Iain Sparks’ performance as Roy Orbison has been reviewed the world over to great acclaim. People often think he’s miming to Roy’s original recordings. Some say he brings more to the role than just the look and sound of Roy and adds much of the essence of the fabulous Roy Orbison as well. Iain’s staggering four and a half octave vocal range and powerful, crystal clear voice enable him to recreate the early iconic vocal sound of Roy Orbison when he was at his very best. Check out the high notes in ‘Crying’ and you will hear why Iain is generally regarded as the best in the business all over the world.
