"Elvis and Orbison: The Voices of Rock" Performing at Woodstock, June 20th
John, Danny J, and the fabulous Legendaires Show Band will be performing at Woodstock. Not the famous music festival from 1969, but the historic Woodstock Opera House in Woodstock, Illinois, just a short drive south of Lake Geneva. An all-new show pays tribute to these two incredible legends. The opera house and Woodstock town square were featured prominently in the movie "Groundhog Day" starring Bill Murray. Get your tickets early...last year's show was sold out. Details below.

A Rockin' Spring with the King
Had enough cabin fever? Warm weather is coming, so rock in the spring with the King at this fundraiser for St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Racine. Come for the family-style dinner and enjoy the concert afterward. Money helps the church celebrate their 50th anniversary. Details below.

Help Out These Great Causes
John's also helping raise money for cancer victim Kayla Krueger and to help stamp out Type 1 diabetes. Come join in the effort and enjoy some great Elvis. The "Hawaiian Luau" diabetes fundraiser is March 28th in Racine, and Kayla's "Give Cancer a Lickin'" is April 18th in Sturtevant. Details below.

Elvis and Orbison: The Voices of Rock
Woodstock Opera House
121 Van Buren St.
Woodstock, IL
815.338.5300

Two legendary voices. One unforgettable tribute. Returning to the Woodstock Opera House with an all new show, Elvis and Orbison: The Voices of Rock is an unforgettable tribute to two of music’s greatest legends.

Elvis Presley was undeniably the King of Rock ‘N’ Roll, a transformer of popular music and culture, and the original American idol. He touched countless millions with his performances. Yet even he acknowledged that Roy Orbison was “quite simply the greatest singer in the world.” With his haunting operatic voice and mysterious persona, Orbison could move audiences while standing still.

Tribute artists John Van Thiel and Danny J, together with the fabulous Legendaires Show Band, will take you on a mesmerizing musical journey through the careers of both stars as they reverently recreate the magic that made Elvis and Orbison so beloved.

Tickets
Tickes are $35 all seats and are available by calling the box office or online. Convenience fees apply.
