I am now Keyboardist with US-Based Queen Tribute Band, Celebrating Queen
Over the past few months I have been working with a band based in the USA. It is a Queen tribute band and we did a cover of Under Pressure during the first lockdown. After that we spoke about the possibilities and I’m delighted to announce that I am now keyboardist and musical director with the US based Queen Tribute band, ‘ Celebrating Queen’. This amazing band hasfor many years been entertaining audiences in the USA and also in Europe with a powerful show with the music of the rock band Queen. As you may know I am a huge Queen fan and I run my own Queen fan site called ‘Shanes’s Queen Site‘ which you can visit via the links above.
The Celebrating Queen band are currently sorting bookings and tour dates for 2021 shows, such as festivals, events and custom venues – all covid dependant. For more details on booking Celebrating Queen please visit the official website www.celebratingqueen.com !
I have been playing the music of Queen for many years, and since 1993 and this great opportunity is a real dream come true for me, as it has been something which I have always wanted to do. I already play in a classic rock covers band in Clomnel called ‘Custom 160‘ but a dedicated Queen opportunity … I couldn’t say no!
The setlist of the band is varied, including all the Greatest Hits like Bohemain Rhapsody, Killer Queen and Radio Ga Ga as well as deep cuts like March of the Black Queen, Stone Cold Crazy and Death on Two Legs.
So from here, as I write this in the middle of lockdown during mid-pandemic October 2020 it’s just a waiting game. I’m hoping that concert dates can actually be booked for next year. I hope you will join me on the journey and I will keep you updated on tour dates and any venues that are booked. Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube via the links below.
It’s sure to be an exciting time and I will upload as much detail on this site as is possible – and don’t forget to visit my Queen site also if you are a fan… lots to entertain you there also.
