall into. Not because Steele and friends don’t come up to standard as tribute acts go, but because they well and truly exceed it.  Ipswich Star
