Marrakesh Express stops by the Riviera 0n Saturday

Niagara Gazette — Marrakesh Express, the world’s only touring tribute to legendary supergroup Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young will be performing Saturday at the Riviera Theatre in North Tonawanda.

The show goes on at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 presale and $30 the day of the show.

This could just be the next best thing to seeing the legendary Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young live.

Think about it ‚ there are hundreds, if not thousands of tribute bands performing the music of the Beatles, Rolling Stones, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, U2, and other monsters of rock. But Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young? Next to none.

A band dedicated to tributing CSNY is unheard of due to the difficulty in replicating the 3- and 4-part vocal harmonies that made the group international superstars.

Marrakesh Express is the world’s only touring CSNY tribute band and excels at reproducing their complex songs and cascading, layered harmonies. The band takes the audience back to the late 1960s with youthful musicians who bring an authentic hippie vibe and visual to the stage.

CSNY was arguably the biggest band in the world after the demise of the Beatles, and is one of the most enduring and influential musical groups of all time. The band, born in the turbulent years of the late 1960s, released hit after hit that spoke directly for their generation. Their songs remain in heavy rotation on classic rock radio stations to this day.

Marrakesh Express upholds the integrity of that music with their vivid and realistic performance of CSNY’s most recognizable songs, featuring four harmonizing vocalists backed by a top-flight band.

Marrakesh Express has played to tens of thousands of fans at music festivals, theaters, fairs, performing arts centers, and casinos, including headlining the Woodstock 40th Anniversary Tribute Concert. The music of CSNY has stood the test of time and fans of the classic rockers, as well as young people who are curious about “the 60s,” can get a taste of it live.
