The Canyon Lake Fine Arts Guild will present the music of super-group Chicago on Aug. 25 and the spirited Rod Stewart Nov. 3 in the Holiday Bay Room at the lodge. Tickets are on sale now at CanyonLakeGuild.com or the POA Office (general admission only).
Tribute artist Kenny Cetera’s Chicago Experience will bring the music of Chicago, one of the longest-running and most successful rock groups of all time, sometimes known as “the rock and roll band with a horn section.” Originally formed in 1967 as Chicago Transit Authority, Chicago has had a string of chart-busting hits throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s. Kenny Cetera’s Chicago Experience will play hits such as “Does Anybody Know What Time It Is,” “If You Leave Me Now,” “Feeling Stronger Every Day,” “Saturday in the Park,” and “Hard Habit to Break.”
Kenny has personally toured with Chicago as a vocalist and performed on Chicago 17, Chicago’s best selling album. His brother, Peter Cetera, was the most notable lead singer of the brass-rock group and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Kenny Cetera’s Chicago Experience is billed to be a most engaging musical event as Kenny effortlessly drives the lead vocals above the “harmonically dissonant” horn section.
Gregory Wolfe has been performing as Rod Stewart since 1984. He has taken his act world wide, from Bangkok to Berlin to Boston. During that time, he has gained substantial notoriety amongst his peers for his exciting performances. Bearing a striking resemblance to the rock legend, Wolfe needs no makeup, “I can just roll out of bed and jump on stage.” From “Maggie May,” “Hot Legs,” and “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy” and “Forever Young,” Wolfe says the best part about performing, is delivering the on-stage energy of the iconic superstar.
With that characteristic raspy singing voice, Wolfe has tried to deliver the spirit of Sir Roderick Stewart, one of the best selling music artists of all time. Having sold over 100 million records, Stewart came to prominence in the late 60s with a soft rock quality that earned him an induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. “Our Canyon Lake audience tells us they appreciate songs they know, love and can sing along to; they just want to have fun,” said Fine Arts Guild President Ron Martel.
Earlier this year, The Fine Arts Guild presented tribute artists for Billy Joel and the Bee Gees, both events were wildly popular, filling the lodge with an enthusiastic audience. Purchasing tickets for the upcoming two concerts is highly recommended. “VIP Reserved seats for both events are already over 80 percent sold, but there plenty of $25 General Admission tickets available,” said Fine Arts Guild Director Orlando Lopez,
The Fine Arts Guild’s 2018 season also includes a Jimmy Buffet tribute on July 21. “Margaritaville by the Lake” will be a free concert for the community held at the new Holiday Harbor Park amphitheater. The Fine Arts Guild contributed $25,000 toward the new amenity and is looking forward to hosting concerts there. The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is scheduled for Friday, June 22. The Fine Arts Guild plans to provide live rock music after the ceremony.
