Andrew O’Keefe Shouts Johnny O’Keefe
Johnny O’Keefe was the pioneer of rebellious Australian rock and roll and a predecessor to the likes of Bon Scott, Jimmy Barnes and Michael Hutchence that succeeded him. Often labelled as Australia’s Elvis, his explosive live shows left a mark on the best of the best in global rock royalty including Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison.
Having debuted his show to a sold-out season at the 2018 Adelaide Cabaret Festival and two sell-out shows at Palms At Crown Melbourne (for which he attracted a standing ovation each night), Johnny’s real wild nephew—the multi-talented Andrew O’Keefe—delivered an extraordinary performance in Andrew O’Keefe “Shouts” Johnny O’Keefe. Highly applauded by the critics for his song interpretation and his storytelling, Andrew intertwines his own experiences with legendary stories of The Wild One, and takes audiences on a very personal journey through Johnny’s 25-year career, belting out classics like ‘Wild One’, ’Sing Sing Sing’ and ‘Shout’ with an intensity topped only by Johnny himself.
Andrew O’Keefe “Shouts” Johnny O’Keefe is an intensely inspirational representation of Johnny that Andrew delivers via the hits and his own words. His narrative, which includes personal family insights, gives Australia a never before heard or seen a glimpse of what it was like to grow up with the king.
