People with a hankering for music from the good old days may want to head to Arcadia Theater, which welcomes back “Jukebox Heroes,” featuring the versatility of the Mahoney Brothers.

The brothers, Tim, Brian and Mike, will perform a live musical tribute to legendary artists at 8 p.m. Jan. 26 at the historic theater, 1418 Graham Ave., Windber.

“This is a live impersonation show that is fast paced, and we duplicate every song, note for note,” said Tim Mahoney in a telephone interview.

Tim is the oldest bother in the act and each Mahoney plays multiple instruments as they belt out hit after hit.

Among the musical legends that are chronicled in the show are a young Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers, Rick Nelson, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, the Beach Boys and the Beatles.

Even the brothers’ instruments and amplifiers are vintage, further authenticating the classical sound.

Tim was quick to point out that the success of each show is determined by the reaction of audience members.

“We are impersonators, and for people who have never seen us, by the time we play two or three routines, they get it and get caught up in the excitement,” Tim said.

Frank Cunsolo, president of Arcadia, calls the return of the Mahoney Brothers a command performance.

“We had them here last January and they sold out,” Cunsolo said. “Because of that turnout, we know there are many people who want to see them again.”

The group, from Trenton, N.J., has recorded and released several original singles, but concentrates on impersonations.

Tickets range from $28 to $32.

They can be purchased in advance from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays at the box office or by calling 467-9070.
