There are many tributes to Rod Stewart around the world so why is Dylan Cassidys Tribute described as the ULTIMATE? Because to deserve this title you have to believe that you are watching the original artist, and that is exactly what you feel when you see this show.
No wigs no gimmicks just an absolutely striking similarity both visually and vocally, not only the look and the voice Dylan has taken his tribute to Rod one step further by studying Rod The Gods mannerisms his footwork his speaking voice and even his facial expressions during his concerts.
He has his energy, rock and charisma, and like Rod he is witty not brash and oozes panache and class. The immense vibrancy of his performance draws his audience into believing that they are with the great man himself.
Dylan was probably one of the first ROD STEWART TRIBUTE Shows long before tribute shows were as popular as they are to-day. Back in the 80s when Rod had the longer hair the leopard skin cat suit and the visor Dylan was doing the same dont laugh (how fashion has changed!) Dylans Rod Stewart show was then part of a much bigger show along with other tributes who toured the theatres (a sort of Stars in Your Eyes theatre show) long before the popular TV show was even thought of. The success of the show continued for many years, but like all good things the show came to an end and all the performers went on to do other things.
Dylan primarily from a musical theatre background went on to do other things within the industry. After doing Rod Stewart for so long it seemed only natural that Dylan would want to do something quite different and craved to be himself again this is when he formed an original band Fly, who had minor chart success and along with Bananarma went on to be support band to a 20,000 strong crowd for the very famous SPECIALS who were number one at the time with the hit GHOST TOWN sadly the record deal for Dylans original band Fly was not quite what was promised and the band did not fly anymore.
It was now back to musical theatre and the acting skills learned early in his career were a god send for parts in Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph, and The Blues Brothers but to name a few. Some TV and film work (small parts mainly) and heaps of jingles (adverts) and voice overs. Working a long side many up and coming artists and actors who are now household names, but Dylan himself never really got the lucky break.
Rod was still under his skin and was one of the parts he enjoyed playing most of all, because being Rod there were parts of himself that he was able to nurture, his acting, performing, stage craft and sheer good old Rock & Roll, and so here now was Rod again, only this time it would be even better!
The amount of people who remark that the whole persona is just incredible is very encouraging, and even partners who have been dragged along unwillingly to see a Tribute to their spouses idol have been converted therefore (Rod himself has acquired even more fans). So here you have it a little story about a big personality doing what he loves best.
