Lennon Retrospective

John Lennon Tribute UK’s show ‘Lennon Retrospective ’ aims to take the audience on a journey through John Lennon ’s best loved songs starting with his solo work and culminating in the early Beatles classics. JLUK put on a two-hour, fully-costumed show ‘Lennon Retrospective’ covering Lennon’s best known  solo work as well as classic Lennon-penned Beatles songs. The band is fron ted by Lennon look-and-sound-alike Gaz Keenan. Gaz featured heavily in an I TV reality show that aired in October 2018. Gaz has put together a professi onal band of musicians with many years experience playing theatre venues in  leading tribute acts, and the Lennon Retrospective has been created to del iver wide appeal as well as a highly authentic Lennon/Beatles experience. G az Keenan is an accomplished musician with over 25 years of experience in t he entertainment industry at varying levels. Gaz’s passion for The Beatles and John Lennon in particular led to the conception of John Lennon UK – A Tribute to John Lennon. John Lennon UK aims to faithfully re create Johns soulful vocals, his rugged and passionate guitar playing, John s simplistic but beautiful piano work, his look, always so cool, his manner isms, his accent and, of course – his caustic wit!!

John Lennon Tribute UK is a UK based tribute to John Lennon covering The Beatles years as well as John’s solo years. Gaz Keenan is a semi professional musician with over 25 years of experience performing at Theatres, Festivals and corporate events all across the UK.

Gaz appeared in ITV’s ‘The Big Audition’ to win through as the Best John Lennon to land a spot in one of the UK’s biggest Beatles Tributes. Since then, Gaz has put together a great bunch of musicians to concentrate on John Lennon UK.
Expect to hear “Imagine”, “Jealous Guy”, “Instant Karma” and more from John’s solo years as well as “I Am The Walrus”, “All you Need is Love”, “A Day in The Life”, “Come Together”, “Hard Days Night”, “I Feel Fine”, “Please Please Me” and many more.
Supported by a wonderful band of musicians – Guitar wizard – John Brunsdon, Keys – Mark Dryden, Bass – Andy Perry and Drums – Graham Twist.
