DOUG PARKINSON HONOURS JOE COCKER
MEMBERS $30 | VISITORS $35
Australia's greatest soul voice Doug Parkinson presents the ultimate tribute to Joe Cocker. A night of soul and rock classics, the electric current runs high; generated from the very talented 8 piece band on stage and of course the powerful and unique voice of Doug Parkinson.
Just a few of the songs Doug Parkinson has included in this new show that rolls along and leaves the audience spellbound. Cocker chose well. He had hit records with songs from the Beatles, Ray Charles, Billy Preston, the Animals and Traffic among others - and then he magically reworked them. Add in his famous gritty vocals and Cocker’s interpretations often surpassed the celebrated originals.
There couldn't be a more appropriate singer in Australia to showcase the ultimate tribute to Joe Cocker than the gravelly soulful voice of Australian singing legend Doug Parkinson, often described as exciting and impassioned and also a master of interpreting others’ songs.
Parkinson is not only an entertainer and amazing vocalist. One example that brings the house down night after night is the huge hit for Doug, and probably the best version to date; the Beatles' Dear Prudence. Hard to believe it gets much better than this, and yet it does!
