The British/Australian group, the Bee Gees had more than one musical lifetime. Alabama music lovers of three generations listened to the Bee Gees.
A tribute band, "Bee Gees Now," will recreate the unusual sounds of each era of the Bees Gees.
You can step back in time and experience the magic of the '60s, the disco era of the mid to late ‘70s and the later songwriting era. The "Bee Gees Now – A Bee Gees Tribute" takes the stage at OWA Theater on Friday, January 12, and Saturday, January 13, with performances starting at 7:30 p.m.
OWA Theater is located at 205 N. OWA Blvd in Foley. It is just off the Foley Beach Express, seven miles north of the Gulf Coast. Details and ticket information can be found here.
The Bee Gees were a trio of singing brothers, born in the United Kingdom, moved to Australia, and moved back to the UK.
The unique Bee Gees sound: the tight-nit three-part harmony. The high tenor falsetto. The vocal vibrato. A listener could recognize the Bee Gees instantly. That's the sound that is coming to Foley.
Saturday Night Fever. And Friday Night Fever. January 12 and 13.
You can immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of a journey through six decades of the Bee Gees.

“To Love Somebody”
“I Just Gotta Get a Message to You”
“I Started a Joke”
A second generation came to know the Bee Gees as “The Disco Kings,” in the 70s era:
“How Deep is Your Love?”
The movie “Saturday Night Fever” and its Bee Gees’ soundtrack.
A third generation of Bee Gees fans enjoyed their writing or producing songs for other artists:
Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers (Bee Gees’ “Islands in the Stream”)
In addition to the vocals of the Bee Gees, the show projects "stunning visuals, authentic costumes, and dazzling lighting effects, transporting the audience to the glittering dance floors of the disco era."
