THE TREMBLING WILBURYS
CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF THE TRAVELING WILBURYS 1988 – 2018
If you’re looking for a tribute band with a difference, who play an incredible variety of songs by some of rock’s greatest legends, then you’ve just struck gold. The Trembling Wilburys pay perfect homage to the Traveling Wilburys, the amazing supergroup formed in 1988 by George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan and the late great Tom Petty with hits including “Handle With Care”, “End Of The Line” & “She’s My Baby” as well as their incredible solo catalogues, plus Beatles & ELO songs.
Formed 30 years ago in 1988, the original Wilburys never played live as Roy Orbison passed away shortly after the release of their debut album “Volume 1”, but luckily the Tremblers bring you their version of the “show that never was” with an incredibly uplifting two hours of fantastic music. In addition the band features two of the closest look-&-sound-alikes of any tribute act, with GLEN KNOWLER being the living double of George Harrison, while DAVE COLLISON perfectly captures Roy Orbison’s unique vocal range and look. Absolutely NO WIGS in this band, folks!
The band has a great following and has played many great gigs & functions in the UK & Europe over the past few years, including festivals, theatres, Beatles conventions, holiday resorts, sports clubs and many rock venues. The line-up also features incredible lead guitarist DZAL MARTIN also renowned for his work with Terry Reid, The Equals, No Dice, Box of Frogs & many others, while drummer & manager DAVE STARK is also a well-known music industry insider who has some great stories of meeting George Harrison & all the Beatles along with Roy Orbison & Jeff Lynne. In addition the band was also officially endorsed & supported by Dave’s good friend the late Barbara Orbison, widow of Roy.
