Johnny plays Karen & Elvis!

Johnny played three major pop music icons – Elvis, John Lennon and none other than Karen Carpenter in his self-penned show ‘Come Back to Blackpool Karen Carpenter.

The show played to sell out audiences and Johnny sang all of Karen’s greatest hits.

This is what an impressed reviewer said.

The Grove Hotel

This is a new writing by the very talented Johnny Dysfunctional and Deirdre Costello. Whilst not purporting to be an impersonation of Karen Carpenter, Johnny’s portrayal was spookily close – well done and keeping the singing voice going throughout. It was great hearing the great songs again and being reminded of Karen’s tragically short life.

We are taken through the rough patch that Johnny and Chazza are going through to its conclusion which is both funny and sad and very well played.

The audience was singing along and really appreciative of the trip down memory lane. We even had a cameo appearance from a Beatle and Elvis!

Thank you this was a good fun show with great songs well performed.
