The Yadkin Arts Council will feature Billy McGuigan and his band at the Willingham Theater for the second time since 2014 to present unique variety show, ROCK Legends, on Sept. 22 at 7:30 p.m.

This show’s musical choices take audiences on a journey from the ‘50s rock and roll of Elvis, Buddy, and Patsy Cline, to the psychedelic ’60s of The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, and Stevie Wonder. They’ll hit the groove of the ’70s with Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, and the piano men, Billy and Elton, and even dabble in the music of the ’80s with the likes of Tom Petty, U2, and more.

Rock Legends takes on the personality and taste of the audience with personality music tests prior to each performance, making each show unique.

The band includes members Billy McGuigan, Mathew McGuigan, Ryan McGuigan, Jay Hanson, Rich Miller and Tara Vaughan. Billy McGuigan and his brothers grew up being entertained by their guitar-playing father, a tech sergeant in the U.S. Air Force, while he was home from duty. This upbringing instilled Billy and brothers with a love of the songs that take them back to those days. Today, those memories fuel Billy’s innate talent and desire to bring good times through music to others across the nation.

This performance will take place at 226 E. Main St. in Yadkinville. Tickets are $30. Tickets may be purchased in person, at yadkinarts.org, or by calling 336-679-2941. For more information, email info@yadkinarts.org.
