Queen – Queen Nation

Queen Nation 1There is little doubt among the pure rock community that the legendary band Queen and lead performer Freddie Mercury earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in rock history. Queen, the kings of arena rock, performed to packed stadiums around the globe for over two decades.

Freddie took showmanship by a rock front man to a new untapped level and was undisputedly crowned the lord of arena rock. He mesmerized audiences with his charismatic energy and larger than life stage persona. Upon his death in 1991, a huge void was left in the rock concert world, which to this day has not yet been matched.

Queen Nation 2Queen Nation, a tribute to Queen, was formed in 2004. Queen Nation consists of: Joe Retta or Gregory Finsley on vocals & keyboards as Freddie Mercury, Mike McManus on guitar as Brian May, Pete Burke on drums as Roger Taylor, and Parker Combs on bass as John Deacon. The mission of the show is to carry on the musical torch and pay homage to the golden age of vintage Queen concerts.

Queen Nation’s live 90-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as We Will Rock You – Bohemian Rhapsody – We Are The Champions – Crazy Little Thing Called Love – You’re My Best Friend – Another One Bites The Dust – Under Pressure and many more. They have performed in front of thousands of people at casinos, fairs, festivals and private affairs.

Joe Retta is a talented singer and performer who has an uncanny ability to totally assume the role of rock’s greatest icons. His role accomplishments include Ronnie James Dio, Paul Rogers, Robert Plant and of course Freddie Mercury. Joe can easily recreate the vocals of the late Queen frontman complete with his dead-on physical appearance and on-stage mannerisms.

Growing up in Rochester New York, Joe’s biggest influences were Stevie Wonder, Edgar Winter, Steve Walsh (Kansas) and lovely and talented Cher.
