Bernie Jessome as Roy Orbison
May 6, 8:00 PM, Casino Regina Show Lounge
Bernie Jessome began his musical career singing with The Esquires and as his career took off he found himself opening for his idol Roy Orbison and groups like The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones. In 1991 he formed a Roy Orbison Tribute production called Shades of Yesterday. He then connected with the huge Legends of Rock and Roll organization and toured Canada cast in the role of Roy Orbison. Bernie has performed throughout the United States and spent more than a year with the U.S. based American Superstars. His spellbinding performances as Roy Orbison throughout England during the spring of 1995 were the talk of the theatre circuit.
Touring the continent as his idol in The Roy Orbison Story, Bernie Jessome is having the time of his life. The time and thought that went into the production of the show are remarkable. The extremely high caliber of the participants, the involvement of Sam Orbison and the warm and welcome reception from Roy Orbison fans throughout North America make this presentation a truly wonderful experience.
Jessome comments, "Orbison was, in the eyes of Elvis Presley and many other great musicians, the best singer in the world. The tragedies of losing his wife in a motorcycle accident in 1966 and two years later losing two of his three sons to a house fire, didn't stop this unique person from continuing his musical work. He is a true legend and it is a privilege to sing in the memory of the irreplaceable Roy Orbison."
