J.J Midnight : Lead Singer
JJ Midnight, the lead singer of Celebrating Queen, is from Connecticut and has performed in singing roles all of his life. When a musical associate first told him that he was a vocal print match for Freddie Mercury’s voice, he paid close attention to what the master teacher, Freddie himself would do. There is no better vocal coach than Freddie Mercury.
Shane McDonald - Keyboards / Musical Director
Shane McDonald is the Celebrating Queen keyboardist from Waterford, Ireland. Shane has been playing the music of Queen since 1992. Shane has transcribed many of Queen’s pieces through his Queen fan website and he knows the music of Queen inside-out, so you will get authentic performances with all the intricacies you expect to hear. This is our Spike Edney!
Steve Burchell - Lead Guitar
Steve Burchell, hails from England, and cut his teeth touring up and down the U.K. as a guitarist with multiple acts.
