Rod Stewart, Fleetwood Mac tribute acts share stage in Courtenay

A couple of superstar rock groups will be saluted at the Sid Williams Theatre when Dreams – a tribute to Fleetwood Mac, and Rod & The Mods – Rod Stewart Experience take to the stage on Tuesday, Oct. 29.

From the music to the costumes, Dreams portrays Fleetwood Mac with incredible authenticity. Formed in 2005, this group of talented, diverse performers came together with a passion for the music, and a desire to take the ‘Tribute Act’ genre to another level. When you sit back and reminisce about the ’70s and ’80s music, one of the top bands to grace the charts was Fleetwood Mac. Even today, 30-plus years later, you can still hear their music on the radio stations around the world. It was with that thought in mind that Dreams was born. Together, Stevie (Tracy Masson), Lindsey (Mario Parente), Christine (Rachael Chatoor), Mick (Todd McGarvey), and John (Ray Doucet) are “The Mac Pack.”

The fab five are joined by the talents of Bob Van Velzen (keyboards), completing this grand six-piece live production. The cast of Dreams takes great pride being able to replicate the Fleetwood Mac sound so closely that it’s difficult to tell the difference.

And… Rod & The Mods is absolutely the most realistic Rod Stewart show next to seeing Rod himself. Brent Stewart offers one of the most authentic Rod Stewart tributes

you will ever see. From the stylish suits and all the signature stage moves to a voice that’s so close you’ll swear it’s Rod, Brent Stewart sets a new high standard for Rod Stewart tributes.

Brent’s voice is so amazingly similar to Rod’s that he has actually been hired to sing on recording sessions for producers and songwriters who are pitching their songs to Rod. No one other than Rod himself sounds this close.

When not performing as Rod Stewart, Brent tours the world playing lead guitar for Rock’n’Roll Hall of Famer Randy Bachman.

Tickets for the show are available online at sidwilliamstheatre.com or at the box office. Showtime is 7:30 p.m.
