Dylanesque - The Story Of Bob Dylan

DYLANesque front man Jeff Jenkins, opens the show with a tale from 1961, when a young 19 year old hitch-hiked his way from Duluth Minnesota to New York City with a guitar and $10 in his pocket – and went on to become one of the world’s most successful songwriters of all time.
Starting from his humble beginnings busking in cafes, ‘DYLANesque – The Bob Dylan Story’ is a 2-hour narrated rock show that leads you through the songs and events that shaped Dylan; his relationships and breakups, religious conversions, the dramatic scenes when Bob ‘went electric’ at Newport Folk Festival in 1965, how he went from playing solo to playing with The Band, through all his incarnations including the much loved Travelling Wilbury’s.

This Bob Dylan tribute is a theatre piece that takes you on a moving and powerful musical journey. Jenkins performs with an electrifying 4 piece band giving incredible performances of ‘Blowin in the Wind’, ‘Lay Lady Lay’, ‘Tangled up in Blue’, ‘RollingStone’, ‘Hurricane’, ‘AllAlong the Watchtower’ and many more – this is a show not to be missed!

'Jeff sounds eerily like Dylan, he’s great but eerily similar!'
Lindy burns, ABC774 Radio Host

'I saw Bob Dylan in concert but I prefer the DYLANesque version'
Phil Kafcaloudes, ABC radio

'Fantastic…and that’s from someone who knows the words and intonations of every single Dylan song!'
Jill Fraser, TV Producer
