Bill Medley was half of the unmistakable singing duo, The Righteous Brothers, whose songs have been embraced by legions of fans.
Medley honors that four decade collaboration, and offers a variety of his own songs in a performance at The Club inside The Cannery Casino & Hotel.
Bill Medley will appear April 16th at 8:30 p.m. Reserved seats are $29.95, plus tax and fees and are available on our website at www.cannerycasino.com. You can also buy tickets at the Cannery box office at (702) 507-5757.
Medley along with Bobby Hatfield are part of American music history and responsible for the hits that defined a generation beginning in the 1960’s. Their hits include: “Unchained Melody”, “Just Once in My Life”, “(You’re My) Soul and Inspiration” and “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin” which has the distinction of being the most played song on American radio.
Medley, who joined in a duet with Jennifer Warnes in 1987, earned an Oscar, Golden Globe, and a Grammy for the song “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” featured on the Dirty Dancing movie soundtrack which sold 14 million copies. In 1990, The Righteous Brothers’ classic version of “Unchained Melody” in the film Ghost, helped send the song back up the charts 30 years after its original release.
Medley and Hatfield, as The Righteous Brothers, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. Sadly, the induction came just a few months before Hatfield’s unexpected death just prior to a performance.
Medley honors the partnership and friendship of Hatfield by continuing to tour and share the duo’s songs, as well as Medley’s own hits and favorites with fans young and old.
