Singers John Van Thiel and Danny J and the show band The Legendaires will offer up a tribute to two of music's greatest legends in "Elvis and Orbison: The Voices of Rock."

The show will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 23 in The Grand theater, 401 N. Fourth St.

Both Van Thiel and Danny J are familiar with the The Grand's stage. They have performed several times during the last few years as members of the group "Mark Shurilla and The Greatest Hits." Shurilla died last year, so the two performers decided to create a show of their own.

The performance will take listeners through the careers of Elvis Presley (Van Thiel) and Roy Orbison (Danny J), a time period spanning four decades.

"Fans told us over and over that they wanted to hear more Elvis, more Danny, so we crafted a show to give it to them," Van Thiel said. Danny J spearheaded the effort to organize the group and assembled The Legendaires, an 11-piece show band that includes a full horn section and backup singers.

Tickets are $25 and $35 and are available at The Grand box office at 715-842-0988 or online at www.grandtheater.org.
