No stranger to local fans, popular Styx tribute band Grand Allusion returns Friday night for the Ste. Genevieve Chamber of Commerce Summer Music Series, after performing in the 2021 Summer Music Series.
Grand Allusion has rocked audiences from nightclubs to concert venues.
The band will take the Orris Theatre stage at 8 p.m., Friday night, in the fourth week of this year’s series.
According to its website, “Grand Allusion recreates the music of Styx with exceptional instrumental performances and vibrant harmonies. They remain true to the original recorded music while translating it into an exciting concert experience.”
The band has entertained audiences of over 6,000 people at shows in large arenas, and smaller audiences at intimate theatres.
Grand Allusion features Tim Lokey on lead and backup vocals; Carlos “Dave” Bedoya on guitar and backup vocals; Eugene Holdenried, guitar, lead and backup vocals; Jason Cunningham, bass and backup vocals; Keith Wagner, keyboard and backup vocals; and Dennis Stringfield, drums and lead and backup vocals.
Last week, fans at the Orris got to hear Portrait, a Kansas tribute band.
All shows will begin at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Tickets cost $20 per person.
Tickets may be purchased in person at the Ste. Genevieve Chamber of Commerce office, over the phone, or online using a link on the chamber’s website: stegenchamber.org.
The Herald will again raffle off two pairs of tickets to each event.
