Shadowing H

Detailed description for this Tribute Band

As recognised throughout the Shadows’ fan community, by critics and by The Shadows themselves, this guy presents the only fully accurate look-alike and sound-alike tribute to the world's greatest instrumental group: Hank Marvin and The Shadows. He has appeared on television and radio, and has played alongside various members of The Shadows. Bruce Welch requested him to play lead guitar for his group at the Lakeside Country Club for Shadowmania 2012. He was first-choice guitarist for the legendary Jet Harris. He has performed with former Shadows Brian “Licorice” Locking, Alan Jones and Cliff Hall. Other noted musicians who have joined him onstage include singer and actor Mike Berry, bassist Mo Foster and The Tornados’ Clem Cattini. Using accurate specification Fender guitars with authentic equipment, he captures The Shadows’ “Holy Grail” sound of the early 1960s as well as the tones of later years, supported by the very best quality backing tracks (all songs and instrumentals are performed in the original keys). Depending on location, venue facilities and event, his act even includes a giant red Fender Stratocaster guitar as a backdrop (as seen on the BBC's "Never Mind the Buzzcocks"). This Ultimate Hank Marvin Experience features all the instrumental hits plus superb vocals and all of Marvin’s movements and mannerisms, including the famous steps! There are plenty of chances for audience participation, too. Justin's talent and his similarity to Hank Marvin's playing style have often fooled people into thinking he is miming. Charismatic and fun, performed with an energy that has audiences clamouring for more, Justin's "Shadowing Hank" show is just like the real thing!
