<Crystal Lake>, IL –October 12, 2022 – Rotary Rocks Raue Center with “Fleetwood Max: The Definitive Fleetwood Mac Tribute.” This fundraising event will raise the roof with rockin’ music. Experience the magic of Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks with Fleetwood Max at 8 p.m. on November 5, 2022.
“Fleetwood Max truly brings the music of Fleetwood Mac to life,” says Raue Center Board President, Tim Paul. “From the haunting, melodic sounds of Stevie Nicks to the driving beats of Mick Fleetwood, it makes for a night audiences won’t soon forget.”
From the “Rumours” album in 1977 to current touring setlists, Fleetwood Max performs an authentic recreation of the music, magic, and incredible stage production of the legendary Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac at the height of their careers! The Fleetwood Max experience captures the mystical atmosphere, look and sound of these enigmatic Rock and Roll Hall of Famers with outstanding vocal and character performances by a cast of the most respected professional touring musicians on the East Coast.
Lead vocalist Sharon Epperson is a Stevie Nicks look-and-sound-alike who is nearly indistinguishable in her every move, look, and passionate vocals. The audience will be transported to an enchanted place that truly embodies Nicks, with breathtaking costuming and compelling performances of her hit songs, including “Sara,” “Gypsy,” “Rhiannon,” “Edge of Seventeen” and more.
Vocalist and guitarist David Epperson will hypnotize the audience when he takes the stage as Lindsey Buckingham, demonstrating inspired, accomplished guitar and vocal veracity during group numbers, including “Go Your Own Way” and acoustic flair with a rarely seen live, note-for-note performance of the crowd favorite, “Big Love.”
