This top tribute show is more than just a tribute - they are the completepackage! With their perfect combination of brilliant musicianship and tongue in cheek humour, they have had rave reviews throughout the UK.
Playing the country-rock songs of the 1980s supergroup ‘The Traveling Wilburys’, the band also steal some choice numbers from the back catalogue of each of its five iconic members; Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne.
Born out of the ashes of the popular B eatles tribute band Sgt Pepper’sOnly Dart Board Band, the fabulous UNRAVELLING WILBURYS are madeup of Sticky Willy, Walter, T humper, Blind Melon and Honky TonkWilbury, the “real” Wilbury brothers, who present their own unique slant on what it means to be a trib ute band. The show tells the story of the fateful night in Nashville’s Tootsies Bar in 1987, when their songs were(allegedly) stolen by Messrs Orbison & Co. and the hard road they had to tread to get ‘em back.
Songs such as ‘End of the Line’, ‘Handle with Care’, ‘The Devil’s Been
Busy’, and ‘Tweeter and The Monkey Man’ form the basis of the set,
which also features additional choice cuts including ‘Pretty Woman’
(Orbison), ‘Mr Blue Sky’ (Lynne), ‘American Girl’ (Petty), ‘While My GuitarGently Weeps’ (Harrison), and ‘A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall’ (Dylan).
With music for everyone to enjoy, this is an evening not to be missed. A fabulous night out for lovers of great music.
“Captured the style and sounds perfectly and with their own added
sense of humour gave the audience an evening to remember”.
“Thank you all for a sensational performance last night, it was
musicianship of extraordinary talent from you all.”
