Billy Buchanan & his Rock 'n Soul Revue put on a nonstop, no holds barred show that is an authentic, jaw dropping homage to The Pioneers. Buchanan channels soul greats like Ray Charles, The Drifters, Sam Cooke, James Brown, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jackie Wilson, Stax icons, Motown superstars, and many more with ease. Born and raised in Cleveland, OH, the city where DJ Alan Freed first coined the phrase "Rock and Roll", Billy Buchanan has a deep musical heritage. Digging into his father's LPs at a very young age, he became a disciple of all the soul, blues, and rock trailblazers. Not only does this gritty song and dance man belt out the classics like nobody’s business, he is an exceptional, award winning songwriter. In his original music, you can hear the backbeat rhythms and musical influences of all the artists he admires. His latest album, “ShagShuffleShimmyShakeSwing Vol. 1”, was released in January 2018. Drawing people of all ages, races, and backgrounds straight to the middle of dance floor, his fans shag, swing, twist, lindy hop, stroll, mash potato, and watusi all night long. When rock and roll was still in its infancy, it was electrifying, unrestrained, and unapologetic. Billy Buchanan & his Rock ‘n Soul Revue exemplifies all of those characteristics and is a true celebration of the music.
