Sting Ray Anthony and special guest entertainers Shake, Rattle and Roll, the all-female show group, will perform at the Liberty Opry on Sunday, March 10, 3 p.m.
Ray Anthony’s arsenal of talent extends beyond looks and voice. As an accomplished musician-songwriter, his knowledge in the high-tech, fast-paced music industry is unlimited. A gifted guitarist, Ray also plays bass, piano and drums.
“My best musical work is from the ’50s and ’60s, but I listen to everything,” he said.
Before joining the award-winning live tribute show Legends in Concert, Ray performed his high energy tribute to Ritchie Valens in shows across Canada, the US, and Mexico and received personal accolades from Valens’ original producer-manager, Bob Keane, of Del-Fi Records. Bob said he is very impressed with Ray’s portrayal of his star and pleased Ritchie’s memory is being kept alive in such a professional manner.
“It’s amazing what happens to the audience when I sing Ritchie Valens’ songs. They get very excited and want to dance out of their seats to join in. I love that part,” he said. “I want the audience who did not know or recognize Ritchie to relive that time through my work.”
Shake Rattle & Roll, a nationally recognized 50′s & 60′s tribute show group, will make you stop, drop and roll with laughter as they take you back to a time of innocence with their beautiful harmony, choreographed moves, comedy and hula-hooping skills.
Shake Rattle & Roll has entertained with The Coasters, Jimmy Clanton, The Country Comedy Tour, Las Vegas artist Sting Ray Anthony (Richie Valens), Kenny James (Buddy Holly), Travis Powell (#1 Elvis Tribute Artist in the world) and for numerous Civic Organizations, churches, commercial businesses and sing back up for other artists.
The show is $30 per ticket. For reservations, call 936-336-5830. The Liberty Opry is located at 1816 Sam Houston Ave., Liberty.
