The Canyon Lake Fine Arts Guild will present the music of the Bee Gees in concert on Saturday, May 19, at 7 p.m. in the Holiday Bay Room at the lodge. Tribute artists Bee Gees Gold and their electrifying band have played all over the world, recreating the sights, sounds and feeling of attending an actual Bee Gees concert, when the group was in its prime.
Bee Gees Gold capture the spirit of the original group and its members even resemble Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb. The Canyon Lake audience will be treated to that recognizable three-part harmony that allowed the group to become a fan favorite worldwide and sell millions of records during their career.
The Bee Gees (Brothers Gibb) were originally formed in 1958 but enjoyed two distinct periods of recording and concert touring success. Writing most of their own songs, their initial hits were in the mid-60s to the early 70s with Robin’s clear vibrato in lead vocals with songs such as “I Started a Joke,” “Massachusetts,” “Words” and “I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You.”
They later reinvented themselves with Barry’s distinct R&B falsetto. That voice became their signature sound and a hallmark of the disco era of the late 70s and early 80s, scoring with such blockbuster hits as “Stayin’ Alive,” “Night Fever,” “How Deep is your Love” and “Jive Talkin’.”
Bee Gees Gold is billed as the ultimate salute and tribute to the experience of seeing the Bee Gees in their prime, live once again. With the detailed vocal stylings of John Acosta (Barry), Daryl Borges (Robin) and Jeff Celengtano (Maurice) as the Brothers Gibb, there is a sensation that made a fan at the recent Atlantic City concert blurt out, “Wow, I just saw and heard the legendary Bee Gees.”
This is the Fine Arts Guild’s second concert of the season. After a full house for the Billy Joel Tribute concert last month, the Bee Gees tribute concert has already sold 80 percent of its $45 VIP seats. According to Fine Arts Guild Director Orlando Lopez, “Many good seats, including $25 General Admission tickets remain.” Tickets to all Guild events are available at canyonlakeguild.com or 800-838-3006. The POA office sells General Admission tickets only.
The Fine Arts Guild’s remaining 2018 season concerts include Margaritaville at the Lake, a tribute to Jimmy Buffet, on July 21 at the new Holiday Harbor Park amphitheater. As previously reported, the POA accepted the Fine Art’s Guild’s proposal to build a new amphitheater at Holiday Harbor Park with a donation of $25,000 to help build the new facility.
Kenny Cetera’s Chicago experience will perform on Aug. 25 at the lodge. The Rod Stewart tribute concert, featuring Gregory Wolfe, is set for Nov. 3. All tickets are on sale now.
The Fine Arts Guild invites the community to stop by its booth at the upcoming Club Rush event this Sunday, Apr. 22, from 2 to 6 p.m. at Holiday Harbor where they’ll be passing out free gifts and playing video clips of prior Fine Arts Guild concerts.
