The Sting Ray’s Jukebox Rock Show Starring Sting Ray Anthony & The Stingers is a powerful tribute to the late and legendary Ritchie Valens! Featuring the only entertainer endorsed by Valens’ estate, the show pays homages to the dynamic singer who left us at the tender age of 17. Valens was on the ill-fated flight that also killed world-famous artists, Buddy Holly and the Big Bopper.
Although he was incredibly young, Valens had already made a significant impact on our country’s music industry as its first Mexican-American rock star; in 2001, he was posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Sting Ray’s portrayal of the iconic entertainer is spot-on; he delivers Valens’ biggest hit, “La Bamba,” with sincere reverence and pure perfection! You’ll also enjoy other songs from the Valens’ catalog, including “Come On Let’s Go,” in addition to music made famous by Ricky Nelson, Bobby Darin, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly and other big artists of the 50’s and early 60’s.
Sting Ray Anthony’s brilliant performance in Sting Ray’s Jukebox Rock quickly impresses everyone who sees it, And it’s not just about the music, Anthony shares the stories behind the songs, making the show an incredibly fulfilling experience.
