  • Andrew O'Keefe "Shouts" Johnny O'Keefe - The Barossa Arts Centre

    Having debuted his show to a sold-out season at the 2018 Adelaide Cabaret Festival and two sell-out shows at Palms At Crown Melbourne, star of Australian television and musical theatre, Andrew O’Keefe delivers an extraordinary performance in Andrew O’Keefe “Shouts” Johnny O’Keefe.

    Highly applauded by the critics for his song interpretation and his storytelling, Andrew intertwines his own experiences with legendary stories of The Wild One, and takes audiences on a very personal journey through JOK’s twenty-five year career, belting out classics like ‘Wild One’, ’Sing Sing Sing’ and ‘Shout’ with an intensity topped only by Johnny himself.

    Hit after hit, O’Keefe will deliver a captivating, mesmerising and thoroughly entertaining journey into the life and the stories of Johnny O’Keefe as he channels his Uncle from above.

    Andrew O’Keefe “Shouts” Johnny O’Keefe is an intensely inspirational representation of Johnny that Andrew delivers via the hits and his own words. His narrative, which includes personal family insights, gives Australia a never before heard or seen a glimpse of what it was like to grow up with the king.
