Description

Get your groove on in this fabulously fun musical chat show hosted by Aussie singer, producer, talent coach and ex kid’s TV star John Rowe. Not so carefully treading that fine line between kitsch and kool, this show is a superbly silly mix of groovy live music, spontaneous activities, chit-chat, show-and-tell, dodgy dancing, surprise guests... and donuts! A night of unadulterated fun with John and his band in his funky makeshift lounge room. Every show is different... every show’s a roaring hit!

f you are after a late-night laugh with one of the most charming, talented and upbeat people then The John Rowe Show is for you! Camp as Christmas, entertaining with a capital E, audience participation that isn’t hideous, part chat show, singalong and peek inside John’s record collection, support from a couple of super top musicians (thanks Stefan Nowak) … John can sing and dance like a dream. I hope John and his team are honing this for a Sydney outing in the future – this is mardi-gras your mum would love. Two and a half cheese crumbs from me – we were definitely the test audience last night. This show has the potential to be the entire block! Note I have posted a pic of these guys flyering on the Mile – hope they are still smiling like that in 3 weeks time (flyering is one of the soul crushing aspects of being in a huge fesitival)!
