John Lennon Tribute UK

Visualise a young Lennon and you have Gaz Keenan. Add a highly professional backing band and from the start you know this is a live music experience you won't forget.

The Lennon Retrospective is a two hour show that promises to take you on a journey through John Lennon’s popular back catalogue, serving up classic solos and Lennon penned early Beatles classics.

Fronted by Gaz Keenan, the band of professional musicians have played theatres countywide with the show, designed to offer an authentic Lennon experience.

A look alike and sound alike, Gaz featured in the ITV show The Big Audition which he went on to win. His ability to recreate John's soulful vocals alongside passionate guitar and piano work, is clear to see on stage. The show is stitched together with costume changes, uncanny mannerisms and caustic wit.

WHY? 'No-one can top Gaz who looks like Lennon in his early years' The Daily Express
