After all these years!

So what’s your favorite Bee Gees song? Come on, you know you have one. The album Stayin’ Alive alone sold over 30 million copies. Songs from “I Started A Joke” to “Nights On Broadway” are pop music legends.

We all know the songs, we all know the words and we all see John Travolta in our heads when “Stayin’ Alive” comes on the radio. The Bee Gees are legend, but sadly not one we can experience live and in person. Or can we?

Night Fever-The Bee Gees Tribute, is coming to Odell Williamson Auditorium on the campus of Brunswick Community College for one night only, Thursday January 21, 2016 at 7:30 pm.

Night Fever-The Bee Gees Tribute is the largest production of the Bee Gees in the world. This all Canadian cast has been touring for the past ten years, recreating the look and sound of the Bee Gees. Featuring the vocals of Matthew Whale (who handles the high parts and also plays Benny in a musical production of Abbamania) as Maurice Gibb, Joe Varga (whose first concert was a Bee Gees show at 10 years old) as Robin Gibb and John Ralphs (who is in talks to portray Barry Gibb in an upcoming Bee Gees bio-pic) as Barry Gibb, the Canadian tribute band strives to create an eerie sense of seeing the brothers Gibb alive in concert, an event impossible to see today.

Capturing a full history of the Bee Gees, “Night Fever” includes material from the 1967 breakout album, “Bee Gees First,” including “To Love Somebody,” “Holiday,” “Massachusetts,” and continuing with the earlier album, “Words,” “I Got To Get A Message to You,” and “I Started A Joke.” They move on to selections from the later era’s with songs like “Nights On Broadway,” “You Should Be Dancing,” “Stayin’ Alive,” “Night Fever,” “How Deep Is Your Love” and include era #3 from their platinum album, “Spirits Having Flown,” with “Tragedy,” “Love You Inside Out,” and “Too Much Heaven.”

Odell Williamson Auditorium Executive Director Mike Sapp says, “I believe it will be a great show. These guys are out of Canada and we have had great success with tribute groups.”

Tickets are $29 for adults, $27 for seniors or students with ID, and $10 for children 12 and under and are available now at the Odell Williamson box office during regular business hours or online at www.bccowa.com.

Come on out and see how the Bee Gees are Stayin’ Alive after all these years!
