Trembling into 2015

The Wilburys have a had a rockin’ great 12 months, ending with our second Xmas Xtravaganza at Dingwalls, and our final gig of the year at the Royal Oak in Hampton. Thanks to everyone who came to see us in 2014, from Barnsley to Broadstairs, and from the Half Moon in Putney to Beatles Day at Mons in Belgium – it’s a been a great ride to the end of the line, sorry end of the year..

The Wilburys At Dingwalls

But never fear, we’re back in early 2015 with our first Midlands gig at The Roadhouse in Birmingham on February 13th, followed by a return to the Half Moon on March 1st and visits to Farncombe, Surrey (March 20th), The Horns, Watord (April 5th), Tropic of Ruislip (April 24th) and others tbc – keep an eye on the website and our Facebook page.

We also hope to have a live recording or DVD out sometime during the year as promised, plus some other merch which we know many of you have been asking for. We’re also hoping to add a few new tunes to the set during 2015, although quite where we’re going to fit them in we have no idea!

Finally, big congratulations to the late great George Harrison (aka Nelson Wilbury) who’s being awarded a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys on February 8th – very much deserved, and we’ll all be there with him in spirit in the night. As the man himself said, “Handle With Care”.

Best from all the band,
Glen, Dave C, Andy, Dzal, Marko, Howard & Dave S.

Trembling Wilburys Newsletter #2, Sept/Oct 2014

TO BRUSSELS AND BEYOND….

Trembling Wilburys

Trembling Wilburys

The Wilburys will be busy in Brussels (well actually Mons) for Beatles Day in Mons on October 11th. Here’s a round-up of our other recent expolits…

We had a couple of great gigs in August, firstly at Broadstairs Folk Week where we sold out The Pavilion venue by the beach to great response. Then at our debut Half Moon Putney gig on August 31st an amazing crowd just wouldn’t let us go and we were re-booked immediately for March 1st 2015. Thanks folks!

We also had another SW London gig on Wednesday 1st October at the Grey Horse in Kingston, where we celebrated the release of the new George Harrison CD box-set, “The Apple Years”, with George also being the subject of a big celebrity tribute concert in LA on September 28th. Continue reading

Wilburys at Brian Epstein Tribute

TWiburys

Trembling Wilburys Rock the Room

The Wilburys played a great finale set at the Heritage Foundation tribute lunch to Brian Epstein at Regents Park Marriott on Sunday June 29th after the Blue Plaque unveiling in Argyll Street, London W1 where Epstein’s NEMS company was based from 1964-67. Wilbury drummer Dave Stark helped to organise the event and spoke at the unveiling, along with Heritage Foundation president Vicki Michelle and Adam Ant, to a crowd of around 200 plus press, radio and TV.

Beatle-related guests at the lunch included Bill Harry, Tony Bramwell, Geoffrey Ellis & other ex-NEMS staff, Joe Flannery, Tony Crane of the Merseybeats, authors Mark Lewisohn and Kevin Roach, Martin Lewis, songwriters Mitch Murray and Les Reed, actor Andrew Lancel who plays Brian in the new play “Epstein – The Man Who Made The Beatles” which opens at Leicester Square Theatre on July 30th (www.epsteintheplay.com), plus Andrew Sachs, Nicholas Parsons, Nicko McBrain of Iron Maiden and many others.

Messages were also read out from various Epstein clients & friends including Paul McCartney who wrote, “I know Brian would have been very proud to think that he had earned a Blue Plaque in the West End of London. He played a very important role in guiding the early career of us Beatles and more than that he was a lovely man whose friendship we all valued and who I will always remember with great fondness. Congratulations Brian, love from Paul McCartney”.

Stars come out for Blue Plaque unveiling

We were without bassist Marko ‘Jeff Lynne’ Laver on the day but our good pal Spike Jefferson stood in for him most admirably. Everyone loved the set – except the Queen, or rather her look-alike, who complained we were much too loud. Well, that’s rock & roll your majesty, and if ace guitarist Dzal Martin sees you again he says he’s gonna kick ya in the crown jewels!!

All in all it was a really great day and the Wilburys went down a treat. Next stop Broadstairs Folk Festival on August 13th and Belgian Beatles Day in October, we are of course up for any gigs or events in YOUR area subject to availability and fee – contact Dave Stark on 07956 270592.

Wilburys Meet Wombles Man As Cribbins Is Honoured!

Glen and Dave with Bernard Cribbins

Glen and Dave C meet Bernard Cribbins

Showbiz legends were in abundance at the Regents Park Marriott Hotel in Swiss Cottage on Saturday 16th November, when the Heritage Foundation paid special tribute to actor and comedian Bernard Cribbins OBE on achieving 70 years in the business. Best known for narrating The Wombles TV series; his appearances in three Carry On films; two hit records (‘Right Said Fred’ and ‘Hole In The Ground’) plus appearances in Doctor Who, Jackanory, Fawlty Towers, Wrong Arm Of The Law and many other TV programmes and feature films, Cribbins (84) was delighted to receive recognition from his peers at the Heritage Foundation’s annual Christmas Lunch. The glitzy event (complete with crackers, turkey & mince pies) concluded with a full set by the Trembling Wilburys, whose singers Glen Knowler (as George Harrison) and Dave Collison (as Roy Orbison) are seen flanking Cribbins. This turned out to be one of our best performances yet, and a great warm-up for our special Xmas party night at Dingwalls in Camden on December 3rd. Continue reading
