This week, Ira spoke with Brody Dolyniuk.
Brody Dolyniuk, performing in “Bronson, Brody and Beatles-A Hard Day’s Night of Legendary Music,” November 28 and “Totally 80s Symphonic!” December 7 (both at The Smith Center) is a multi-faceted, self-taught musician who began his professional music career playing in piano bars.
A chance meeting with a pair of star-shaped sunglasses led to forming an Elton John tribute band Brody called Yellow Brick Road. Soon YBR began going outside the EJ catalog to perform other classic rock giants such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and more.
Within a year, YBR was a steady working band in the Las Vegas music scene and had cultivated a large local following. YBR also became an in-demand choice for the corporate entertainment market.
After 14 years of solid work, Brody stepped down as front man for YBR to pursue other avenues, namely his role as a vocalist for Windborne Music’s touring symphony shows, singing the Music of Queen and The Who. Simultaneously Brody had been developing his own production called Symphonic Rockshow.
Now residing in Southern California, Brody continues to tour, as well as perform as a producer and session musician.
