DYLANesque - The Bob Dylan Story

Saturday, October 14, 2017 - 8:00pm
Lighthouse Theatre
2 hours 30 minutes

Back from a hugely successful tour of regional NSW and VIC, DYLANesque – the Bob Dylan Story have announced they are playing at the Warrnambool’s Lighthouse Theatre on Sat 14 October. This much acclaimed show is a powerful celebration of the life, times and music of the legendary Bob Dylan.

The two-hour narrated concert leads audiences through the unforgettable songs and milestone events that shaped Bob Dylan, one of the world’s most influential artists, who was recognised last year with the Nobel Prize for Literature.

The tribute show, devised and performed by musician Jeff Jenkins, is a roller-coaster journey which charts the humble beginnings of Dylan’s career, his pivotal relationships and break-ups, his trailblazing songs of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the multitude of musical influences – folk, blues, country, rock ‘n’ roll – and the considerable impact his songs had on popular music and culture. Jenkins opens the show with the extraordinary tale from 1961, when an intrepid teenager hitch-hiked his way from Duluth Minnesota to New York City with only a guitar and $10 in his pocket, busking to make a living. This same young man would go on to become one of the most successful and revered songwriters of all time.

Enjoy authentic renditions of Dylan classics including: Blowin’ in the Wind, Lay Lady Lay, Tangled up in Blue, Rolling Stone, Hurricane, All Along the Watchtower and A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall.

Backed by four stellar musicians, Jenkins’ engaging performance recalls the controversial scenes when Dylan “went electric” at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, how he went from solo artist to playing with The Band, and through his rich and varied musical incarnations, including the much-loved Traveling Wilburys.

Says Jenkins: “I read everything I could get my hands on about Dylan and worked all the fascinating stories into a show that would make a great night of rock ‘n’ roll. Dylan is an intriguing subject because of his constant evolution as an artist, immense catalogue of work and his personality; he’s a man who will always march to the beat of his own drum.”


“Jeff Jenkins sounds uncannily like Bob Dylan; he’s a great interpreter and eerily similar. The show is fantastic.” – ABC Radio
