Stevie Ray Vaughan Experience
After recording 5 more studio albums and 6 live compilations, Stevie Ray Vaughan went on to win 6 Grammy awards after being nominated 12 times and selling out countless shows the world over. Though he died more than two decades ago, the guitar legend and his influence can be seen and heard everywhere as it continues to grow.
Few of Stevie’s acolytes likely have the same dedication as Dave Ryan, who has spent the last decade getting the details just right as the front man of the Toronto-based band, The Stevie Ray Vaughan Experience. In addition to Dave’s attention to Stevie’s guitar work, vocal stylings, and guitar tone, there are many other visual elements of the show including hats / costumes, replica guitars/amps, and yes, he even has the same blue peacock tattooed on the center of his chest!
The music is high energy and very danceable. All of SRV’s major hits have been carefully selected to keep everyone’s attention from start to finish. Toes will be tapping and feet will be dancing!
A full night of entertainment from The Stevie Ray Vaughan Experience includes:
Pride & Joy / Cold Shot / Voo Doo Chile / Little Wing / Crossfire / Tightrope / Couldn’t Stand The Weather / House Is Rocking / Empty Arms and many more including Stevie’s rendition of Stevie Wonder’s Superstition, rockin’ Buddy Guy tunes, and Jimi Hendrix monster hits such as Manic Depression and Purple Haze. Finally, a few gems from ZZ Top whom also had an impact on Stevie’s career.
Q107’s John Garbutt sums up The Stevie Ray Vaughan Experienceas accurately as the show captures SRV’s essence… “Musically and visually the real deal…a must see performance!”
