- Iconic Canadian Rock and Roll -
featuring: Randy Bachman and his band, with Charles Cozens (conductor/arranger)
Fourteen symphonic interpretations of some of his most enduring hits with the Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive, including You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet, Undun, These Eyes, American Woman and, of course, Takin' Care of Business.
"The loud 'n' proud show, aptly titled Randy Bachman Symphonic Overdrive featured two full sets of the Winnipeg-born artist's hits arranged by acclaimed Canadian conductor/arranger Charles Cozens, who also joined Bachman onstage on keyboard.
Many of the orchestral arrangements, arguably, were window dressing for the band, with a few exceptions being a stylized You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet, and lushly harmonized string sections during Let it Ride. Takin' Care of Business now guised as a Texas shuffle also closed the two-hour show that also included Laughing, No Time and Undun." - WINNIPEG FREE PRESS
Few artists can claim to have made a bigger impact on popular music than Randy Bachman, widely regarded as the “architect of Canadian rock ‘n’ roll.” His renowned songwriting acumen produced “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet,” “American Woman,” “Let it Ride, “Taking Care of Business,” “Looking Out for #1,” “No Sugar Tonight” and “These Eyes,” tracks that have become pop‐culture touchstones.
One of the Great White North’s favourite musical sons, Bachman co-founded iconic bands The Guess Who and Bachman‐Turner Overdrive, earning over 120 gold and platinum albums/singles around the world as a performer and producer, and amassing more than 40 million in record sales. He’s also no stranger to garnering coveted #1 spots on radio playlists, having done so in over 20 countries.
His accomplishments haven’t gone unrecognized, of course. In addition to his induction into the Musicians Hall of Fame in Nashville, Bachman has the distinction of being the only one of his countrymen to be inducted twice into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, most recently alongside his fellow original Bachman‐Turner Overdrive members in 2014. A recipient of the Order of Canada, Bachman’s overwhelming international influence and popularity was acknowledged in 2011 by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), in the form of the Global Impact Award.
