Roy Orbison and Del Shannon had much in common; distinctive sound, exceptional vocal styles, dramatic song structures – plus their intrinsic links to The Traveling Wilburys.

This unique, one-man, multi-media show includes 30+ songs – and spans 5 decades of some of the most dynamic songs of joy and pain ever expressed in popular music – with Mike VanDetta singing all the hits and more – complemented by a biographical narrative – giving a rare insight into Roy and Del’s truth-is-stranger-than-fiction personal lives.

Mike has been a session singer – a published songwriter – and performed with such diverse acts as jazz-pop maestro Georgie Fame and folk-blues legend John Martyn.

So, if you’re a fan of these pop icons from the golden age of the 60’s – treat yourself to a double helping of their never-to-be-forgotten music including: Only The Lonely, In Dreams, It’s Over, Runaway, Little Town Flirt, Hats Off to Larry…..

plus many more!
