Vicky O’Keefe was born into a life of music. Her father, Johnny O’ Keefe (JO’K) was Australia’s Pioneer and King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Vicky was raised on a diet of Bill Haley, Carole King, Elton John and Janis Joplin. After studying classical piano, guitar and singing, at age seventeen, Vicky hit the road with her original rock band “VOK ROK” touring the East Coast of Australia for 6 years, performing in major Clubs and Hotels where she developed a strong and loyal fan base. Vicky landed herself a contract with Warner Publishing and RCA records releasing 3 successful singles and went onto support a number of International Stars including Rick Nelson, Suzie Quatro and America appearing and singing on many high-profile television shows around Australia.
During the mid 90’s, Vicky worked with a promoter to perform a Tribute Show to her late father. This resulted in sellout shows at The Moorabbin Town Hall, Star Casino Sydney, Melbourne Crown Casino, Wrest Point Casino, Tasmania and a guest performance at the Perth Cup performing to over 10,000 people. Vicky recorded a Tribute Album with her own interpretations of her father’s greatest hits including ‘Shout’ and a moving Duet ‘I’m Counting on You’ in the same vain as Natalie and Nat King Cole. An avid songwriter, Vicky teamed up with her brother Peter O’Keefe to write a special tribute song for her dad, “Keep the Candle Burning” featured on the album ‘I’m Counting on You’ and an emotional highlight of Vicky’s live shows.
Invited to perform on “Rock the Boat” cruise aboard the Royal Caribbean, Vicky received standing ovations for her high energy performances and was voted Most Popular Artist. Sharing the stage with Chubby Checker, The Sweet, Aussie Icons Brian Cadd, Russell Morris and Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum, Vicky was invited back for a return performance. Vicky is now signed with US entertainment agency Blackburn International, embarking on a large number of international cruises with Princess Cruise Lines. Vicky also continues performing both Internationally and Australia wide promoting her latest album 50 Diamonds. Keeping her father’s memory and music alive with her Tribute Shows, Vicky’s passion for singing and performing is supported by a loyal following from all over the World.
