THE GREAT MAN'S MOST LOVED SONGS

AUSTRALIA'S OWN WILLIE NELSON TRIBUTE SHOW.

About The Show

A tribute to Willie Nelson and other country greats.
Sandra Beynon is Willie Nelson’s “Love Child” bringing to life the great man’s most loved songs.


Sean and Sandra love Willie Nelson – both for his music, his song-writing, his dedication to performing well into his old-age, his cheeky love of fun, and his commitment to being on the road. In 2024, at the age of 90, Willie is headlining a three month national tour of the USA!  Willie continues to record and is releasing singles regularly.

What better artist to emulate than the world’s most-loved octogenarian performer?

The Show pays tribute to his songs that stand the test of time, and infuse his material (and that of other country greats) with the pair’s unique talents and personalities on stage.

Great Music

A new spin on old favourites

A great song will always be a great song, across the great divide of time. Sandra and Sean bring the old world right into the modern atmosphere while being true to the spirit of Willie’s song-writing and performance. Western Swing is as much fun today as it was back in the wild, wild West of the USA where it was born – crowds will be boot-scooting to Sandra and Sean’s infectious performance. His “hallmark” hits are rousing and reminiscent. Willie’s quiet ballads still bring a tear to the eye and Sandra’s renditions are heart-warmingly authentic and beautifully sung.

 

Seven ukeleles tuned “Keith Richards” style by Sandra form the rhythm backdrop. Sean turns on his best virtuosic skill on the big beast acoustic guitar, and his strong foundation of meticulously hand-crafted bass and drum tracks bring a full live band sound to the show. A repertoire of his much-loved tunes, together with hits by his contemporaries, and a smattering of country rock favourites make this show a real crowd-pleaser – just check out the testimonials page!

Client Testimonials

It was great! It was really lovely.

"Recently we had Sandra and Sean perform at our country farmstay and they wowed the audiences against the backdrop of our vast outback skies.
Their fun, energetic and crowd engaging professionalism makes it clear they love what they do.
We cannot wait to have them back again."
Georgi Westlund
Owner, Corella Creek Farmstay - Nelia, NWQ - June 2022
"Recently we had the pleasure of hearing these artists at our Community Centre. Sandra had a good voice and sang in a distinct style. Sean sure could play a mean guitar. if you missed this show, you really missed something. A fun night was had by all."

The Willie Nelson Love Child Show performed during the 2015 Birdsville Races 'Race Week' at the Birdsville Community Hall. With a near sell out crowd, punters were well entertained during the evening whether they were sitting down or up the front dancing Sandra was flexible and easy to deal with and we were thrilled to hear of their support of Aussie Helpers. For a fun and entertaining show, look no further.

Body and Soul Music performed here at the Mount Isa Civic Centre in mid-September. Their music, singing and audience interaction was exceptional and the attendees to the private function spoke highly of the calibre of music. They were wonderful to work with and efficient in responding to emails in the lead up and organisation of the event. It was certainly a privilege having them perform here.

It was a great turnout. You're very talented. With the drought that's been on our country for the last four years, the locals really got a lot out of it. It's a credit to you for coming out and servicing the needs of people in these remote parts of Queensland - it's money well-spent. Thanks to Arts Queensland for supporting your tour.

Sean and Sandra did a fantastic show and drew a crowd of more than 50 people who also had meals and drinks which was great for a struggling outback business. Because of travel costs often shows are too expensive to be able to offer however this was really accessible. Everyone that attended really enjoyed the show. Musicians often promise promotional assistance and do not follow through or provide the information until so late that it is impossible to get a good crowd. Sandra was extremely professional constantly following up pre and post show for any publicity or assistance they could offer, they were great and I've invited them to play at the inaugural Cully Fest in 2016.

The performance Sandra and Sean put on was excellent. They really engaged with the audience. Everybody enjoyed the night and they are still talking about it. We hope they'll come back again.

Sean and Sandra are really hard workers. They put so much into every performance and went beyond our expectations, playing for hours longer than agreed to help us keep people in the pub. They are a pleasure to have around and we look forward very much to their return next year.

The show was just wonderful. We were spellbound by the quality of the performance and their rapport with the audience. The choice of songs was perfect and we can't wait for Sean and Sandra to return next year.
Trevor and Craig, Managers
Star Tourist Park, Charleville
It meant a lot to be able to have entertainers of the calibre of Sandra and Sean doing their Willie show here in the middle of nowhere. Almost the whole town turned up for their concert and we partied on well into the night after the show. They are wonderful to have around - creative and obliging. Sandra even made up an Outback Cocktail list to add a bit of pizazz to the event. I hope they'll join us again next year so I can put their show on the back of the big truck on the street!
Jim Smith - Owner,
Royal Hotel Bedourie
The spirit of music is alive and well with Sean and Sandra and their Willie Nelson show. The audience really enjoyed it and they struck a chord with everyone who came along. Sean's guitar playing is second to none, and Sandra's voice is just beautiful. I'm looking forward to having them back again in the future.

Ironbark Inn - Barcaldine
Sandra and Sean were meant to do just one show, but they pulled out all stops and performed three times during their 2 days here in Winton. Their music managed to pull in audiences of all ages and our pub was still rocking along well after our competitors (who only put on a DJ) closed their doors. They engaged with the audience, had people singing along and even did some karaoke at the end of the night. A really hard-working couple, love what they do and give great value for money.
Ben - Manager,
North Gregory Hotel, Winton
We hadn't done a dinner show before but it soon became clear that there was a demand for it. We had all the tables out and Sandra even provided checked tablecloths to really create a country atmosphere inside. The audience was spellbound by the quality of Sandra's voice and Sean's playing. Having such a successful evening was a real morale booster for us and the staff - we all partied on til the wee hours based on the success of the evening. We hope they return next year.

It was just absolutely fantastic. The very broad spectrum of Willie Nelson songs and I won the dance competition! It really grabbed the audience and was a really great show. .
Marie - audience member
Birdsville Community Hall
It was a great night. Quite a few people turned up and everyone enjoyed it. I certainly did. Those families with children up on the hill really got into the swing of things. Thanks to everyone who had a part in helping you get out here. Thank you and Sean for your time and your efforts. It was a great night under the wing of the Catalina - a unique setting - beautiful music and a very good night.

It was fabulous. We live in this rural outback town and don't see much entertainment other than the Camel Races and Easter. It was wonderful to have Arts Queensland supporting artists coming into the town to give us a little bit more cultural experience. Absolutely a credit to Sandra and her partner - it was lively fun and I danced the night through until it was time to go.

I really want to thank you for coming. We've had a wonderful time. All the residents just enjoyed it so much. You could see it by the hands clapping, the feet tapping and the applause... that's really the best applause we've had for a concert in a long time. Cath - Admin officerit's the most applause we've had for a long time.

I loved it. I had a ball. Some of the older music, a bit of Patsy Cline... was a trip down memory lane.
