Billy Buchanan, The Ambassador of Rock ‘n Soul, puts on a nonstop, no holds barred show that is an authentic, jawdropping homage to The Pioneers. Buchanan channels soul greats like Ray Charles, The Drifters, Sam Cooke, James Brown, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jackie Wilson, Stax icons, Motown superstars, and many more with ease. Born and raised in Cleveland, OH, the city where DJ Alan Freed first coined the phrase "Rock and Roll", Billy Buchanan has a deep musical heritage. Digging into his father's LPs at a very young age, he became a disciple of all the soul, blues, and rock trailblazers. Not only does this gritty song and dance man belt out the classics like nobody’s business, he is an exceptional, award winning songwriter. In his original music, you can hear the backbeat rhythms and musical influences of all the artists he admires. His forthcoming album, “ShagShuffleShimmyShakeSwing Vol. 1”, will be released January 2018. He also performs popular artists such as Prince, Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, and Pharrell Williams in his own unique, soul stirring style. Drawing people of all ages, races, and backgrounds straight to the middle of dance floor, his fans shag, swing, twist, lindy hop, stroll, mash potato, and watusi all night long. When rock and roll was still in its infancy, it was electrifying, unrestrained, and unapologetic. Billy Buchanan exemplifies all of those characteristics and more!
