Billy McGuigan's Pop Rock Orchestra

BILLY MCGUIGAN’S POP ROCK ORCHESTRA
Like many of us out there, the feeling Billy got from watching big rock bands from the 70s was exhilarating and it’s an energy that is re-created with Billy McGuigan's Pop Rock Orchestra. His musical influences left an incredible impact on the type of entertainer Billy was to become. Think of Frank Sinatra at the Sands with the power of the Count Basie Orchestra behind him, the Moody Blues who put symphonic interludes in the middle of a rock song, ELO with an electric horn and string section - rock & roll was transformed! As Billy navigates the audience through decades of classic gems, he does so backed by a rock orchestra that can match his energy in force. The set list is as varied and versatile as Billy himself.
Billy McGuigan has received national attention and critical acclaim for his dynamic portrayal of the legendary Buddy Holly in his show Rave On! The Buddy Holly Experience and has been recognized for having one of the most innovative shows touring the country, Yesterday and Today: The Interactive Beatles Experience. He has sold out theaters all across North America and has broken box office and attendance records in several theaters across the country. Billy’s Yesterday and Today holds the record for the longest running show in the history of the Howard Drew Theatre at the Omaha Community Playhouse. Billy has won countless awards for his work including the Spotlight Award for Best Actor in a Musical, an Omaha Entertainment and Arts Award, he was the recipient of the Midland Business Journals 40 under 40 award, and was awarded the Alumni Award for Excellence in Public Service by the Faculty and Staff at the University of Nebraska.
