Latest Press Release

van head guitar“VAN THE MAN” had its roots in the highly successful Sydney wine bar circuit of the 1970’s. “Hogan & The Becketts” (the backbone of Van the Man) played all the hits through the 80’s and 90’s, with Van Morrison being one of the favourites. In 1999 “Van the Man” was formed and started its career with a bang, being invited to perform at the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. According to Richard Jinman of “The Age” ….. “sound right … oh yes! Van the Man do the business.

Hogan has Van’s jazzy vocal phrasing and gruff irish burr down pat. Hit or miss? Absolute HIT!“ “Van the Man” has gone on to perform for State of Origin fixtures, Bledisloe Cup Finals and sold out one of Sydney’s premier live music venues, The Basement.

Other premium venues include Blue Beat Live Club at Double Bay, all three Lizotte’s Live Music Venues and a sellout show on New Year’s Eve at the highly acclaimed international musicians’ venue of The Clarendon Guesthouse in Katoomba.

With exclusive appearances for the Packer family at their country retreat Ellerston, seven highly acclaimed tours of New Zealand and a recent triumphant performance at Norway’s Music Festival in Kjollefjord, “Van the Man” is a must see for all Van Morrison fans, both young and old.
