Why So Madonna?

No other recording artist has had such a social-cultural impact on the world and paved the way for other female performers than the Queen of Pop, MADONNA. While the superstar continues to tour and has reinvented herself, many fans reminisce about their youth and the effect her music had on them in the 80’s and early 90’s. So Madonna celebrates her glory days by paying homage to that young, hungry girl who wanted to “rule the world.” Julianne Ruck embodies this energy and drive. She emulates M’s soft & sqeaky voice from the synth pop days, to her deep & sultry vocals on her ballads. Ruck is a natural performer… and no stranger to playing royalty! She reigns as Queen Isabella at Medieval Times, and has belted “Dancing Queen” on many tours with The ABBA Show. With up to 5 wardrobe changes per show, Ruck nails Madonna’s infamous “Blonde Ambition” look, “Like A Virgin” wedding dress, early 80’s glam getup, and more! Each change is effortless and high-quality. And the boys are something to see as well! Randy Simer, Rodney Pino, and Emanuele Moretti are veterans in the tribute world. They have won awards, toured internationally, and have been featured on AXS TV’s World’s Greatest Tribute Bands (Seasons 3 & 4). They each bring their own unique persona to the show, dancing along with Julianne… And you DON’T want to miss their performance of “Vogue”!
