Shake off all things humdrum, the stress of holiday hassles and unleash your inner rock star with Ultimate Rock Machine live, Saturday at the Sylvia Theater in York.
Returning to rock the Sylvia after a long term engagement during Scarowinds this fall at Carowinds, this Charlotte-area band brings forth a live music experience intent on being not only big but bigger even the biggest.
Take things higher and go wild with URM’s tribute to classic rock aiming for a rock ‘n roll tribute like no other, bringing forth all the great arena bands together into one killer concert. Their repertoire taps into the force of the ‘70s and ‘80s including Aerosmith, Styx, Whitesnake, Kansas, Journey, Foreigner, Boston and many more.
Touting high energy, and attention to detail URM vows an electrifying experience filled with “soaring vocals, shredding guitars and killer drums.“ The lineup pushing the limits of hard rock glory offers multiple skills from David Hill, vocals; Eddie Darst, guitar/vocals; Daryn Owen, bass/vocals; Tim Canterbury, drums and Carter Owen, keyboards/ guitar/vocals. Together their hard rocking mission is to deliver “all the hits, just like the albums” and get the audience up, on their feet, singing, swaying and screaming for more. Plus, URM is promising “something special with a multimedia event with holiday surprises.”
