Queen Tribute to Perform for Saturday’s Concert & Fireworks Show!

The Town of Orange Labor Day Concert & Fireworks Show will take place on Saturday, September 2nd (rain date:  Monday, September 4th) on the Orange Fairgrounds, 525 Orange Center Road.

Event Coordinator Rocky Salperto confirmed today, “After two July rainouts for public safety reasons, the event has been successfully moved to Labor Day Weekend.  In addition, I am thrilled to present the Queen Tribute featuring Johnny Zatylny as Freddie Mercury to perform on the new show date.”

Look-a-like, sound-a-like, Johnny Zatylny has been captivating audiences by carrying on the musical tradition of Freddie Mercury since 2000.  His amazing likeness with the original, matches his perfect performance of Queen songs both through his voice and his unmistakable stage presence.  Zatylny is considered to be among the world’s top three Freddie Mercury impressionists.  He has performed for years throughout Europe and North America with his Queen Tribute band.

This fabulous 6-piece Queen Tribute is making the trip to Orange, CT from Montreal, Canada.  This is an exciting, high-energy show that will get people out of their seats.  The Queen Tribute is a grand, theatrical representation of the real Queen concerts, complete with vocal quality unmatched by any other tribute out there.  It captures the essence of a band that transformed the music industry and set lofty standards for those who followed.  This band will set the stage for a flash back to one of the world’s finest groups of Rock musicians!

The festivities will begin promptly at 6:30 pm with welcoming comments from Orange First Selectman Jim Zeoli.  The concert will be followed by fireworks at 9:30 pm.

The event is made possible through area sponsors including Major Sponsors:  Yale University, The Orange Foundation, The Law Firm of Marino, Zabel & Schellenberg, PLLC, The Law Offices of Debra B. Marino, LLC & the Town of Orange.  Also, thanks go out to our Gold, Silver, Bronze and Patron Sponsors.

Popular Food Trucks are lined up, and novelty items will also be available for purchase at the fairgrounds beginning at 6:00 pm.  A WPLR radio personality will also be on location.  Come early and get a good seat.  Admission is free.  There will be a suggested parking donation of $5 that will benefit the Orange Little League.
