A powerful, moving celebration of the life, times and music of the legendary Bob Dylan, the much-acclaimed show DYLANesque – the Bob Dylan Story has already won a legion of fans.
The two-hour narrated concert leads audiences through the unforgettable songs and milestone events that shaped Bob Dylan, one of the world’s most influential artists, who last year received the Nobel Prize for Literature.
The tribute show, devised and performed by singer/guitarist Jeff Jenkins, is a roller-coaster journey which charts the humble beginnings of Dylan’s career, his pivotal relationships and break-ups, his trail-blazing songs of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the multitude of musical influences – folk, blues, country, gospel, rock ‘n’ roll – and his profound impact on popular music and culture.
DYLANesque is packed with authentic renditions of Dylan classics including: Blowin’ in the Wind, Lay Lady Lay, Tangled up in Blue, Rolling Stone, Hurricane, All Along the Watchtower and A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall.
Backed by four stellar musicians, Jenkins gives a passionate and spirited performance that recalls the controversial scenes when Dylan “went electric” at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, how he went from solo artist to playing with The Band, and through his rich and varied musical incarnations, including the much-loved Traveling Wilburys.
“Jeff Jenkins sounds uncannily like Bob Dylan; he’s a great interpreter and eerily similar. The show is fantastic.” – ABC Radio
