The next offering in the Baileigh Industrial Marquee Season, “The Highwaymen Live,” is a musical tribute to perhaps the greatest country music super-group in history, who traveled the world, performing country music for millions of fans. Don’t miss this special matinee performance stop on The Highwaymen Live tour, Saturday, Jan. 26 at 3:30 p.m., at the Capitol Civic Centre.
Audiences will watch in amazement as each song, one hit after another, is sung just as if they were seeing the original band perform. This 90-minute country music tribute show is full of hits like “Ring of Fire,” “Mammas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow up to be Cowboys,” and “On the Road Again.”
The Highwaymen are:
Michael Moore as Willie Nelson was born and raised in McKinney, Texas. His passion for Willies’s music came at an early age.
Moore shares, “I can remember hearing his music coming out of my grandmother’s old AM radio.” I knew that there was something unique about Willie Nelson. Nelson’s voice and unusual style of phrasing are hard to match.”
Through many years of study and about a million “Whiskey Rivers” later, Moore’s ability to capture the country music legend’s voice and style are considered by many to be the best in the world. Moore is also an accomplished guitar player and performs all of the guitar parts played by Nelson in his shows. Moore has performed his Willie tribute show throughout the USA as a solo artist and also with several top tribute shows including Cavalcade Of Stars, Mirror Image, Memories Theatre, and Superstars Live in Concert, a BC Entertainment, Inc. production.
August Manley as Waylon Jennings is a Tacoma, Washington native. Being raised on country music in the mid-seventies laid the perfect foundation for what would later become the Nation’s premier Waylon Jennings tribute. Since 2005, Manley has been bringing the finest moments of country music back to Waylon’s vast number of fans, as well as providing thousands of newcomers to Waylon’s music, performed live.
Philip Bauer as Johnny Cash has been thrilling audiences for many years with his dynamic stage presence, vocal quality, and impressive vocal range. Bauer started his musical path in Minneapolis, Minn. where he thrilled audiences with his quality performances and competing in and winning many talent contests. In 1985 Bauer won the Minnesota State Fair talent contest, 1st place from a field of over 800 contestants. His performance got attention and landed him his first contract to perform with a 40-piece orchestra every night of the 1986 State Fair. In the 1990s he performed on TNN’s “Charlie Daniels Talent Roundup,” was the opening act for Leann Rimes, and entertained thousands in Branson Mo. His Tribute to Johnny Cash has taken him all across the U.S. Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, and Australia. Bauer starred in a segment of AXS TV’s “World’s Greatest Tribute Bands.”
