The Whispering Jack Show

A tribute to the music of John Farnham

The legend himself is honoured to have a show that is a tribute to his songs and his music.
The Whispering Jack show is in its 5th year and in that time the show has received rave revues from just about every performance.
The band uses the most modern equipment to emulate the full sound of Johns music, plus 6 very talented musicians that all sing to reproduce a sound that is so close to the real thing that people often comment about the amazing similarity of the show.
