Bernie Jessome
Roy Orbison Tribute

Roy Orbison possessed one of the great rock and roll voices. He sang heartbroken ballads and bluesy rockers alike, running up a formidable hit streak in the early 60's.  From the release of "Only the Lonely" in 1960 to "Oh! Pretty Woman," a span of four years, Orbison cracked the Top Ten eight times and had 19 top 40 entries for Monument through 1964. Orbison's most memorable performances were melodramatic ballads, such as "Crying" and "It's Over," which he sang in a brooding, tremulous voice. The melancholy in his songs resonated with listeners of all ages, but especially heartsick teenagers who knew how it felt to lose a love.

Bernie Jessome began his musical career singing with The Esquires and as his career took off he found himself opening for his idol Roy Orbison and groups like The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones. In 1991 he formed a Roy Orbison Tribute production, and, then connected with the huge Legends of Rock and Roll organization and toured Canada cast in the role of Roy Orbison. Bernie has performed throughout the United States and spent more than a year with the U.S. based American Superstars. He has performed in Las Vegas and spent four months performing at the Grand Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi. Touring the continent as his idol in The Roy Orbison Story, Bernie Jessome is having the time of his life. The time and thought that went into the production of the show are remarkable.
