Brian’s portrayal of Roy Orbison is complete even to the remarkable vocal range and natural ease with which Roy delivered his beautiful songs. That ability has won Brian respect from insiders who knew the star personally and professionally, and acclaim from fans of the Big “O”.
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Brian’s singing career began purely as a hobby while he was a radio personality and talk show host in New England. He had no idea that a few favorite Orbison songs and one phone call were going to change his life.
Without his knowledge, a friend videotaped Brian singing and sent the tape off to a Las Vegas show producer. A very surprised Brian received the resultant telephone call while on the air one morning – from the “World’s famous, Legends in Concert”- and Brian promptly hung up on them thinking the call was just a prank. Thankfully, they were persistent, and Brian’s conversion from radio star to an onstage one showcasing Roy Orbison’s music to venues all over the map was quickly underway.
Since his first appearance in 1995, Brian has performed with “Legends in Concert” many times, bringing his talent and Roy’s beloved songs to Atlantic City, Branson, Myrtle Beach, as well as on cruise lines, in touring revue shows, at casinos and in theaters across the US and Canada.
