Get on board the Hitchcock Railway as Good Company Entertainment present The Joe Cocker Experience fronted by Australia’s very own Chev Wilson.
This carefully curated show is a feel good journey through the life’s work of the enigmatic and ever missed Mad Dog of rock soul. Wilson’s whiskey-infused timbre and uncanny natural likeness to a young Joe breathe new life into iconic hits ‘Leave Your Hat On’, ‘You are so Beautiful’, ‘Up Where We Belong’, ‘Hitchcock Railway’, ‘Delta Lady’, ‘Unchain My Heart’, ‘The Letter’, ‘With a Little Help from My Friends’ and many more.
Don’t miss this ten-piece powerhouse band performing the biggest hits of the man who is still recognised as one of the most iconic singers of all time, as once we heard a song recreated by Cocker, it was his way we forever wanted to hear it.
Perhaps Paul McCartney said it best when he said, ‘He was a lovely northern lad who I loved a lot and, like many people, I loved his singing. I was especially pleased when he decided to cover ‘With a Little Help from My Friends’ and I remember he and (producer) Denny Cordell coming round to the studio in Saville Row and playing me what they’d recorded and it was just mind-blowing, totally turned the song into a soul anthem and I was forever grateful to him for doing that.’
The Joe Cocker Experience is coming to Lennox Head Cultural Centre on Friday 3 March. The show is two hours and 20 minutes duration, including a 20 minute intermission.
