The ELO Experience Recreates the Music of Electric Light Orchestra
The ELO Experience is a tribute band devoted to recreating the sounds and live performances of the Electric Light Orchestra. The band is made up of wonderfully talented musicians that wanted to preserve the legacy of the Electric Light Orchestra. In tribute to the original group, the ELO Experience decided to come together to cover the ELO's songs and to replicate its fantastic live shows from the 1970s and 1980s. Now, 40 years later, the music that the original band wrote is being performed by these expert musicians for fans to enjoy!
The Elo Experience has a busy schedule for this year and next. They will be performing in venues across the UK, singing the well-known hits of the Electric Light Orchestra. Fans can catch them performing at the Buxton Opera House in Buxton, the Tivoli Theatre in Wimborne, The Swan Theatre in Worcester and the Palace Theatre in Manchester, among other concert dates.
The ELO Experience was formed in order to pay tribute to the Electric Light Orchestra, a British Rock group that was popular in the 1970s and 1980s. They originally set out to create rock songs that had elements of classical music in them, and the ELO Experience does a great job of replicating that sound completely. The band members come from diverse backgrounds - one of them used to play on cruise ships, and others come from backgrounds in musical theatre and professional touring bands.
The band is composed of eight talented musicians who each bring something special to the stage. Andy Louis is the lead singer and has a voice just like Jeff Lynne, the original lead of ELO. Steve Hemsley plays keyboards, and does special effects and vocals as well. Pete Smith is on bass guitar and backup vocals and Jan Christiansen is on lead guitar. Tony Lawson is on drums and percussion and both Viv Blackledge and Clare Little play cello. Liz Stacey is the group's violinist.
The Elo Experience got its start when Electric Light Orchestra fan Andy Louis decided that he wanted to give other fans of the group a chance to hear the band's music performed live on stage. He contacted a few musicians he knew and they formed the ELO Experience. They have quickly become one of the most popular tribute bands in all of Europe. They placed number one at the National Tribute Awards 2013 in the United Kingdom and continue to tour and sell out shows across the continent.
Because the Elo Experience is a tribute band, they focus on the hit albums of Electric Light Orchestra. These include the self-titled debut album, ELO 2, On the Third Day, Face the Music, Xanadu and Secret Messages. They play blockbuster ELO hits like Mr. Blue Sky, Don't Bring Me Down, Sweet Talking Woman, Living Thing and many more in their live shows.
The ELO Experience works hard in their live shows to create the same vibe that Electric Light Orchestra did back in the 1970s and 1980s. Fans with ELO Experience tickets will feel transported to a different era when listening to their performances. They have eight musicians onstage at all times and the various instruments and classical overtones create a full, lush sound.
