After 30 years being in the background of the finest Australian cabaret, (Meow Meow, Bob Downe, Spontaneous Broadway, Pastel Vespa, Miss Dorothy etc.) the multi-award winning John Thorn has finally got around to doing an original solo show.

Background Boy, showcases John’s immaculate song writing and sublime musicality as he presents a score of his brand new songs road tested around the world (Dublin, Edinburgh, Paris, Cleveland, Toronto and Calgary), including selections from his recent Adelaide Cabaret Festival hit, ‘Looking for Lawson’.

With John firmly in the foreground on piano and lead vocals, he will also be joined by very special guests. The hour-long performance will be a combination of witty comedy pieces bittersweet ballads, musical settings of Henry Lawson poems, and songs inspired by the 1920’s.

Tipping his hat to such greats as Randy Newman and Hoagy Carmichael and directed by Australian and West End legend, Sally Bourne, ‘Background Boy’ will delight all, evoking wit and sophistication of the best ‘New York style’ cabaret.
