It was the legendary Johnny Cash who stated quite openly that Jade Hurley OAM was the best act he had ever worked with ….."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 first minute Jade hits the stage, he connects with the audience – you’ll be clapping your hands, singing along and laughing at Jade’s comic antics.
We can’t wait for Jade to return to COPACC to rock the classic music of Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee Lewis, Del Shannon, Chuck Berry, Johnny O’Keefe, and so many more!
