The Historic Riviera Theatre presents "The Official Blues Brothers Revue" on Saturday, March 8, at 8 p.m.

There have been many imitators, but there is only one duo in North America sanctioned by Dan Aykroyd and Judith Belushi to don the official hat and sunglasses, and walk in the legendary footsteps of Jake and Elwood Blues. Discovered in Las Vegas, performers Wayne Catania and Kieron Lafferty capture the infectious humor and unbridled spirit of the Blues Brothers like no one since John Belushi and Aykroyd walked the stage. Backed by a powerhouse band, they'll give you a show to remember, packed with classic hits from the Blues Brothers catalog, including "Soul Man," "Rubber Biscuit" and "Sweet Home Chicago" and many more.

Tickets are $25 pre-sale and $30 the day of show.

The Riv presents "Yesterday - Live From Las Vegas! (A Beatle Tribute)" on Saturday, April 12, at 8 p.m.

Hailing from Las Vegas, "Yesterday" is considered the No. 1 Beatles tribute act in the world. "Yesterday" has been touring internationally and satisfying hundreds of thousands of people since 1987 with authentic recreations of live Beatles concerts. This group has performed in more than 1,000 venues in the U.S., and nearly 100 venues in foreign countries.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Jan. 31, at 10 a.m.

The Riv presents Queensryche on Friday, April 18, at 8 p.m. for one performance only.

Queensryche burst onto the music scene in 1982 with their self-titled four-song EP "Queensryche." They quickly gained international recognition. With the follow-up first full-length album, "The Warning," in 1984, and the groundbreaking 1986 release of "Rage For Order," Queensryche continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the '80s. In 1988, the band turned out "Operation: Mindcrime," which would go on to become one of the top 10 best-selling concept records of all time.

All seats are priced at $34.

The theater is located at 67 Webster St., North Tonawanda. For further information, call the box office at 716-692-2413 (weekdays) or order online at www.rivieratheatre.org.
