CAREER
Brian has been traveling and singing the beautiful and challenging songs of Roy Orbison fulltime since 1995. His tribute artist career began calmly enough, purely as a hobby during his years of being a writer and radio show host in New England - that announcer with the smooth "voice of authority" you heard in everything from familiar commercials to interactive exhibits at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.

A fan videoed Brian singing at a club one night, and without his knowledge, sent the tape off to a Las Vegas producer. Soon after, a very surprised Brian received a telephone call while on the air. The caller was John Stuart, the originator of the world famous impersonator show "Legends in Concert", and Brian's career changed overnight to one of bringing Roy's music to the stage in a tribute to the Big "O" that is amazingly natural.

Clients and fans appreciate Brian's consistant talent as much today as when he changed from radio personality to onstage star almost twenty years ago. Since his first gig at the Tropicana in Atlantic City, he has enjoyed repeat appearances in casinos throughout the US; extended runs in Nashville, Myrtle Beach, Branson, and resorts in Mexico. Add on appearances up and down the Eastern seaboard, tours with Rock & Roll shows on the West coast and across the Sunbelt states, and even months at sea entertaining on cruise ships.

Brian has also developed a special show dedicated entirely to Orbison that is a favorite in dinner theaters - two full hours of songs from all of Roy's eras - the rockabilly 50's, his heyday in the 60's, to the 80's supergroup The Traveling Wilburys.

MORE ABOUT
"ELVIS & ROY"
The show features medleys and adaptations specifically created to capture the essence of a concert with these two beloved superstars which, sadly, never happened in the "real" world.

Brian has performed for members of Roy Orbison's band and for some of Roy's most loyal fans
from across the world at their annual gatherings, giving him the chance to meet
some of Roy's friends and family, his co-writers, and music industry associates.


The folks who know, agree - Brian is simply THE BEST...

"I can only say after working with Roy and being in the business as long as I have, and always looking for that different, unique voice...as far as being a producer that when I heard your voice, I heard that very same uniqueness that Roy had...and now that is gone, except for what he left on tapes, CDs and videos. You have that unique sound, and the feel, and the vibrato that he was so very famous for...so carry on, and be yourself, and let Roy's voice live through you. If I were to put you against the rest I have heard, they're not even in the running. If I can help in any possible way, please, let me know...I will endorse that great voice of yours to the max!"
Bucky Barrett, Roy's lead guitar player, in Nashville

"I had to listen to this more than once. Then I went to my files and spent a few hours looking over my pictures and charts and memories of my time with Roy. I hadn't looked at them in years. Thank you for helping to bring back that part of my life"
Jim Johnson, Roy's bass player, after receiving his copy of Brian's CD "Orbisonia"

"This is so cool!...It's like being back in the 80s!"
"Turbo" Kirby, Roy's keyboard player, after "The Lost Concert " show in Nashville

"You know that Orbison song, "You Got It"?...well, Brother Brian, you got it!
Gordon Stoker, tenor in the legendary vocal group "The Jordanaires"


BRIAN'S MISSION STATEMENT:

"I can't pretend to speak for all who do shows in tribute to Roy, but we professionals as a general rule are quick to agree that there is only one Roy Orbison.

I'm certainly never going to say I could replace the man, nor would I want to. My job is to perform his songs, adopt his look, respect his legacy and give his fans a focal point to honor the man and their memories of him."
