If you can't see Bob then you have to see John. If you don't like Bob's voice but like his songs then this is the man to hear.

"We really, really enjoyed your show at the Cavern. It was excellent. It really was.

The atmosphere was great.

I sang along at the top of my lungs and carried on singing all the way back to Manchester.

We'll certainly be looking forward to your next show!!"
