“One Magic Night” – the ultimate Orbison and Elvis – is coming to Wodonga Bowls Club on Saturday 18 March.
Eddie Daniels is without doubt one of the finest tribute artists in Australia today.
Critics have hailed him a “Master Showman” and the “King of Cabaret”.
His amazing stage presence captures his audience as soon as he walks on stage.
With an incredible vocal range of over three octaves and the ability to re-create the vocal sounds of the greatest singers from the ’60s, Eddie Daniels is unique!
One Magic Night is one of the finest tribute shows available today, featuring Orbison’s hits from “Oobi Doobi” to “Mystery Girl” and Elvis from “In the Ghetto” to “American Trilogy”.
Eddie is able to move his audience through the music of Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley, giving them that unmistakable “goosebump and shiver down the spine feeling” that you get from experiencing something very, very special.
His career in the entertainment business has spanned decades and includes national and international touring, acting roles in Australia’s most loved commercials and sitcoms and a very successful recording career with 10 top-selling CDs.
You can’t fake experience, it’s something you only gain by “doing it”.
“Eddie Daniels is a vocal impressionist and is very good at it. His greatest attribute is his natural stage presence and easy communication with the audience. His professionalism feels as though he was born on stage.”
(Quote from Encore magazine, Sydney).
“I close my eyes, then I drift away, into the magic night I softly say. A silent prayer, like dreamers do, then I fall asleep to dream my dreams of you.” – Roy Orbison
A year before Beatlemania overtook the United States in 1964, The Beatles invited Orbison to open the shows for them on their English tour.
On his first night, Orbison performed 14 encore songs before the Beatles even made it on stage.
Roy Orbison, who didn’t have the Beatles’ looks, Sinatra’s swagger or Elvis Presley’s pelvis, was perhaps the most unlikely sex symbol of the 1960s.
He dressed like an insurance salesman and was famously lifeless during his performances. “He never even twitched,“ recalled George Harrison, who was simultaneously awestruck and confounded as were many by Orbison’s stage presence.
“He was like marble.”
