Over the past 9 years, Gary Mullen & The Works have performed their show One Night Of Queen to sold-out audiences throughout the UK, USA, Europe, South Africa and New Zealand to name but a few. They have also twice rocked the prestigious BBC Proms in the Park, in front of a very enthusiastic crowd of 40,000. Gary Mullen & The Works brings the spirit and passion of rock icon Freddie Mercury to life on stage with this spectacular rock tribute.
Gary Mullen's career as Freddie Mercury started in 2000, when he won the grand finale of the popular UK TV show Stars in Their Eyes with a record poll of 864,838 votes, the largest number of votes ever received in the popular TV show's history. Brian May was quoted on national television as saying; "Gary shares 'more than a likeness' to Freddie." The Chronicle reports that "Mullen's vocal range is impressive, no, unbelievable, to say the least..." He has also recorded various voiceovers for radio, television, and computer games.
In 2002 Gary formed his band "The Works," comprised of Davie Brockett, Billy Moffat, Jonathan Evans, and Malcolm Gentles.
David Brockett (Lead Guitar and Vocals) was rated in Total Guitar magazine as "One of Scotland's best guitarists." He has his own production company in Glasgow and recently completed the music for BAFTA award-winning TV series Raven. Billy Moffat (Bass Guitar and Vocals) has recently released a new solo single, "Personal Decay," featuring Gary Mullen on vocals. He also, along with David Brockett, played on the Frankie Miller tribute CD on the track "As Good As Gone." Jonathan Evans (Drums) states that "his main influences have been The Bare Naked Ladies, Matchbox Twenty and the James Taylor Quartet." His solid sense of rhythm and skill make him an ideal Roger. Malcolm Gentles (Keyboards) has been involved in musical projects for the BBC, Yorkshire Television and Channel 4. Malcolm has also had the privilege of performing for the Prince of Wales, the Princess Royal and the Duchess of Kent.
