"The Resurrection of Stevie Ray Vaughn" show starring Billy Evanochko will be performing at the Akron Civic Theatre Jan. 21, 2017 at 7:00 p.m.
Like so many of us, Billy Evanochko grew up listening to Stevie Ray Vaughan, but there is one big difference, Evanochko learned to play SRV's music just like Stevie played it.
When Evanochko picks up a Strat and plugs in, something otherworldly happens and we are transported back in time to a period when SRV ruled the airwaves with the unbelievable guitar licks that propelled Texas Blues/Rock to the top of the world.
Championed by Eric Clapton and driving David Bowie to the top of the charts, Stevie Ray Vaughan is brought back to us by Billy Evanochko's blazing guitar, and backed by a group of musicians who can light up a theatre like it was an intimate club.
Special guest, Sonny Moorman portrays Lonnie Mack (Stevie Ray's favorite guitarist) in this show, so be ready for some guitar fireworks.
Tickets are available at the Akron Civic Theatre Box Office 330-253-2488 or online at www.akroncivic.com, or TicketMaster (1-800-745-3000). Tickets are on sale now.
