Australia’s Greatest Soul Voice & His Eight Piece Band.
Australia's greatest soul voice Doug Parkinson presents the ultimate tribute to Joe Cocker in a night of soul and rock classics backed by his 8 piece band.
Joe Cocker was an irresistible force that combined a love of American soul music with standout interpretations delivered with depth of feeling and his interpretations often surpassed the celebrated originals. He magically reworked the songs You Can Leave Your Hat On, She Came In Through The Bathroom Window, The Letter, You Are So Beautiful, Up Where We Belong, Cry Me A River and more with his famous gritty vocals.
There couldn't be a more appropriate singer in Australia to showcase the ultimate tribute to Joe Cocker than the gravelly, soulful, smoky, powerful and unique voice of Australian singing legend Doug Parkinson, also often described as an exciting and impassioned master of interpreting others’ songs.
A highlight of Doug Parkinson's show includes his own hit records, especially the masterful and iconic hit record Dear Prudence, plus his very own interpretations of other legendary artists including Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye.
If you love Joe Cocker’s voice and songs you will not want to miss this ultimate tribute.
