Atlantic Crossing is one of Canada’s elite tribute packages featuring world-class tributes to the Beatles, Elton John and Rod Stewart.

It’s the best of British music with three big tributes in one big show at the Salmar Classic Theatre on Friday, Sept.  27.

This multi-talented cast consists of Marc Lafrance, Brent Stewart and Mick Dalla Vee who, when not with Atlantic Crossing are touring the world as the backing band with classic rock legends Bachman & Turner.

The fourth band member is Dave Reimer of Barney Bentall fame.

Collectively their music careers span three decades.

Some of their performance and studio credits include Alice Cooper, Bon Jovi, Carly Simon, Cher, Glass Tiger, Loverboy, Trooper and a long list of others.

From Alan Frew, who wrote a Rod Stewart hit, to Patricia Conroy and a who’s who in the music world, Atlantic Crossing has been described as ‘amazing.’

“I have never heard anyone sound that close to Rod Stewart,” says Loverboy’s Mike Reno. “The crowd loved this show.”

From Atlantic Crossing’s spot-on versions of early Beatles classic’s to the energetic and flamboyant Sir Elton, to the most authentic Rod Stewart tribute you’ll hear anywhere, Atlantic Crossing celebrates the best of British music.

The concert takes place at 7:30 at the Salmar Classic Theatre.
