Few performers exhibit the incredible versatility and natural charisma that is the hallmark of British performer John Hides. While still in school, John organized his own band. Rising quickly to prominence, the group performed on national television and in a twelve-week run on London’s famed West End. Such was the acclaim of John’s ensemble that it was chosen to give a command performance for Diana, Princess of Wales.
Crossing the Atlantic, John Hides signed to record his debut album in Los Angeles. The success of this venture led to an extended tour with the famed Abba tribute production, Bjorn Again, which performed worldwide to audiences numbering as large as 100,000. John’s association with this endeavour culminated with a headlining performance at Manchester, England’s Millennium Eve celebration, before a crowd of 65,000.
Success has given John the opportunity to tour the world for the past several seasons, performing his one-man show before sold-out halls. His amazing virtuosity on piano, guitar, and harmonica serves to reinforce his powerful voice, engaging his audiences and bringing them to their feet. Whether it be great love songs, rollicking rock ‘n roll, or the great swing standards, nobody does it better than the incomparable John Hides.
