THE BOB DYLAN STORY
“Jeff Jenkins sounds uncannily like Bob Dylan; he’s a great interpreter and eerily similar. The show is fantastic.” - ABC Radio
A POWERFUL, life-affirming and moving celebration of the life, times and music of the legendary Bob Dylan is earning acclaim and a legion of fans as it prepares for its most ambitious tour to date.
DYLANesque – The Bob Dylan Story is a two-hour narrated rock show that leads audiences through the unforgettable songs and milestone events that shaped Bob Dylan, one of the world’s most influential artists, who last year received the Nobel Prize for Literature.
The tribute show, devised and performed by singer/guitarist Jeff Jenkins, is a roller-coaster journey as it charts the humble beginnings of Dylan’s career, his pivotal relationships and break-ups, his trail-blazing songs of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the multitude of musical influences – folk, blues, country, gospel, rock ‘n’ roll – and ultimately his profound impact on popular music and culture.
Jenkins opens the show with a lively tale from 1961, when an intrepid teenager hitch-hiked his way from Duluth Minnesota to New York City with a guitar and $10 in his pocket, busking in cafes to make a living. This the same young man who would go on to become one of the most successful and revered songwriters of all time.
The dramatic and affectionate tribute show is packed with musical gems: Blowin’ in the Wind, Lay Lady Lay, Tangled up in Blue, Rolling Stone, Hurricane, All Along the Watchtower and A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall.
Backed by four stellar musicians, DYLANesque is a passionate and spirited show that recalls the extraordinary scenes when Dylan “went electric” as the Newport Folk Festival in 1965, of how he went from solo artist to playing with The Band, and through his rich and varied musical incarnations, including the much-loved Travelling Wilbury’s.
Says Jenkins: “I read everything I could get my hands on about Bob Dylan and pulled together ideas and stories that I knew would make a fascinating journey. Dylan is the perfect subject of a rock ‘n’ roll show because of his amazing evolution as an artist. His music has been known to polarize audiences yet he has a huge, fiercely-loyal fan base.”
