Roy Orbison was born on 23rd April 1936 and to celebrate his 75th birthday, we’re having a birthday bash to be remembered. Starring myself as the Roy ‘Lefty’ Orbison, Glen Knowler as George ‘Nelson’ Harrison and the Dave Stark Five bringing back the rest of the Trembling Wilburies. We’ll be featuring all the big hits from the Big O, George Harrison and the Traveling Wilburies. There’s also a raffle with lots of Roy Orbison goodies to be won. All with the full blessing and support of Barbara Orbison and the Orbison estate!
But, before that happens, you can also come and see us play with other artists at the Castle’s Dave Stark Five and Friends jam night on the 3rd of April. I’ll be the along with Glen to do a few numbers. It happens on the first Sunday of every month and is always a great night with fantastic musicians.
So, to summarise:

Well, today’s the day. I’m going to be doing my second official Roy Orbison tribute once again at the Castle, Finchley Road. I’m very excited and I’m hoping there will be many Big O fans there.
If you want details, click on the link below which will take you to the website with all the info. If you are a musician too, bring your instrument and sit in on the jam session between sets.
I’m going to be singing Oh, Pretty Woman, Only The Lonely, In Dreams and You Got It with the possible addition of Crying. Dave Stark’s band, the Dave Stark Five, were excellent last time around and will be just as superb this time.
Thanks for your support up to this point and I hope to see you at the Castle, today, from 5 til 10 for some great entertainment.
It was a very enjoyable night last night at Hennessy’s in South Harrow. There are quite a few well hidden talented people in there. It is now officially on the last Friday of every month so that makes it a brand new regular gig!
Hopefully, we might be getting a little live accompaniment from Dan with his guitar next month on the 29th of October. Should be a blinding night as it’s Kev’s birthday! If anyone else plays an instrument and wants to bring it along, that’s cool.
So, make a note, last Friday of every month at Hennessy’s, South Harrow (apart from December). Thanks to everyone there last night for making it great.
