Sukup Manufacturing Co. and G.G. George Family proudly present The Righteous Brothers at the North Iowa Community Auditorium on the NIACC campus at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 24th, 2021. This presentation is part of the 2021-2022 Performing Arts and Leadership Series.
Blue-eyed soul pioneers The Righteous Brothers are back! With a string of #1 classics, including the most played song in radio history “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame duo of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield topped the charts in four decades. After Bobby’s death in 2003, Bill Medley continued to perform to sold-out crowds around the world, but fans and friends pleaded with him to keep The Righteous Brothers alive.
Says Medley, “No one could ever take Bobby’s place, but when I caught Bucky Heard’s show, it all came together – I found the right guy to help me recreate the magic.”
The concert experience features all their biggest hits – “Lovin’ Feelin’,” “Soul & Inspiration,” “Unchained Melody,” “Rock and Roll Heaven,” Medley’s Grammy-winning Dirty Dancing theme “The Time of My Life,” and much, much more.
The Bill Medley/Bucky Heard pairing came as something of a happy accident. Medley says it just seemed right. “I’d been friends with Bucky for years, but when I caught his show, he just killed me! The next day it hit me – that’s the guy, someone I could sing hard with, laugh hard with, love and respect – on and off stage. He fits The Righteous Brothers live performance show perfectly.”
Bill Medley is truly one of the iconic figures in American music history. His instantly recognizable baritone voice has anchored some of the biggest recordings of all time. He’s won a Grammy, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and an American Music Award.
The Orange County, CA native began writing songs as a boy and had his breakout as a songwriter and singer when, in 1963, he penned “Little Latin Lupe Lu,” the first regional hit for The Righteous Brothers. Soon, they caught producer Phil Spector’s attention and he signed them to record what would become the most played song in the history of American radio – the Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil classic “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’.” A string of top hits followed until 1968 when Medley and Hatfield agreed to part ways to pursue solo careers. They re-united in 1974 and never stopped performing to packed crowds until Bobby’s passing in 2003.
Bucky Heard is an Alabama native with a reputation as a gutsy rock and roll singer with an incredible vocal range. He’s been hand-selected to share the concert stage with legends like Andy Williams and Glen Campbell and honored as “Male Vocalist of the Year” by entertainment publications. Bucky has rocked his way across America with his 10-piece horn band.
Heard says teaming up with Bill Medley in The Righteous Brothers has been a wonderful gift. “Performing with Bill Medley is like getting your PhD in show business! He is more than a legend; he puts everything into every performance, and really understands how to connect with an audience. He motivates me to be my best and I’m so grateful for it.”
