The Dekker Centre and Rockland Entertainment want to take you on a magical trip down memory lane by presenting Four By Four, a Vegas-style review featuring hits such as Yesterday, Stayin’ Alive, Surfin’ USA and many more on Wednesday, April 11 at 8 p.m.
“We are certainly proud to be bringing another Vegas style show like Four By Four to the Dekker Centre,” general manager Moe McGinty said. “ This showcase features a bit of everything from good old rock and roll, disco and even sounds from Motown.”
The group consists of Ryan Coddle, Josh Woodie, James Bullard and Douglas “Katch” Grey who told battlefordsNOW the audience is in for a real treat.
“We take you on a journey with this show with lots of great music,” Grey said. “We perform many classic songs and also a few that you may have forgotten about but say 'Oh I love that song' when we sing it.”
Grey said that the music the group performs brings back fond memories for him with memories of his father listening to the oldies stations when he was growing up.
“Looking back I remember asking my father to turn that stuff off,” he said with a laugh. “But I am glad he didn’t because I have a better appreciation of the music and artists who performed them.”
In total, the two-hour show will feature 50 legendary songs with ballads, medleys and songs that will make you want to get up and dance Grey added.
“The first set we perform hits of the Beatles and the Bee Gees then we finish the show with our tribute to the Beach Boys and Motown hits,” he added. “It’s a great selection of songs I know everyone will enjoy.”
Grey also added Four By Four do not try to “imitate” the groups they pay tribute to which takes a lot of pressure off the group.
“There is no way that anyone will sound exactly like the Beatles or the Bee Gees,” he said. “However we do perform the songs and the arrangements and the harmonies exactly like they were when they were recorded originally so in that way we do pay tribute to the songs and people seem to appreciate it.”
Tickets for Four By Four are available at the Dekker Centre Box office or online at www.dekkercentre.com.
