the music and story of johnnie ray
This is the show a generation has been waiting for..
THIS IS NOT A CLONE SHOW
(Where one pretends to BE Johnnie Ray or make every move he makes)
is one Music Legend paying homage to another Legend.
Where staging allows, audio-visual is featured with remarkable clips
of eras and stars gone by. A show in itself!!

Review cards are given to the audience which they place in a box after use. They have the option of remaining anonymous or giving their contact details.
From our audiences so far, it seems about 50% had never heard of Johnnie Ray, 20% had maybe heard of him, 25% knew of him and his hits back in the 50's and early 60's and 5% just didn't know whether they did or not.
This makes it even more interesting that the reviews are what the are..

Lonnie has re-invented himself yet again! Loved it all so much, the Johnnie Ray part was so interesting, & so well done, & the slide show at interval was a great touch too.

What a wonderful show! - I never knew of Johnnie Ray however I just love the songs and your singing, thank you for introducing me to them - I brought my father to the show and am so glad I came, the show was terrific - WE were married to your song 'I found a new love' in 1961 and this is the first time we have seen your show. It was unbelievable for us.
