Four lookalike, soundalike legends staged a non-stop tribute to the rock 'n' roll years for Rockin' On Heaven's Door, part of Sunny Hunny's summer season.
The first names of rock – Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Eddie Cochrane and Buddy Holly – starred in a thoroughly entertaining show which delighted rockers of all ages.
Richard Atkins as Elvis, Johnny Curtiss as Roy Orbison, Marc Robinson as Buddy Holly and Rebel Dean as Eddie Cochran adopted the persona of their idols with their gyrating hips, slickly coiffured hair and snug costumes, which must have caused a few palpitations in the front row.
Eddie Cochran set the mood, with Buddy Holly “raving on” to Roy Orbison's familiar but doleful numbers and then Elvis, complete with curled lip and tight. white suit, dominating the second half.
Each was visually convincing, adopting an image which persuaded the audience that here was the next best thing to their heroes and by the time the foursome teamed up for the finale the audience was on its feet for classics such as Jailhouse Rock and Johnny Be Good.
