Joe Cocker is a performer known across the globe. He was most recognisable for his gritty voice and spasmodic movements on stage, he truly had a style all his own. Joe Cocker had a career that spanned a whopping five decades.
During this time, his career had some truly stunning highlights. Most memorable of these was his cover of the Beatles song “With A Little Help From My Friends”. Joe Cocker’s rendition rocketed to number one on the UK charts, virtually overnight. Later he performed it at Woodstock, the Ilse of Man, and the ‘Party At The Palace’ concert. His beloved cover also became the theme song to The Wonder Years.
Throughout his career Joe Cocker had an on-again-off-again relationship with public performance. He toured solidly for almost a decade before retreating from the public eye for several years.
During his later years, Joe Cocker performed at several benefits and charity events.
Fans were distraught when the legend passed away in 2014 aged 70. After 53 years of thrilling crowds, the legend was gone.
Bruce Bird is one of Australia’s most talented Joe Cocker impersonators. The Joe Cocker Tribute Show is an incredible homage to a performer who inspired so many in a career spanning more than 50 years.
The Joe Cocker Tribute Show boasts a 7-piece band consisting of Queensland best sessional artists. Each of these musicians - tremendous in their own right - plays a heartful rendition of Joe Cockers’ very best hits. In each show you are guaranteed to enjoy the musical talents of Bruce Bird, Paul Rea, Steve Turner, Ian Lock, Simon Spencer, Gillian Kristensen, and Ellie Jane.
Bruce Bird does incredibly well in his portrayal of such a unique artist as Joe Cocker. From the same gravelly tone to the unusual rhythmic movements on stage; even the most die-hard fans believe it might be the real Cocker back for one more show.
