Iain Sparks’ performance as Roy Orbison has been reviewed the world over to great acclaim. People often think he’s miming to Roy’s original recordings. Some say he brings more to the role than just the look and sound of Roy and adds much of the essence of the fabulous Roy Orbison as well. Iain’s staggering four and a half octave vocal range and powerful, crystal clear voice enable him to recreate the early iconic vocal sound of Roy Orbison when he was at his very best. Check out the high notes in ‘Crying’ and you will hear why Iain is generally regarded as the best in the business all over the world. He played Roy in the hit theatre show ‘The Concert They Never Gave” including numerous performances London’s West End theatres and on a variety of other theatre shows, TV adverts & shows including Alan Carr, Westlife (BBC1) The Big Breakfast & many more.
The end of 2011 saw Iain launch a new show – Simply Red-ish – a tribute to the superb Simply Red and Mick Hucknall and has taken off with a bang – this is so different to everything else Iain does that it highlights what a fantastically versatile singer he is – check out the demo pages on the website for his superb rendition of ‘Stars’, ‘For your babies’ and ‘Holding back the years’.
