Pacific Symphony Pops Gets Saturday Night Fever With Multimedia Tribute Band "Stayin' Alive" Performing The Music Of The Bee Gees

Orange County, CA — May 16, 2018

Pacific Symphony’s Pops season lights up this June with “Stayin’ Alive,” the worlds’ #1 tribute to the Bee Gees, the quintessential pop culture icons of the 1970s! Under the baton of Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman, Pacific Symphony backs the rock group’s energetic disco-pop, providing a lush orchestral atmosphere to the carefully-crafted harmonies and grooves of the timeless sound of the Bee Gees.

“Saturday Night Fever – Music of the Bee Gees” takes place Friday and Saturday, June 8–9, at 8 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Tickets are $54-$169. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (714) 755-5799 or visit

“Stayin' Alive” offers audiences the songs and sights of a full Bee Gees playlist, singing blockbusters such as “Night Fever,” “Jive Talkin',” “How Deep Is Your Love,” “You Should Be Dancing,” “Nights on Broadway” and “Stayin' Alive.” In addition, they perform softer poetic ballads such as “I Started a Joke,” “Massachusetts,” “Fanny Be Tender,” “Words” and “To Love Somebody,” among other great hits.

“Stayin' Alive” is the largest and most definitive production of its kind, offering big-screen video clips, photos and dazzling imagery. This group is the quintessential tribute band to the Bee Gees, capturing the excitement of live performance. “Stayin’ Alive” band members include Tony Mattina on lead and backing vocals and guitar, Todd Sharman on lead and backing vocals, Joseph Janisse on backing vocals and keyboard, “Smokin’” Joe Peeres on guitar, Cheryl Hardy on backing vocals, Chris Mullin on bass and Tom Wolf on the drums.

During the first half of the evening, Principal Pops Conductor Richard Kaufman will set the atmosphere for summer by leading the orchestra in light classics and pops favorites, such as Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever,” John William’s “The Men of Yorktown March” from “Midway,” Alexandre Desplat’s Main Theme from “Monuments Men,” and more.
