I have been a big fan of the Electric Light Orchestra since I first heard "Rockaria!" on the top 20 rundown in 1977 ( You are probably beginning to see a pattern here!) so it was only natural that I would start to add an ELO song or two into my set. Totally unexpectedly, Jeff Lynne began to re-enter the public eye in 2012 with a covers album, then the massive Hyde Park show in 2014 thrust him firmly back into the spotlight. Around this time, I was interested to discover that there was not a solo tribute show anywhere in the Midlands or south of England - so I did it!
The wig, aviators and beard colour are not real, but my passion for the music is. My show loosely follows the format of his 2017 Wembley show, but with an interval (to re-touch my beard!) and and the addition of a few more ELO hits including tracks from his 2019 number one album "From out of nowhere". This is a full-on lookalike / soundalike show that has been enjoyed by audiences up and and down the country, and continues to be a popular choice for music- loving venues.

THE THINGS PEOPLE SAY...
"Guy Young is uncanny as Jeff. As a lifelong fan of ELO I was shocked at how authentic he was" (MS - who has worked with Roy Wood, Bev Bevan, Kelly Groucott),
"You rocked Manchester last night mate, absolutely BRILLIANT" (WB)
