The undisputed king of rock and roll music in Australia
It was the legendary Johnny Cash who openly stated that Jade was the best act he had ever worked with and was quoted in the Irish Press as saying “If I wasn’t who I am, I would find it very hard to follow him on any stage anywhere in the world … he’s one hell of a showman and entertainer, this Aussie … and he can sure play that damn piano”.
From the minute Jade hits the stage the audience has a lot of fun with him, laughing at his onstage comic antics and singing along to classics like “Rockin’ All Over the World”, “Old Time Rock and Roll”, “Peggy Sue” and “Great Balls of Fire” and of course his own number one hits – “Down in the Riverina”, “It’s all Over Now” and his latest smash hit “I Don’t Look Good Naked Anymore”.
As well as being a headline act in his own right, Jade Hurley toured with some of the all-time greats including Johnny and June Carter Cash, Johnny Ray, Woody Herman, Don Williams and Johnny O’Keefe internationally.
Jade continues to present his high energy rock and roll and country music show Australia-wide to packed audiences and standing ovations.
As quoted in the American press, “Every time you see this Aussie Jade Hurley rocking away and jumping all over his piano, you get the same high class performance. I just don’t know how he does it or where he gets the energy from”.
It is no wonder that Jade Hurley OAM is regarded as one of the all-time icons of the Australasian music and entertainment scene.
