For the first time in over 22 years Lefty and Nelson Wilbury of the Traveling Wilburys have performed together. On the 6th of February, Glen Knowler and myself performed as George Harrison and Roy Orbison at the Castle, Finchley Road.

And the great news is, we’re doing it all over again! On the 6th of March we’ll be right back there giving you Orbison, Harrison, Wilburys and maybe even a bit of Beatles. Want to see what it’s like? Have a look…

Last Sunday, the 7th of November, I joined the Dave Stark Five on stage at the Castle, Finchley Road, to do a small Roy Orbison tribute. I sung Oh, Pretty Woman, Only The Lonely, In Dreams and You Got It to a very warm and appreciative audience. There were some other great acts there that night including Mark Windows doing a great Mick Jagger and T-Rex act.

I shall hopefully be joining them again on the 5th of December to do some more Big O songs. It’s a wonderful night, a great venue, great band and lovely atmosphere. And, quite amazingly, it’s free and kids are welcome too!

Here’s some videos of my performance for you to have a look at.
