Killer Queen

October 20, 2021, 7:00 pm

KXLG and Reliabank Present Killer Queen. Killer Queen are the only tribute to have sold out the same arenas as Queen in their heyday.

Lead singer Patrick Myers said “It's been an amazing journey. That first show back in June 1993 changed my life. We thought our band would last maybe a summer at the most but it's a very addictive thing performing these songs! The concerts grew and grew and we've ended up playing and selling out the same arenas that Queen played at their peak. It's been quite a surreal ride. Becoming regular performers Red Rocks Arena in America is another highlight . The Beatles, U2, Springsteen, Dylan all played on that stage. It's really got it's own kind of magic going on there”

2019 sees the band's fourth and biggest 10 week US tour as well headlining across Europe, Scandinavia and Russia.

When Killer Queen formed back in June 1993 their first ever show was at London University,following in the footsteps of the real Queen who had played their first shows there 21 years earlier.

By 1995 Killer Queen's UK popularity had grown to such an extent they secured a residency in London's Strand Theatre attracting nationwide BBC coverage - the first tribute to have a show in the West End.

The band's reputation continued to grow both in the UK and abroad. In 1999 they returned from a tour of and Europe and Russia for an awards ceremony in Leicester Square, hosted by Suggs from Madness. He announced they had won the award for “Worldwide Best Tribute Band”.

The band also scored a number one hit when they they were asked to recreate Queen's harmionies for “The Real Life” with Fatboy Slim in 2001.

Killer Queen toured into their second decade, the audiences grew. In 2005 they played Ahoy Stadium, where the reformed Queen would be performing only a few months later.

The next year Killer Queen joined forces with Bjorn Again and The Bootleg Beatles for a Waverley Stadium show in Edinburgh. It was this performance that led to the band being selected to represent Queen in a re-staged tribute LiveAid concert held by Sir Bob Geldof. They performed with him at his arena charity concert to raise funds for the homeless.

2009 saw a triumphant return to a sold out Ahoy stadium with their acclaimed “Queen Spectacular” production and another award, this time from Sweden's Vasteras concert hall “Best Concert of The Year 2009”.

2013 saw them performing in another one of Queen's former venues, this time the Brighton Centre to celebrate their 20th Anniversary.

In 2016 Killer Queen set their sights on America including the awe inspiring Red Rocks Arena in Colorado – one of the countries most prestigious venues. The Beatles, Springsteen, U2 have all played there and the band are delighted it's become a regular fixture on Killer Queen's tour sheet.

Nashville Celts

March 13, 2021, 7:00 pm

That hybrid sound and historical evolutionary process from the roots of Celtic-American immigrants to today’s most popular music

The Nashville Celts are led by musician/songwriter/producer Ric Blair. Ric Blair, is also the founder of their two popular concept shows, Roots of Great American Music and Christmas with The Celts.

In 2010, Blair produced the national PBS show Christmas with The Celts which was filmed in front of a sold out audience at the original Grand Ole Opry, (voted top venue by Pollstar) the world famous Ryman Auditorium. The show aired on 222 PBS channels across the U.S., Canada and on the BBC in Ireland for three years. This successful TV show was the initial spark, which created a huge demand for the group, bringing them into major venues.

Today, The Nashville Celts pack concert halls around the world including The Grand Ole Opry, The Ryman Auditorium, The Lincoln Center, and many other Performing Arts Centers, Theaters and large Casinos. The Nashville Celts have shared the stage with a diverse range of specials guests and artists including Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh of Altan, Vince Gill, Irish singer Cathy Jordan of Dervish, Ricky Skaggs, Riverdance piper Ivan Goff from Dublin, Patty Loveless, Braveheart/Titanic piper Eric Rigler, and Tim O’Brien just to name a few.

The Nashville Celts lineup features founder Ric Blair on vocals, guitars, bodhran, and piano, Laura McGhee from Dundee, Scotland on vocals and fiddle plus an ensemble of world class musicians playing uilleann pipes, Irish whistles, banjo, mandolin, bass, drums and always crowd pleasing Irish step dancers.

The music of The Nashville Celts is uniquely original. When asked about their musicial style Blair says, "I’m proud of my Irish/Scottish roots, but I am equally proud of my American music roots. So, our music has become a product of blending the two." Blair credits the group’s popularity to their melding of modern American hit songs and sounds with organic Celtic instruments as well as the success of their PBS-TV specials.

That hybrid sound and historical evolutionary process from the roots of Celtic-American immigrants to today’s most popular music is also fully depicted in the band’s new production entitled Roots of Great American Music. This high energy production demonstrates how Irish music influenced the development of American bluegrass, country, and pop music.

Early in his career, Ric Blair was a promising jazz major at the University of Cincinnati’s prestigious College Conservatory of Music. A chance encounter changed the entire course of his life. “A buddy of mine said “Hey there’s this Irish group playing tonight,’ American-born and Nashville based Blair remembers. It took a little prodding, but he agreed to give the concert a shot. “I opened the doors, and people were literally dancing on the tables,”says Blair. “The music was so happy. As soon as I heard the pipes and Irish whistle, something in my blood hit me and said ‘this is what I want to do’.” Today, Blair reigns as one of the country’s most respected purveyors and historians of Celtic music.

In 2015, The Celts appeared on PBS TV show Music City Roots. In March of 2016 performed at The Bluegrass Underground and will soon host another PBS special called Roots of Great American Music which will feature some of the world's most famous Country music, Irish music, and pop stars as special guests. The Nashville Celts are booked by MPI Talent Agency.
