    The Unravelling Wilburys, a band of good ‘ol boys, turn their skills and replicate the sound and songs of the late 80s ‘super-group’ The Traveling Wilburys, where five of the greatest names in rock music history came together: George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and Jeff Lynne of ELO and completed two Wilburys albums, Volumes One and Three though, sadly, Roy Orbison had passed away before Volume Three was recorded.

    So… welcome to Thumper, Blind Melon, Sticky Willy, Walter and Javelin … The Unravelling Wilburys. In a former guise as top Beatles project, Sgt Pepper’s Only Dart Board Band, (The Flab Five), they had toured for 21 years playing at UK festivals, including Glastonbury, and at theatres and music venues across Europe and the UK. They also headlined at a Beatles festival at Montgomery, Alabama.

    Their shows feature the boys take on their songs being usurped by Messrs Harrison, Dylan, Lynne, Orbison and Petty, back in the late 80s at Nashville, Tennessee. The story unravels, as is told in the show, and it comes to be that The Unravelling Wilburys have now stolen back what is rightfully theirs! Not only that, they have stolen some choice solo songs (allegedly) from Messrs Dylan, Lynne, Orbison, Harrison and Petty as compensation... and now happily play them in their shows!

    Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the early songs of the influential progressive rock band Genesis with leading UK tribute band The Book of Genesis, who faithfully recreate the 1970s era complete with period musical instruments, fabulous costumes, an animated slide show, and atmospheric synchronised lighting in a packed 3-hour show.

    Nigel Betteridge (as Peter Gabriel/Phil Collins) has many years of experience singing the early Genesis songs. This coupled with the theatrical costumes and masks that Gabriel used (including
    “The Flower”, “Bat Wings”, “Magog”, “Crested Britannia” and more) makes for a truly dramatic performance;
    Howard Boder (as Tony Banks) our classically trained keyboards maestro, has gone to a lot of trouble to re-create the early ‘Genesis/Banks’ keyboard sounds. Generous to a fault, Howard tells you how to get these vintage sounds on YouTube (now with over 99,000 hits);

    Bob Arnold (as Steve Hackett) with his Les Paul Gold Top as his main instrument is a hard core devotee of Steve Hackett’s work (including both electric and acoustic repertoires) – marvelling at his jaw-dropping rendition of the Firth of Fifth solo is one of many highlights!

    Kirk Watson (as Mike Rutherford) not only has a multi-instrumentalist role (‘Rickenbacker’ double neck-bass/12-string, bass guitar, bass pedals, 12 string acoustic guitar), but sings backing vocals too – his contribution is, quite simply, awesome!

    Russ Wilson (as Phil Collins) hailing from the sensational Yes tribute band “Fragile”, Russ is unquestionably an incredable drummer. As a pro drummer and teacher, he brings technical authenticity and sensitivty to the role.
