Imagine you could take a Magical Mystery Tour back in time to revisit the sound of The Beatles. Well we can recommend the perfect night for you. Visualise a young Lennon & you have Gaz Keenan.
Add a highly professional backing band & from the start you know this is a live music experience you won’t forget. The “Lennon Retrospective” two hour show brought to you by “John Lennon Tribute UK”, promises to take you on a journey through John Lennon’s popular back catalogue, serving up classic solos and Lennon penned early Beatles classics.
Fronted by Gaz Keenan, the band of professional musicians have played theatres countywide with the show, designed to offer an authentic Lennon experience.
John Lennon Tribute UK aims to pay tribute to this icon in the most authentic & sensitive way.
Faithfully recreating the soulful voice, passionate guitar as well as John’s mannerisms and of course, his caustic wit!
John Lennon Tribute UK is fronted by the Winner of ITV’s ‘The Big Audition’ and leads a band of professional musicians to perform the best of Lennon’s work from The Beatles and his Solo years!!
Gaz Keenan is an accomplished musician with over 25 years of experience in the entertainment industry at varying levels. His passion for The Beatles and John Lennon in particular led to the conception of John Lennon Tribute UK – A Tribute to John Lennon.
Mark Dryden – Keys – Mark has been a professional keyboard player since 1988, working across the UK and Europe, including a stint as part of GMTV’s Rustie Lee’s band, and has played with Dire Straits’ legendary drummer Terry Williams and even shared the stage with members from Led Zeppelin.
He has been involved in theatre shows and various cabaret backing bands and also travelled the UK as a solo keyboard/vocalist and with Jumping Jacks duelling pianos UK tour.
Mark’s most recent project is playing keyboards for Dire Streets; one of the top Dire Straits tribute bands in the UK. John Lennon Tribute UK are lucky to have him.
John Brunsdon – Guitar – John has been a Lennon fan since childhood when his parent’s single version of Revolution first made him realise just how good an angry over driven guitar could sound! Joining John Lennon Tribute UK was a no brainer!
John is an accomplished and versatile guitarist, fronting one of the UK’s leading tribute acts over the last 8 years, as well as playing in countless bands and projects across a wide range of genres.
Andy Perry – the backbone on Bass – Andy became a Bassist using the well-trodden route of being the worst guitarist in a band with no bass player, subsequently delegated to the position of Bass Owner. That was many years ago, a move that proved to be a good one and he is now a seasoned player of many styles ranging from Jazz, Blues, Soul Funk and Rock. Andy plays 4 and 5 string basses, fretted and fretless and Double Bass. Influences include James Jameson, Jaco, Paul McCartney, Duck Dunn and importantly loads of unnamed bass players from local bands playing pubs and clubs back in the day. Of interest to “Gear heads” he uses an ACG Custom J Type 5 String Fretless Bass, a Maruszczyk Elwood 5 String fretted bass and a fretless 4 string Fender clone of unknown origin played through a Handbox R-400 head into TKS cabinets.
