Local Spotlight: "Roy Orbison Returns"

Posted: Updated:

If you're a fan of 50's and 60's popular music, you'll know the hits "Pretty Woman," "Only the Lonely," "Crying," and a whole lot more.

This weekend, "Roy Orbison Returns" at the Clark Center in Arroyo Grande.
     
While Orbison passed away years ago, you'd be excused for confusing musician and singer Wiley Ray for the rock 'n roll hall of famer.
     
The show is a fully-scripted, musical theatre, re-creation of Orbison's 1980's concert years, with costumes, lighting, set lists, and arrangements all accurately represented.

"I call it Rockabilly opera," said Ray. "It's music written for the lead vocal and the lead guitar. We do 22, 23 of his songs and we do them live. So, if you want to hear Roy's music live, you gotta come to our show."

"Roy Orbison Returns" plays Friday night, with special guest lead guitarist Louie Ortega, at 8:00 p.m. at the Clark Center. Click here for tickets and more information.
