The BEATLES SHOW
is an exciting tribute to the late John Lennon. The show features Alan playing the same guitars as John. Along with his obligatory black Rickenbacker 3/4 size guitar plugged into a Vox amplifier, he plays a J-160E and an Epiphone Casino during the performance. Alan's powerful voice has an uncanny likeness to the raw throated Lennon.
Alan is backed by the big sound of a 5-piece band of experienced and talented musicians together with a great sound and light system.
Born in Melbourne and raised on a diet of Beatles music, Alan first performed as a solo vocalist/guitarist in New Zealand and the Bahamas and has extensive experience in fronting bands in Canada, New Zealand and Australia. He started playing John in the Beatles tribute band, Where's Ringo? back in 2002 and filled in for a sick “John” with The Beatnix during their 2005 Victorian tour. He also performed on ABC radio with Rubber Soul in 2007.
He is an ex-Coodabeen Champion on Radio 3RRR, a graduate of the National Theatre Drama School and performed as the Prince of Wales in the multi award-winning Nova Theatre production of The Scarlet Pimpernel in 2003.
