This top tribute show is more than just a tribute – they are the complete
package! Their great combination of brilliant musicianship and tongue in
cheek humour has had rave reviews throughout the UK. Playing the
country-rock songs of the Traveling Wilburys, the band also steal some
choice numbers from its five iconic members; Roy Orbison, Tom Petty,
George Harrison, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne.
The fabulous Unravelling Wilburys are made up of Sticky Willy, Walter,
Thumper, Blind Melon and Honky Tonk Wilbury, the “real” Wilbury
brothers, who grew up in an Appalachian shack and first presented their
songs in Nashville back in 1987. The show tells the story of how their
songs were (allegedly) stolen by Messrs Orbison & Co. at Nashville’s
Tootsies Bar and the hard road they had to tread to get ‘em back.
With a set list comprising of songs including ‘Handle With Care’,
‘Tweeter And The Monkey Man’, ‘The Devil’s Been Busy’, ‘Pretty
Woman’, ‘Here Comes The Sun’, ‘Mr Blue Sky’, ‘Mr Tambourine Man’
and ‘American Girl’, this is a show not to be missed!
“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.”
