Australia’s greatest soul voice Doug Parkinson presents the ultimate tribute to Joe Cocker in a night of soul and rock classics.
A heartfelt and respectful homage to the man and his music, this Joe Cocker tribute is also an exciting opportunity to hear the gravelly soulful voice of an Australian singing legend in an evening of not one, but two of the greatest soul voices of our time.
Joe Cocker is an irresistible force who combines a love of American soul music with standout interpretations and depth of feeling; not dissimilar to the soulful and smoky voice of Doug Parkinson. Often described as an impassioned master of interpreting others' songs, there couldn't be a more appropriate singer to showcase the ultimate tribute to Joe Cocker. In the first set, be taken on a journey of Parkinson's own music, before reliving the Joe Cocker classics you know and love.
Accompanying Parkinson are some of Australia’s most admired musicians; a crack rhythm section of the finest. If you love Joe Cocker’s voice and songs you will not want to miss this ultimate tribute, for one night only at City Recital Hall.
