Tribute to loved star

LOTS of gel, hairspray and throat lozenges are what Rod Stewart impersonator Dave Patten will be reaching for when he performs his tribute show at Canterbury League Club on Saturday, July 6.

Patten says Rod Stewart is one of the world’s favourite musical icons and a loveable larikin.
“There will be plenty of cheeky leopard skin and shiny costumes when ‘Rod’ hits the stage in all his sparkled glory,” he said.
“It’s an honour to pay tribute to Rod and his wonderful music.
“He was heavily influenced by British bands of the ‘60s Invasion era so the show tells the story of the evolution of Rod Stewart and legends of his homeland.”
With a musical songbook spanning generations with dozens of timeless hits and over 100 million albums sold over five decades, there will be plenty of songs to which the audience can sing along.
One of the favourites will be ‘Maggie May’ for its infectious lyrics and instantly recognisable mandolin tune but Patten’s favourite Stewart song will always be ‘Sailing’ for its beautifully written lyrics.
Other songs on the night include I Don’t Want to Talk About It, You’re In My Heart, and Hot Legs. The accompanying Best of Britain Band will also perform hits by the likes of Gerry & The Pacemakers, Herman’s Hermits, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles.
Show starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available at canterbury.com.au.
