From the Morrisburg newspaper:
Leisa Way and the Wayward Wind Band’s brand new tribute to the classic music of Rock’n Roll packed Upper Canada Playhouse for the show’s entire run. Judging by the sell-out crowds singing and literally dancing in the aisles, it was easy to see why.
From Buddy Holly to The Who, from Carly Simon to Grace Slick, this exuberant premiere production took audiences on a “magical, mystical”, musical journey through the greats, the artists who gave us some of the finest and most memorable music of the 20th (and 21st!) centuries.
With a voice that ranges several octaves, and the ability to deliver on numbers as musically diverse as “Proud Mary”, “You’re So Vain” and “Natural Woman”, Leisa Way continues to be a singing dynamo. Her passion for music is contagious. Her energy on stage is boundless: the audience took her to heart from the moment she invited them to “The Hop.”
Way’s trademark costumes and wigs (donned at record speed over the course of the entire concert), gave a sense of each of the decades the show spanned. She took us through some 40 years of music and some 40 years of rock fashion: Poodle Skirts and page boys gave way to glitter, fringe, head bands, minis and go-go boots. (It was definitely a trip down memory’s fashion lane!)
