George Harrison's 75th Birthday Special - Sunday 25th February
Top tribute band the Trembling Wilburys are celebrating what would be George Harrison's 75th birthday on Sunday 25th February at rock venue Nambucca in Holloway Road, north London.
Frontman Glen Knowler looks and sounds uncannily like the late Beatle & Traveling Wilburys co-founder Harrison, while the band also pays perfect homage to his Wilbury bandmates - Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, Jeff Lynne & Tom Petty. The band have been going for over six years mainly playing venues all over London & the South East, as well as venturing to other cities such as Birmingham, Mons (Belgium) and Liverpool where they played the legendary Cavern Club last October.
Drummer and band founder David Stark commented, "We've played some amazing gigs over the past few years and the band generates an incredible energy which everyone seems to love. Apart from Glen we have Dave Collison as an impeccable Roy Orbison, Andy McNish doubling up as Bob Dylan and Tom Petty, and bassist Marko Laver doing the honours as Jeff Lynne. Meanwhile lead guitarist Dzal Martin always gets the cheers for his incredible solos, while keyboard player Howard Robin(aka Ludwig van Wilbury) completes the line-up. We're really looking forward to playing Nambucca for the first time, it's an excellent venue with a great bar and sound system."
2018 also marks the 30th anniversary of the Traveling Wilburys' debut album 'Volume One' featuring such hits as 'Handle With Care' and 'End Of The Line', and the band is hoping to perform this classic album in its entirety on the night subject to final rehearsals. Their 2-hour show also features a selection of solo hits by the individual Wilburys including Beatles & ELO songs like 'Taxman', 'Something', 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps', 'Hold On Tight' and 'Roll Over Beethoven'.
Doors open at 7pm with an 8.15pm start while tickets are £10 on the door or £8 in advance, available from www.wegottickets.com/event/429236.

George Harrison's 75th Birthday Party! Celebrated in style with THE TREMBLING WILBURYS – CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF THE TRAVELING WILBURYS 1988 – 2018 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.
