The BIG O was unmistakable with his trademark sunglasses, distinctive, powerful voice, complex compositions and dark emotional ballads. His impassioned voice coupled with his signature arrangements ensured the charting of the hits “Only The Lonely”, “Crying”, “Oh, Pretty Woman”, “Dream Baby”, “Ooby Dooby”, “Blue Angel”, “Blue Bayou”, “You Got It” and “In Dreams”. As a part of THE TRAVELING WILBURYS Orbison brought us “End of the Line”, “Handle With Care” and “You're Not Alone Anymore”.
The Everly Brothers charted 31 singles on the Hot 100, including 12 top 10 hits. Because their career predates the Hot 100's launch, some of their best-known hits aren't on the list, including “Bye Bye Love”, “Wake Up Little Susie”, “All I Have to Do Is Dream” and their single biggest hit “Cathy’s Clown”.
THE LONELY delivers a sensitive and dynamic tribute to the one and only Roy Orbison plus the hits of The Traveling Wilburys and The Everly Brothers. Veteran Mike Demers delivers a spot-on performance of Orbison’s signature sound as he leads this group of musical journeymen in their mutual and deep appreciation of the timeless music of an era. THE LONELY approaches the music with a humble spirit and sincere desire to recreate the sounds and feel of the original recordings. The band has been selling out shows right from their debut.
Regarding THE LONELY Cliff and Ann Wilder of Tumwater, WA exclaim, “WOW!!! Just...WOW!!! Thanks for the FANTASTIC MEMORIES!!!” Owen Rizzo adds, “Great Show! You truly embody the spirit of Roy Orbison; one of the greatest shows I have ever seen!” Roger Digou declares, “A triumphant performance! We were blown away by your vocals, the fantastic musicianship, and the harmony.” And, Brian Miller of Vivascene.com concludes, “A seamless recreation with great dynamic range, deep feeling and a stellar band. There are hundreds of tribute bands out there, but not many compete with The Lonely”.
