MARION — The Guess Who, rock music’s top hit-makers of 1960s and 70s, are set to perform a live concert at the Marion Palace Theatre on Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:30 p.m.
Initially gaining recognition in Canada in the 1960s, The Guess Who found international super-stardom through the mid-1970s. Their impressive collection of hit singles includes “These Eyes,” “Clap For the Wolfman,” “Hand Me Down World,” “No Time,” “Star Baby,” “Share the Land,” “No Sugar Tonight,” “Laughing,” “Undun,” and their #1 rock anthem “American Woman.”
The Guess Who founding member and drummer Garry Peterson will take the Palace stage with an impressive group of professional recording and performing artists including dynamic lead singer and guitarist Derek Sharp; bassist Rudy Sarzo (former band member with Ozzy Osbourne, Quiet Riot, Whitesnake, Blue Oyster Cult, DIO, and Queensryche); Guitarist/Harmonica Will Evankovich (singer/songwriter with Green Day, Styx, Night Ranger, Don Felder, Dwight Yoakam, and Ted Nugent); and the talented keyboard-saxophone-flute playing-vocalist Leonard Shaw.
“You’re going to see an excellent version of the songs and hear exactly how they should sound or be played,” verifies Garry Peterson. “We’re coming at a new generation of fans who are seeing how the band can execute with enthusiasm. And we’re also making sure the respect level remains at an all-time high for how the music was initially recorded and remains at an all-time high for the fans who have been with the band from the beginning.”
