Mike Demers performs as the one and only Roy Orbison in solo tribute show

Blue Bridge Theatre presents Mike Demers as Roy Orbison on Thursday, Oct. 15 at the Roxy. A perfect act for this historic, vintage theatre.

“We are really excited to be hosting Mr. Demers. Not everyone has the ability to perform a Roy Orbison tribute, because they would need a five octave voice to do so. He is incredibly talented, the audience is in for a real treat,” says Rebekah Johnson, General Manager of Blue Bridge Theatre.

Demers has been playing music and touring across Canada since the late 1980s. In 2014, he joined with Benji Coey to form a Roy Orbison tribute band called The Lonely, and they have been incredibly well received since then. They have toured throughout B.C. with a Western Canadian Tour on the horizon.

Demers will be doing a solo performance for this one-night-only event, featuring the local ‘lawyer-band’ Blind Elmo as the opening act.

The audience can expect an evening filled with mega-hits such Crying, Pretty Woman, and Only the Lonely. Buy tickets online at ticketrocket.co or by phone 250-590-6291.

Details:

Doors at 7 p.m.

Opening Act at 7:30 p.m.

Where: The Roxy Theatre, 2657 Quadra St.
