And the winner by a nose is . . . JAY GATES!
ENTERTAINING, CHARISMATIC, TALENTED . . . Jay's Rod Stewart Tribute has rocked audiences in casinos, clubs, and concert halls from North America and Mexico all the way to Europe and here's what people are saying . . .
"What a great night and excellent show, the best tribute I've been to, Jay is a great guy and great entertainer…a must see show!"
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
"What a fun night out! If you're a Rod Stewart fan you will really love Jay and if you're not you will probably become one by the end of the night!"
Los Angeles, CA
"Jay is a dead ringer for Rod!!"
Mexico City, Mexico
Oh sure, every Rod Stewart impersonator has the haircut, shoes, and clothes . . . some even have the voice and moves. But in addition to all of that, Jay has something the other Rod Stewart look-alikes will never have. He's got the nose . . . HE'S GOT THE NOSE! As Rod himself would SING, some guys have all the luck.
Armed with a repertoire of over forty songs, dressed to the nines in full Rod regalia, and belting it out with a raspy four octave range, Jay consistently brings it on and dares any audience anywhere to leave his performances unhappy. Fun is had by all and it is always a jolly good time indeed!
Be it with a dynamic five-piece band, alone with backing tracks, or any combination in-between, Jay astonishingly recreates all phases of Rod's award winning career from his early days with The Faces right through to his current residency at Caesars Palace Las Vegas.
From the majesty of a full blown rock concert to the intimacy of a singing telegram, Jay's ability to connect with any audience has made his Boston based Rod Stewart Tribute a top choice among event planners, booking agents, and music lovers alike from New England to England . . . make him yours too!
