Bee Gees Gold provided some powerful “Night Fever” to an enthusiastic Canyon Lake crowd when they performed a sold-out show on Saturday in the Holiday Bay Room at the lodge.
Sponsored by the Canyon Lake Fine Arts Guild, the tribute artists and their band recreated the sights, sounds and what seemed to be the feeling of attending an actual Bee Gees concert.
Bee Gees Gold, billed as the ultimate salute and tribute to experiencing the Bee Gees live in their prime, played and sang monster disco hits such as “Staying Alive,” “How Deep is Your Love,” “More than a Woman” and “You Should Be Dancing.” They also took a trip down memory lane with oldies from the 60s, such as “I Started a Joke,” “I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You,” “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?” and “Massachusetts.”
Many in the audience were not aware the Bee Gees wrote songs for other artists. Bee Gees Gold played Kenny and Dolly’s “Islands in the Stream,” Yvonne Ellerman’s “If I Can’t Have You,” Barbra Streisand’s “Woman in Love” and Frankie Valli’s “Grease,” all written by the Bee Gees. The tribute trio sported the attire, physical attributes and vocal stylings of the iconic group and crooned that recognizable three-part harmony that sold over 200 million records.
The Fine Arts Guild will sponsor a free summer concert for the community on July 21 at the new amphitheater at Holiday Harbor Park. “Margaritaville by the Lake” will feature a tribute to Jimmy Buffet.
Tickets are on sale now for the Fine Art Guild’s Aug. 25 Chicago tribute concert and the Nov. 3 Rod Stewart concert. Both performances will be held in the Holiday Bay Room at the lodge.
General Admission tickets are $25; VIP tickets are $45. Tickets can be purchased at CanyonLakeGuild.com. General Admission tickets can be purchased at the POA office.
