 BACK PORCH CONCERTS

Dear Guests

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of the last ten amazing years as we have been growing and bringing bigger and better shows to The Hanover Civic Theatre. Many entertainment companies have been hit very hard by the pandemic. Many are not financially surviving. Theatre and concert companies are facing the reality that we will be the last to be operational again. I want to take this time to once again thank all of you who have held on to your tickets to help us survive. You truly believe in this company and Arts and Culture in Hanover and we thank you!

 

We are doing all that we can to keep Back Porch Events and live concerts alive and I am determined to visit with you once again at a show in the future. We are in a difficult situation right now and have paused all ticket sales due to the pandemic. Please know that all tickets you are holding are good forever. You can exchange them in the future for any other concert we will be hosting once we are able to produce again. Please hang onto the original ticket as they will be automatically transferred over to the new date. New event dates will be announced as soon as we get updated information from government and local health officials regarding group sizes, infrastructure requirements and travel restrictions. Please follow our Facebook pages, (Back Porch Events & Hanover Civic Theatre) and our website ( www.backpoprchevents.ca) for updates.

 

We have rescheduled a few of the concerts we had to cancel with hopes that 2021 will be a kinder year and we will be able to put this pandemic behind us and return to a more normal life for all of us. We will send out another newsletter as soon as we have more information from the provincial government on when we can begin producing shows again. We look forward to seeing all of you again as soon as we can. Be well and stay safe, we miss you all and hope for a return to live music as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

ONLY THE LONELY- Tribute to Roy Orbison

Roy Orbison was an American singer, songwriter, and musician known for his powerful voice, wide vocal range, impassioned singing style, complex song structures, and dark, emotional ballads. From 1960 to 1966, 22 of his singles reached the Top 40, and he wrote or co-wrote almost all that rose to the Top 10.  He has sold millions of records worldwide and his honors include inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987. Rolling Stone placed him at number 37 on their list of the "Greatest Artists of All Time" and number 13 on their list of the "100 Greatest Singers of All Time'. In 2002, Billboard magazine listed Orbison at number 74 in the Top 600 recording artists.

 

Elton Lammie has made quite a career for himself as a country music singer and tribute artist to Roy Orbison.  As a vocalist, Elton has won dozens of talent competitions in Canada and the USA.  He has extensive Radio and TV credits as a performer.  If that wasn't enough, Elton struck out  as a legit Opera Tenor!  by winning a televised reality show looking for Canada's next Opera Star.  This operatic training has also paved the way for a successful venture as a Roy Orbison impersonator. Orbison had one of the most unique, powerful and cherished voices in recorded music history and Elton is one of very few Roy tribute artists in the world that sings the songs in the original keys.

 

Only the Lonely- a Tribute to Roy Orbison songlist includes.... 

Only the Lonely, Running Scared, Crying, In dreams, Oh Pretty Woman, Blue Bayou, Sweet dream baby, Oobie Doobie, It's Over, Mean Woman Blues, Candyman, You got it, California Blue, Claudette, Uptown,  Leah,  End of the line, Handle me with care and more.......
