If it’s Rock’n’Roll you want, they don’t come much better than Ricky Aron and his Rock ‘n’ Roll Band.
Performing all the hits from the golden years of the 1950’s/60’s, in the style of 80’s Rock’n’Roller Shakin’ Stevens,
Ricky enthusiasticly mixes all his influences into one , Elvis Presley, Eddie Cochran, Jerry Lee Lewis to name but a few, creating a truly great show full of energy and good ole’ Rock’n’Roll music.
The Passionettes have performed in many venues and theatres across the country both as an act in their own right and as backing singers to many accomplished artistes and musicians, including Suzi Quatro and Elvis Presley’s very own guitar maestro and legend, James Burton. They have been backing Colin Paul and the Persuaders as well as many other Elvis Tribute artiste for many years and have fast established themselves as the best in the business.
Their philosophy Dionne says is, “we love people and we love to entertain! What is the point of going on stage if you are not going to connect with your audience? We work hard on stage to draw the audience into our show…it would be easy to just stand on stage sing a few standard songs and throw in a couple of token dance moves but we wouldn’t enjoy that. We don’t feel the term ‘duo’ really describes what we do … .ours is a mini show. We put our heart and soul into each performance and tackle songs that we think other female artistes are not covering”.
The girls do have a terrific on stage chemistry and presence, which Louise puts down to two things, “off stage, we are great friends, and I think this spills over into our stage act (could this be why people are always asking us are we sisters?!). But as well, we do have the advantage of having been theatre trained and I think this gives us a professional edge”.
